What is first aid?

First aid is the act of providing emergency medical assistance to a sick or injured person until professional medical help arrives.

It covers a range of skills and competencies, from basic care to more complex skills, such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), using an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator), and applying techniques to manage severe bleeding.

Australia Wide First Aid certificates are recognised all around Australia. Your C.V. will be enhanced by the addition of your first aid certificate, and you’ll be prepared to take effective action in emergency situations.

Why learn first aid?

Being able to provide first aid when a medical emergency arises can means quicker recovery for the patient. Without first aid, the outcomes can be far worse.

First aid is much more than dressing a wound or trying to alleviate pain. It also includes knowing how to provide basic life support or how to properly administer an auto-injector (Epi-Pen) when someone is experiencing anaphylaxis.

Australia Wide First Aid courses include face-to-face training that takes from 2 to 5 hours to complete.

Your first aid certificate will be recognised all over Australia and can be applied in any workplace or community setting. You’ll find that gaining the knowledge and skills to provide first aid is a real confidence booster.

First aid in the workplace

Health and safety standards for the workplace have been established by the peak bodies in their respective industries.

The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA), for example, sets standards for those who work with children. Working within that sector, you’d need to undertake the prescribed training.

Workplace Safety is an issue Australia Wide First Aid takes seriously. Courses such as Provide First Aid and Child Care First Aid, specifically cover scenarios within the workplace.

Our courses comply fully with the guidelines set by industry peak bodies.
