Health and safety issues are becoming more prominent in Australian society. The capacity for first aid procedures to make a real difference is greater than ever and training providers have access to the latest life saving devices and equipment. First aid qualifications are highly regarded and expected by many employers who want to improve safety while also providing opportunities for employees to progress with versatile attainments that develop leadership capabilities.
Real First Aid is at the forefront of change, delivering first aid skills with unique training methods. Our simulation based training empowers students with genuine first aid abilities and the confidence to respond to any emergency. When the courses are delivered by Australia’s finest instructors the attainments become life skills as well as life saving skills for the benefit of everyone. We hold courses for beginner, intermediate and advanced first aiders, and make sure your qualifications are deeply embedded for genuine first aid response to any emergency.
What first aid courses can beginners join?
At Real First Aid, we offer qualifications that can be built upon for advanced emergency response capability. First aid and CPR procedures are all easy to learn and perform, allowing us to teach you the full spectrum of techniques in only one or two days. Beginners courses train first aiders in some of the most commonly used emergency response procedures with the greatest potential to assist casualties and confidently approach life-threatening situations. Courses suitable for beginners include:
Provide CPR (HLTAID001): This nationally accredited course takes only 3.5hrs to complete and offers qualifications that are valid for 12 months. Using simulation training methods, we deliver the ability to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), including automated external defibrillator (AED) practice. The course includes artificial respiration training and appropriate emergency response while also empowering students with natural teamwork and leadership skills.

Provide First Aid (HLTAID003): Previously known as Senior First Aid/Level 2 First Aid, this course develops a comprehensive framework for newcomers. Along with Provide CPR capabilities, Provide First Aid also includes response to respiratory emergencies, shock and anaphylaxis, bandaging, head and spinal injuries and a whole lot more. Taking only one or two days to complete, with anaphylaxis training included, this qualification offers certification for 3 years, making it an incredibly valuable attainment.
Childcare First Aid Course (HLTAID004): Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting has become the industry standard course for educators and support staff working with children. Asthma and anaphylaxis training are highlighted, using simulations to develop appropriate skills and the right demeanour when approaching children requiring first aid intervention. Taking only one or two days to complete, with certification lasting for 3 years, this course is a great introduction to first aid qualifications for industry-specific training.
What requirements are needed to join a course?
The most important requirement to learn first aid is a desire to assist others in need. Our talented first aid instructors will impart the knowledge and skills, while you absorb the capabilities during simulated emergency response practice. Our courses act as building blocks for development of impressive capabilities, and we ensure every student develops their maximum life saving potential. Many industries and employers now expect relevant first aid attainments from employees, so we make sure you are job-ready and stand out from the crowd. The expansion of Real First Aid training has been dramatic since establishment in 2014, delivering training courses to well known Australian employers including Sanitarium, Telstra, Sea Shepherd and the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology.
