What Is First Aid?

First aid refers to the administration of immediate care to an ill or injured individual until professional medical help arrives. First aid SKILLS can serve the purpose of treating a minor condition, such as when dressing a small wound, however in more serious cases it is provided with the intention of administering only preliminary care until such a time when a sick or injured person is attended to by emergency and medical professionals.

First aid is typically given in order to prevent a condition from getting worse, to provide comfort and quicken the recovery of an affected individual, and finally, to prevent death and preserve life. The last of these become particularly apparent when first aid techniques such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation is carried out to save the life of a casualty.

Why Do You Need to Learn First Aid in Sydney?

Learning First Aid in Sydney or anywhere for that matter is of course a vital skill which may just save someones life. But did you know that the benefits of providing First Aid go far beyond only saving a life?

In many cases, providing immediate assistance helps in speeding up a person’s recovery. The health of a casualty can also deteriorate very rapidly if they don’t receive First Aid immediately. Unfortunately, many people do suffer long-term or even life-long disabilities simply because they either did not get First Aid at all, or didn’t get it soon enough.

By completing a First Aid Course, you’ll be equipping yourself with precious knowledge and skills that could make all the difference in being able to save the life of someone at work or at home. In less serious cases it can be the difference in being able to assist in preserving someones quality of life.

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements are pretty simple. Students need to be at least 14 years of age to attend our first aid courses.

Although we believe that people should learn as early as possible about the invaluable role that First Aid Health Training plays in creating safe and healthy communities. It’s possible that those under 14 years of age may not possess sufficient physical strength to perform some of the vital practical techniques taught such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

It is for the same reason that we require all students, regardless of age, to have the physical ability to administer resuscitation by performing uninterrupted CPR while kneeling on the floor for two minutes. Students who are under the age of 18 are required to provide signed parental/guardian consent at enrolment.
