The vital importance of first aid
At home and in the workplace, injuries and illnesses occur all too frequently. First aid enables an immediate and often, life-saving response to emergency medical situations.
First aid training gives you the confidence to step in and help when someone is in need of medical assistance. Calm and assured action is vital at moments like this.
Empowering you to act effectively in an emergency is not all. First aid knowledge also allows you to see your surroundings in a new light. Scanning your environment, you will easily identify potential hazards and know how to minimise risks and develop emergency response plans for the home or workplace.
A first aid certificate is also good for your career. First aid knowledge is a requirement in many lines of work. It can add CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points, and employers will acknowledge your motivation, resourcefulness, and value to their business.
Jumpstart your career while learning how to save lives by taking a course with Australia Wide First Aid — a nationally registered training organisation.
What it means to provide first aid
The aim of first aid is to preserve life, reduce pain, and prevent a patient’s condition from worsening.
Immediate first aid care for a sick or injured person fills the critical gap in time until full medical help becomes available.
When you administer first aid, you are in a position to promote a patient’s recovery or help save a life.
First aid knowledge and skills will change your mindset. You will make decisions more efficiently and assuredly. That’s a benefit of being able to assess situations more quickly and accurately.
This leads to confidence and calm. With a compassionate manner, you will be able to reassure a person who may be fearing the worst, not to mention onlookers who may be anxious as well. But seeing you provide immediate medical assistance through first aid will avert any panic.
Easy path to becoming a first aider
Earning your first aid certificate is something you can even achieve in one day.
After your enrolment, you can get a quick start on the pre-course reading, then submit your e-Learning. You’re then ready for your face-to-face first aid training and assessment. Once you’ve successfully completed this, your first aid certificate will be emailed to you the same day.
Important notes about first aid qualification
Once you book in, you’ll receive your First Aid eBook from Australia Wide First Aid.
The eBook will be handy to help you answer the multiple-choice e-Learning. You’ll need to submit it by 11:59PM the day before your scheduled face-to-face first aid training.
After completing both the online first aid course and your practical training and assessment, your first aid certificate will be emailed in PDF form, ready to print or send on to employers.
CPR certification should be renewed annually. Provide First Aid and Child Care First Aid certificates should be renewed every 3 years.
