“A first aid course will cover an understanding of what is going on, which in turn will direct what needs to be done and more importantly what does not need or should not be done. Even more importantly the knowledge and understanding allows you to manage a situation calmly. This calm approach provides one of the most important benefits of first aid, reassurance to the patient. The value of reassurance cannot be overestimated. As your pulse rate slows down so does that of the patient and everyone around.” Professor Hugh Grantham (as cited in Mckie 2011)

Here at Australian Training Solutions, we have been delivering the Nationally Accredited First Aid & CPR courses for over 6 years both as public sessions and in-house training for schools and private companies. With our qualified & experienced trainers, we’ve been able to teach the required practical skills and knowledge to our participants in areas of first aid response, life support, management of casualty(s) & the incident and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The Apply First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years. The training also covers the CPR component. The Perform CPR certificate is valid for 1 year and it is highly recommended participants annually attend CPR training, not only for the skills and knowledge but most importantly, for the confidence in performing CPR. We all hope we never have to perform CPR to a person, however, there may be a time and it’s best to be confident within yourself to embed confidence in others.

Is it time you get trained? Australian Training Solutions has courses running weekly for your convenience!
