Saving lives is a responsibility we can all share. Real First Aid was established to make life-saving emergency procedures accessible to all Australians, for the benefit of everyone. Real First Aid training includes simulations that mimic real-life emergencies, empowering students with confidence and ability to respond effectively when critical situations occur. First aid qualifications are highly regarded by employers, with comprehensive courses such as Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002), introducing students to a wide range of first aid emergency procedures.
First aid certification is a serious commitment as well as a valuable attainment. Any reluctance to develop first aid ability is overcome by Real First Aid initiatives that result in deep learning of emergency procedures. ‘Learning by doing’ is the pro-active way to develop first aid knowledge that can be applied when the need arises, and Real First Aid is the Australian leader in first aid simulation instruction. With greater knowledge retention, appropriate emergency responses become natural, while leadership and an emergency skill-set are at the ready.
Real First Aid Emergency Procedures
First aid procedures are varied, with each medical condition requiring a specific response. Real First Aid instructors role-play with course participants in emergency response team-building exercises, providing genuine insight into the knowledge and solutions required during emergency procedures. First aid emergency procedures taught by highly-qualified experts are genuinely life-saving, and include first aid for burns, choking first aid and seizure first aid.
First aid knowledge is essential, and it is also extremely easy to learn from experienced emergency services personnel. Accredited first aid courses are thorough, with a lot of extremely important procedures investigated and experienced. Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (formerly Level 1) is an example of the Real First Aid learning dynamic in practice. Real First Aid emergency procedures training encompasses nationally accredited first aid attainments related to critical injury situations that include:
- Responding to an unconscious person
- Airway management
- Cardiac emergencies
- Respiratory emergencies
- Shock and Anaphylaxis
Emergency situations can happen anywhere at any time, and a fast response is required in life or death situations. When students practice first aid emergency procedures using simulations, genuine experience develops along with confidence, and much greater knowledge retention is the outcome.
‘Learning by doing’ – Emergency Procedures
Simulation training is used by emergency services and the military to strengthen theoretical and practical knowledge related to their occupation. At Real First Aid, simulations can be tailored for industry-specific requirements using actors and props for a realistic affect. Realism is further enhanced by students using professional emergency equipment while managing visual cues, emergency sound effects, and role-playing team members. Simulated emergency procedures include:
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Defibrillator training using professional equipment
- Simulated smoke for fire emergency procedures
- EpiPen training for treating anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction)
- Bandaging to treat bleeding, sprains and wounds
Life saving techniques such as CPR involve a few simple steps that can be mastered by anyone. Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) and EpiPen procedures are equally easy to learn, and valuable skills worth understanding. Real First Aid instructors are involved in the learning process, with individual student guidance always available. Attaining a government accredited first aid certification is a rewarding experience at Real First Aid.
First aid certifications are life-changing and life-saving. A solid first aid foundation is acquired, with knowledge ready to be used in the event of an emergency. Along with academic attainments, course participants are instructed in the use of technologically advanced emergency equipment used for performing emergency procedures. There is no substitute for real experience, and Real First Aid simulations are a safe and comprehensive method of learning all important first aid emergency procedures.
