Real Response course attainments are highly regarded by employers and other training organisations. First aid credentials are an asset for any resume, while first aid and CPR knowledge is retained and ready for use in case of emergency. First aid skills are useful in all occupations, as accidents and injuries can happen anywhere and fast action is the difference that saves lives. Real Response was established to introduce all Australians to a first-aid skill-set that can be used in any emergency, and Occupational First Aid is an important component of making Australian workplaces safer.
The word is spreading, and Occupational First Aid courses are now integrated with many higher-learning training packages and qualifications. Awareness of first aid and CPR attainments has spread from health, nursing and social services to broader community and industrial applications, with Real Response simulation training playing a significant part. Progressive workplaces and community spaces are designed to facilitate the health and well-being of employees and visitors, and the addition of qualified first aid practitioners ensures a much safer environment for everyone to appreciate.
