Of the 26% of Australians trained in CPR, only 4% feel confident enough to administer it. This means that even after completing CPR training, many simply don’t know what to do, or are afraid of doing the wrong thing. Quite frankly, we don’t think this is fair. Every person who makes the effort and commitment to learn CPR should walk away with the confidence and skills to provide it.

There’s a reason why Real First Aid receives on-going endorsements, industry and peer acknowledgement and positive reviews from graduates. Our dedication to delivering world- class first aid training is paramount. We truly want every student to engage, enjoy and learn from their experience with us. We understand that choosing a first aid trainer provider requires trust, and we want you to always feel like you’re in safe hands.
We live in a fast-moving world full of responsibilities, but is there any valid excuse for not dedicating 3.5 hours to learn how to save lives? That’s as long as it takes to learn the practical aspects and resuscitation techniques of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), including the skills required to respond quickly in an emergency. Since inception in 2014, Real First Aid has raised the CPR profile, educated business and industry leaders, and introduced innovative learning strategies so students achieve life-saving and life-changing results.
The Provide CPR course empowers students to act with clarity and confidence in any situation where a person suffers cardiac arrest. Real First Aid courses are designed to facilitate maximum information retention; an absolute necessity if CPR learning is to transfer adequately in life-threatening situations. Real First Aid Courses instructors are experienced and highly qualified emergency services personnel who desire to bring about real change in CPR awareness through new and improved teaching methods.
Provide CPR Attainments
Although short, this course dramatically improves the way graduates think and act under pressure when administering CPR. The steps involved in CPR aren’t complex when taught by experts using real-life scenarios, hands-on CPR training and novel simulations that mimic actual emergencies. The classroom environment and simulations can even be fine-tuned for industry-specific needs.
Provide CPR attainments include all the steps required to satisfactorily perform CPR, including how to respond to an unconscious person, how to manage airways, and the proper technique for performing artificial respiration. CPR procedures for treating adults, children and infants are thoroughly learnt, along with the fundamental principles of Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) and communicating in an emergency. That’s a lot to learn in 3.5 hours, and one reason information retention by students has been unsatisfactory in the past. From a Real First Aid perspective, CPR knowledge is easily retained if it is taught effectively.
CPR-Learning By Doing
The course encourages teamwork and fosters leadership qualities in an inclusive environment where students become participants rather than idle onlookers. Practical involvement, role-play and genuine interaction are key elements of knowledge retention that Real First Aid fully understands, and the results are encouraging to say the least. Real First Aid have deservedly garnered high praise during the past few years for dedication to CPR and first aid awareness, along with glowing endorsements from former students who have become empowered and confident enough to save lives.
Real First Aid utilises ‘learning by doing’ concepts that have been employed by paramedics and military professionals for decades. Simulations are incredibly realistic when participants are forced to test knowledge and ability under pressure, especially while simultaneously considering a range of factors or variables. Outcomes include deeper learning and greater awareness, with the potential to make a real difference in the outcome of a person suffering cardiac arrest. Students appreciate the safe learning environment, while the high level of competency and knowledge retention achieved is a great reward for Real First Aid staff who are dedicated to facilitating the highest standards of CPR and first aid courses training.
