You could go through the entire contents of a quality First Aid kit in an attempt to itemise the comprehensive scope of this course.

CPR is a life-saver for a person who has been deprived of life-giving oxygen, including cardiac arrest victims.

HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting

– also known as Child Care First Aid, this course is a career requirement for many people, and also a compelling choice for concerned parents.

Ideal for career advancement, these two courses include CPR as well as more advanced first aid. More e-Learning is needed, as well as a half-day of face-to-face training.

About Our First Aid Courses

First Aid refers to a set of first responses to a range of medical emergencies.

In Australia, these responses are catalogued by the National Register of Vocational and Education Training as units of competency. Qualification is by way of Statements of Attainment in these competencies.

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. You’re 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.

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

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.
