1 days (8 hours)

$214.50 Inc. GST

This course is essential for everyday life, allowing you to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence required to provide immediate and effective first aid treatment to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury in the workplace or at home. You will develop the skills to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery.

Providing effective, lifesaving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training. This is especially true where it relates to potentially fatal illnesses and injuries, such as those that require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or involve severe bleeding. As with any training, ideally, training occurs before being confronted with an actual real-life situation.

The course is delivered in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and applies to all workers or members of the community who may be required to provide CPR in the event of an emergency.

It includes initial intervention in a casualty with a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while awaiting an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of other less serious conditions, such as applying water for burns or assisting someone choking.
