To assist with training, we often ask participants to wear a head-mounted Go Pro camera which films the simulation. These videos are raw and unedited, but give a good indication of the simulations, and can be useful for participants to review after their session. A selection of simulations are available to view below. Click on the icons to view the video in a pop-up window.

Simulation Based First Aid Gallery

The advantage of enhanced simulation based first aid training has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Real First Aid facilitators understood the benefit of simulation training from the get-go when the company was established in late 2014, and their desire to spread the word is contagious. Simulation training is a first aid and CPR training revolution in Australia, with Real First Aid quickly becoming an industry leader highly recommended by employers and industry experts. Simulation first aid training is here to stay and Real First Aid is leading the way.
Our simulation based first aid training methods are user-friendly and suitable for people of all ages. We encourage work groups, school groups, community groups and individuals to give it a try and experience the difference. Real First Aid embraces changes in the first aid training industry that increase life-saving potential for all first aiders. We also keep abreast of societal changes that attract the masses. For example, while most people use Go Pro cameras to take selfies and boast about their travels, we use the same technology to increase life saving potential. Check out our raw, unedited footage of real training exercises overseen by Real First Aid experts and you will get the picture.
