First aid knowledge and skills are valued by individuals and communities. Trained first aiders provide safety and security in any situation and assist casualties until medical assistance arrives. First aid qualifications are life saving attainments that can be gained by almost anyone, and are useful in workplace, home and community settings. Low-frequency, high-risk accidents and emergencies happen every day around Australia, and learning appropriate emergency response techniques is an investment in time and money well spent.
Even basic first aid knowledge can make a difference in life threatening situations. The techniques and procedures are easy to learn and apply, and the addition of portable emergency equipment and devices will equip trained first aiders with the ability to perform procedures previously only accessed by experienced paramedics and medical emergency response teams. Successful first aid and CPR response is entirely possible, and when the techniques are delivered by Real First Aid instructors, the capabilities become life-long attainments.
What first aid course is most useful?
Real First Aid courses are designed to suit every individual circumstance. From assisting with sprains and strains to performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with the assistance of an automated external defibrillator (AED), the courses are tailored for every individual and structured for progressive learning. Since 2014, Real First Aid has grown to become a major Australian first aid training company, thanks to innovative learning methods and the best course instructors available.
Real First Aid offers nationally accredited courses such as Provide CPR (HLTAID001) and Provide First Aid (HLTAID003), along with industry specific courses including Perform Rescue from a Live LV Panel (UETTDRRF06B) and Remote First Aid (HLTAID005).

How do I apply for first aid courses in Sydney?
There are plenty of first aid courses available, but understanding the difference between training and genuine emergency response capability is the Real First Aid difference. First aid training isn’t a new idea, and approximately 26% of Australians have undertaken a registered first aid course at some point. However, first aid skills are only useful if they are retained and recalled when required. Unfortunately, the vast majority of trained first aiders aren’t confident of performing life saving procedures correctly when faced with a real emergency. This situation is untenable to Real First Aid, with the company founded in response to the glaring disparity between first aid qualifications and genuine emergency response capability.
Real First Aid introduces newcomers and previously trained first aiders to the benefits of simulation based training. This provides course participants with realistic first aid emergency response even during training, ensuring graduates are emergency-ready the moment training is complete. Simulation training has been used for decades by the military, medical emergency staff and paramedics to hone their skills, and at Real First Aid the same skill set is now available. Simulation based first aid training includes:
• Creation of realistic emergency scenarios for tailored first aid training
• The addition of actors and props for greater immersion and deeper learning outcomes
• Sirens, flashing lights, pyrotechnics, fake wounds, 000 calls and more
• Training using real equipment including defibrillators and adrenaline auto-injectors
• Team bonding for emergency response at work, school or elsewhere
• Development of communication and leadership capabilities
• Experienced and dedicated course instructors who encourage and lead by example
