Here at AWFA, our primary objective is to help you become a confident and effective first aider.
As such, our first aid courses are split into two digestible chunks – the online eLearning component, and the face-to-face assessed training.
The online eLearning component must be completed at least the night before attending your first aid course. It is a multiple-choice quiz that you can attempt as many times as you need. You’ll be supported through your learning with our free First Aid eBook, which we’ve curated with plenty of explanatory text and images to help clarify different first aid procedures.
Once you’ve breezed through your online quiz, you’ll be able to put your knowledge to the test under the guidance and support of an experienced AWFA trainer. The face-to-face assessed training will encompass a variety of first aid procedures, including how to perform CPR, how to use an AED, and how to treat and bandage different stings, bites, breaks, and burns.
Our trainers are not only on-hand to demonstrate proper first aid technique, they’ll check your technique to ensure that you leave the classroom with absolute clarity on how to manage different emergency scenarios.
Our new Geelong location is based at the Geelong Lawn Tennis Club, the oldest provincial tennis club in our country’s history.
We couldn’t be more excited about the move, as Geelong Lawn Tennis Club was only recently refurbished, and it now boasts an enviable array of tennis courts, fitness facilities, and function areas.
AWFA has a long history in Victoria, and all our Victorian training centres are primed for our students’ comfort. We have plenty of on-site parking and amenities, as well as strict hygiene measures in line with current infection controls.
What’s more, our trainers are industry leaders who use their expansive professional and personal experiences to help their students become the most effective first aiders possible.
Your first aid training session at the Geelong Lawn Tennis Club, together with the online eLearning component, will no doubt instil you with the confidence and know-how to assist in any crisis.
