Having a first aid certification offers numerous benefits and long-lasting value both to individuals with certification and the people surrounding them.

Our company offers a variety of training courses, which are available in 21 locations across the country. These courses can be booked any day of the week, and they are designed so that you can get your certification in just 1 to 2 days.

Western Australia, the country’s largest state, is home to more than 2.5 million people. More than 90% of the population live in Perth, the bustling capital where various industries have bloomed since the 1950s. Belmont is a mixed-use suburb located just 7 kilometres from Perth’s central business district. Meanwhile, Joondalup is located about 26 kilometres north of Perth. It’s an urban centre with a business district that is focused on retail. Australia Wide First Aid’s training venues in these two strategic locations will make it easier for those living in Western Australia to acquire the training they need to be certified first aid providers.
What is First Aid and Why Do You Need to Learn It?
Simply put, first aid is any form of medical assistance given to a person who is suffering from an injury or illness. It prevents the patient’s condition from getting worse until proper and full medical assistance can be provided. Because we can’t predict when and where accidents and medical emergencies would happen, first aid skills are quite valuable in preventing panic and loss of life during these situations.
Having proper training and certification will give you the right set of skills and the confidence to be able to help those in need, regardless of where the emergency may occur. Learning first aid is even more critical if someone you know suffers from an illness that may require immediate care, like severe allergies, heart conditions, and seizure disorders. When you have the right knowledge and training, you can give your loved ones and friends potentially life-saving first aid.
You can also improve safety conditions at home and at your place of work in order to minimise risks of injuries and other accidents. In fact, being certified in first aid may help boost your employability and pay grade. There are also various industries where first aid knowledge comes as a huge plus.
Australia Wide First Aid is a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961) that can provide you with fully accredited courses at the best prices. We are also endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing or ACN, so you can rest assured that you will receive only the most professional and efficient training for providing first aid.
Safety and Survival: The Importance of Prompt and Proper First Aid
The ultimate goal of administering prompt and proper first aid is to preserve a person’s life. First aid also aims to improve a person’s condition or at least prevent their injury or illness from becoming worse before a medical professional can take over. When done correctly, first aid treatments might very well spell the difference between life and death. Moreover, knowing how to correctly administer first aid is not only critical for preventing the loss of life; it also has an impact in the patient’s recovery time and quality of life after the accident or injury.
Apart from having the right skills and theoretical knowledge, first aid providers should also be calm, considerate, and compassionate. They should have the right mindset so that they can quickly and correctly assess the situation and make good decisions based on those observations. At the same time, they should also have a reassuring, calming presence so that the patient won’t feel anxious or afraid.
What Does It Take to Be a First Aid Provider?
In Australia, you need to have a statement of attainment before you can become an authorised first aid provider. This statement or certificate will be given to you after you complete the required units of a first aid module. Australia Wide First Aid offers a range of first aid training modules, including emergency first aid, CPR and LVR, asthma management, and workplace-specific courses, among others.
