Nationally Accredited Courses

The first aid training revolution, supported in no small part by innovative Real First Aid simulation training, is gaining momentum. Real First Aid was established to close the divide between first aid training and genuine ability to respond to low-frequency, high-risk emergency situations where a fast and confident approach is essential. Real First Aid training provides superior knowledge retention using immersive learning techniques delivered by some of Australia’s best paramedic and medical first aid CPR trainers, all with many years of experience responding to emergencies and saving lives.

We believe every individual has the ability to make a difference in the lives of friends, family, colleagues and even complete strangers, and our nationally accredited courses are the ideal means of achieving that goal. It’s understandable that some people are uncertain of their ability to respond effectively in an emergency, so we take the time to assist every course participant in reaching their full potential. Nationally accredited first aid courses are now essential training components in many occupations where safety is a high priority, and Real First Aid Simulation Training, or ‘learning by doing’ means that course participants are equipped with knowledge, skills, and first-hand experience the moment they complete the course.
