Provide Basic Emergency Life Support [Level 1]
Real First Aid was established in response to a glaring lack of essential first aid skills among the general Australian populace. The importance of saving lives and dealing with acute medical conditions wasn’t underestimated, but complacency somehow led people to believe that CPR and first aid skills were someone else’s area of responsibility. Real First Aid have worked hard to change this mindset, and are proud to provide first aid courses and innovative learning methods that result in knowledge and skills retention for application in the real world. Providing basic emergency life support is something we should all know how to do.
Real First Aid uses the most successful training methods for delivering course information. Our philosophy of ‘learning by doing’ is paramount for achieving best outcomes, with students retaining far more information than in a regular classroom ‘audience’ situation.
The skill-set required for delivering CPR and first aid in emergency situations is primarily hands-on, so Real First Aid engages students in a range of real-life scenarios to help assimilate course material. This nationally accredited course takes only 6 hours to complete, with graduates attaining certification that lasts for 3 years. The investment of time is minimal and when first aid courses attainment help save lives, the skills learnt become priceless.
Provide Basic Emergency Life Support is a natural adjunct to the Provide CPR [Level 1] course which is also offered at Real First Aid. Every aspect of CPR is thoroughly learnt, including responding to an unconscious person, airway management, providing artificial respiration and two-rescuer CPR. The procedural steps for administering CPR to adults, children and infants are taught using simulations that resemble real-life situations, and the principles of Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) are comprehensively covered. In addition, students learn the standard procedures for communicating in an emergency situation.
Students learn appropriate emergency techniques for responding to critical incidents while also developing teamwork and leadership skills that are highly valued in all work and social environments. Real First Aid courses are career-building and character building.
Realistic Emergency Training
This course really packs a lot in over six hours, including Epipen injection instruction for managing severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), plus strategies for the management of bleeding and bandage application to support limbs and restrict the movement of broken bones. Real First Aid courses instructors are experienced emergency services personnel with a dedicated commitment to share their knowledge in realistic settings. Students learn the subject while bonding with other participants in teamwork exercises designed to prepare graduates for any emergency they encounter.
Many high-risk industries use simulation training for improved student outcomes. Realistic scenarios elicit natural responses from students and provide tutors with genuine performance analysis for giving accurate feedback. By the end of the course, students at Real First Aid will have theoretical and practical experience that can be replicated to save lives whenever an emergency arises.
