First Aid certification is a requirement in many workplaces. When you’re applying for a job, completing a First Aid course could keep you in the running.
Australia Wide First Aid courses in Sydney — as with courses we hold all over Australia — take just 2 to 5 hours of face-to-face learning, depending on which course you choose.
The importance of First Aid is recognised all over the world and capacity to make a difference cannot be overstated.
Preserving life is a primary objective of First Aid. It can often bring relief from crippling pain and prevent medical conditions from deteriorating while more advanced care is on its way.
In most situations, a First Aid practitioner is first on the scene and able to provide immediate care to sick or injured patients until full medical help becomes available.
Administering First Aid will make an undeniable contribution to a patient’s recovery. In an overwhelming number of cases, First Aid has been the difference between life and death.
First Aid training gives you the confidence to step in to help when an emergency occurs. Responding straight away, the action you take could save a life or prevent a person suffering permanent disability.
Identifying hazards is another benefit of having a knowledge of First Aid. You would know how to assess an emergency response that would be safest in the situation as well as the appropriate steps to take to minimise danger.
Many lines of work make First Aid certification a condition of employment. After the home, the workplace looms large when it comes to threats to our health.
Wherever hazards including high-powered machinery are used, First Aid becomes an essential requirement. And, of course, it plays a central role in the responsibilities of any operation that involves mass gatherings, including education centres, public swimming facilities, transport services, shopping malls, and more.
You will earn a Statement of Attainment following the successful completion of the required units of a First Aid module — from CPR to career-specific modules, such as providing emergency responses in education and care settings. These training courses are available at Australia Wide First Aid.
Revisions to procedures and also compliance with national guidelines, such as those from the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) are vital, and certification is valid for set periods.
