Why learning first aid is so important

First aid knowledge is invaluable in times of a medical emergency.

To understand the value of first aid training, you only need to imagine how you’d feel if someone close to you fell victim to a life-threatening accident, or collapsed from a stroke or a heart attack, and you were unable not help.

Being able to make a difference in such circumstances, is what first aid is all about. Nobody who’s done an accredited first aid course, would ever regret doing so.

First aid training will have a positive effect on you, as well as on your family and your colleagues. Knowing what to do in an emergency is reassuring for everyone.

A First aid certificate is also a boost for your career. Your chances of getting the job you’re after will improve because you’ve demonstrated your willingness to take responsibility. And prospective employers will see this.

First aid certification also adds Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points, which count toward career advancement in many industries.

Sunshine Coast Community

The Great Outdoors could hardly be more enticing than on the Sunshine Coast. There’s something for everyone here — from the rustic beauty of the hinterland to the golden beaches of the Sunny Coast and boutique shops and cafés at Noosa, Maroochydore, and Mooloolaba.

But accidents do happen — anywhere, anytime.

All too frequently, people get into bother in the surf and in the pool. Not just visitors. Locals too.

There are stingers, in the water and out. People fall victim to heat stroke. They fall off bikes and skateboards, and get into all sorts of scrapes.

Life-saving first aid is how you can help make the Sunshine Coast a safer place. And your first aid certificate is the ideal way to show your community spirit.
