Of all life-saving first aid and emergency response procedures, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is the most recognisable. However, although approximately 26% of Australians have CPR training, barely 4% are confident of delivering the procedure correctly in a real emergency.
These statistics are simply not acceptable to a training organisation dedicated to bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and genuine response capabilities, making Level 1 First Aid With CPR delivered by Real Response a smart life-saving move for you or your team.
What is CPR?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a well-known lifesaving technique used in emergencies such as heart attacks and near drownings, where a person’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped. CPR can keep oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and vital organs for up to 10 minutes, or until medical professionals arrive and definitive medical treatment can be provided to restore normal heart rhythm.
It’s important to learn CPR properly to give a person the best chance of survival, and Real Response was established by education and paramedic professionals with a desire to deliver the best training possible. CPR can be performed on adults, children and infants, and is easy to learn thoroughly in only a few hours of dedicated training.
What does a Level 1 First Aid course cover?
Level 1 First Aid training is the ideal counterpart for CPR training. When Provide CPR (HLTAID001) training is combined with Level 1 First Aid, also known as Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002), course participants experience deeper learning, superior knowledge retention and the ability to recall the life saving procedures immediately.
Level 1 First Aid provides essential CPR procedures and a whole lot more, including:
- Responding to an unconscious person
- Artificial respiration and airway management
- Communicating in an emergency
- Shock and anaphylaxis response
- Applying bandages and management of bleeding
- Anatomy and physiology of respiratory and cardiovascular systems
- Understand the basic principles of Automatic External Defibrillation (AED)
How long does a first aid certificate last?
Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (Level 1 First Aid) is a nationally accredited qualification that lasts for three years. Provide CPR (HLTAID001), also nationally accredited, provides certification for one year. Renewal of certification is conveniently achieved with short refresher courses at Real Response, Australia’s favourite first aid training organisation.
