Your Trusted First Aid Training Provider

Knowing how to save a life involves a lot of preparation. There’s the issue of knowing what actions to apply, what tools you can use, and who to call for assistance when a situation becomes dire. The discipline that informs these actions is called first aid, and while there is a lot to learn in order to build these skills, they are of universal value to everyone. Australia Wide First Aid, a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO no. 31961), wishes to advocate the said value of first aid and aims to make first aid training readily accessible to every Australian.

Along with many other Aussies receiving first aid training from us every year, you will have absolute confidence that what your being taught is of the highest industry standard. You will end up with a First Aid Course Certificate that is highly compliant that meets all the standards of our regulator – The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).

Your Statement of Attainment (PDF) will be emailed within 48 hours upon successful completion of the course.

First Aid Training

Australia Wide First Aid hosts first aid training in 20 locations across the country, and each venue is easy to reach via public or private transport. Outside of the training centres, students may also book our team for group sessions in the convenience students home or workplace. Our courses are open for enrolment, and the scope of each course varies, from basic first aid courses to stand alone single unit courses focussed on certain techniques (such as for the CPR courses). All first aid modules are taught by our competent and experienced staff, and our endorsement from the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) can attest to this. Students who are time poor or those returning to renew their certification are attracted to our streamlined blended courses which save significant face to face contact time). Students also receive their Statement of Attainment on the same day as the course.

One of Australia Wide First Aid’s locations is in the amazingly beautiful Gold Coast, where the city meets the beach. Along with a bustling glitter strip, the Gold Coast is home to some of Australia’s most famous beaches. Dubbed the “Adventure Lover’s Playground,” a typical day here could consist of a neighbourhood stroll, a visit to a nature reserve, a trip to a theme park or, of course, a wave or two at the beach. But with such excitement all around, this playground is still not immune from danger, and accidents still happen anywhere and anytime—be it in the form of heat stroke brought on by a heat wave in summer, an marine sting, or drowning. Regardless, all of the Gold Coast’s attractions can be fully explored and enjoyed especially when we all do our part in keeping the community safe by learning life saving first aid skills and receiving first aid certification.

What is First Aid, and What are the 3Ps?

At its core, first aid refers to a set of interventions for someone who requires immediate medical care, applied before medical assistance becomes available. First aid awareness can be developed at any age, and in fact it is recommended that Australians start young when it comes to treating simple injuries or bouts of sickness. Formal first aid training, which will come with certification, involves learning more complex techniques like cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Students in a training course will constantly revisit the 3 basic principles of first aid, or 3Ps: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery. This they will do by strengthening their foundation in cutting edge first aid techniques, as well as their abilities to make tough calls, act quickly under pressure, and exercise compassion. The more people who understand the 3Ps and the actions behind them, the safer and healthier their home communities become.

How Will First Aid Benefit You and Your Community?

It’s a no brainer that advanced first aid knowledge will see you through medical emergencies when they happen. It really hits home when we picture a family member suddenly falling victim to a serious life threatening accident, or if a coworker collapsed from a stroke or a heart attack. Who would be there to assist them, and who can increase their chances of recovering properly after the fact? If you learn first aid, you will have the chance of a life time to turn things around for the better. You will be able to trust yourself to help others, and it’s a given that after doing so the person you have assisted will be so grateful to you and see you as the person who saved their life!

Outside the context of an emergency, your first aid knowledge can improve the quality of life in your everyday surroundings. Your family members will be able to depend on you and feel safe and secure when you are around, and you’ll keep the morale up in your office, club, or organisation. If you are alone, you can also draw from first aid knowledge to stay composed, assess your own need to call for medical assistance, and better preserve your own health and wellbeing.

First aid knowledge also improves your odds of finding a good job—whether the training credentials are a prerequisite to being hired, or are an extracurricular edge to an unrelated field. You are more likely to get that job your after or get that increase in pay from your existing job after obtaining first aid certification. In addition, first aid certification is a means of accruing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points, which you may need to satisfy your existing industries continual professional development requirements, and for career advancement in general.


How Does One Become a First Aid Provider?

When you chose to do your first aid course with a nationally recognised training organisation like Australia Wide First Aid, you will be awarded a Statement of Attainment upon successfully completing your first aid course. There are regular modules that revolve around basic first knowledge, and modules that cover singular techniques like CPR, and modules that are geared toward workplace compliance for first aid, as well as topics such as anaphylaxis and asthma management module suitable for child care and education professionals. Our courses are streamlined for people who are time poor as well as returning pupils wanting to renew their first aid skills and certification as quickly as possible.

Although the basic concepts of first aid can be understood by young children and should be encouraged as early as possible in life, our minimum age of first aid course participants in our courses is set at 14 years of age. Minors under the age of 18 must submit a form of consent from their parents or guardians. Upon completing all their course requirements, students will then receive a Statement of Attainment, which is fully accredited and recognised throughout the country.
