Is First Aid Training Necessary for Everyone?

Everyone benefits from first aid training. Those who undertake training become empowered, while casualties they assist are always grateful for the ability first aid qualifications offer. With enough qualified first aiders on hand, all Australians will be safer, making Real First Aid training the solution for people who want to step forward and help when no one else can.

Which first aid training course is best for me?

This is an important first question. First aid and CPR training courses are always expanding to meet industry demands and expectations, so knowing where your qualification fits in is an important consideration. In many cases, a person’s career choice will determine the most suitable first aid course. For example, Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting (HLTAID004) is the go-to specialised course for childcare and education workers.

Your choice of first aid training will also be influenced by Real First Aid course delivery methods. For group learning at your premises, we deliver your chosen course by constructing simulation-based training exercises that develop teamwork and uncover localised hazards. We also welcome beginner, intermediate and advanced first aiders at out Sydney and Melbourne headquarters for tailored training and instruction. Possibly our Real First Aid ‘Public Courses’ are more your style, where individuals and friends learn important first aid foundational skills at handy locations around Sydney and Melbourne.

Real First Aid Scenario Training

What is the best first aid training course for beginners?

People new to first and CPR training are amazed how much they get to learn. Among our introductory courses, Provide CPR (HLTAID001) takes only 3.5hrs to complete, and Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002) only 6hrs. In other words, your ability to save lives in emergency situations becomes a reality in less than a day of first aid training.

Here are just some of the essential skills you will learn in basic first aid training:

• Responding to an unconscious person
• Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to an adult, child and infant
• Provide airway management and artificial respiration
• Understand the basic principles of automated external defibrillation (AED)
• Communicating in an emergency
• Appropriate response to shock and anaphylaxis

The extent of knowledge and number of skills developed showcases just why first aid training is so valuable. All the procedures are easy to learn in a short space of time, and if recalled correctly, are straight-forward to apply during real emergencies.

What advanced training courses are available?

Real First Aid training courses act like building blocks for further development. The knowledge first aid beginners are armed with is incredibly valuable, with potential for increasing skills to suit the needs of workplaces, schools and other establishments. Advanced training courses are in demand by employers, and many diverse industries expect applicants to hold relevant first aid qualifications. Real First Aid simulation training methods are extremely popular, making it possible for us to visit you wherever you are in Sydney or Melbourne for delivery of tailored first aid training. Our advanced courses are diverse, including Remote First Aid (HLTAID005), Tactical First Aid Casualty Care (RFATAC001-3) and Perform Rescue from a Live LV Panel (UETTDRRF06B).

What ESI training courses are available?

Workers in many industries carry out tasks in dangerous situations, including electricity services employees who work with dangerous cables and connections daily. There is something to be said for watching each other’s back when an accident or incident can result in an electric shock. ‘Low-voltage’ should never be misunderstood as ‘safe-to-touch’, an understanding Real First Aid instructors are eager to impart in Provide First Aid in an ESI Environment (UETTDRRF10B).

For electricity supply industry workers whose occupation is centred on Low Voltage (LV) panel cupboards and cables, Perform Rescue from a Live LV Panel (UETTDRRF06B) is an essential training component. Although fatal accidents rarely happen, life-threatening danger is always nearby when working with electricity, so knowing how to save yourself and your workmates from danger is the number one skill.
