Almost every Australian understands the importance of first aid for responding to accidents and emergencies. However, the ability of the average Australian to respond appropriately in assisting casualties remains at unacceptable low levels. The situation is exacerbated in our major cities including Sydney, where busy lifestyles dictate other priorities and first aid attainments are overlooked. The situation is untenable to Real First Aid training experts who are dedicated to changing the mindset and overhauling first aid course delivery using innovative solutions.
Since late 2014, when Real First Aid was established, the industry has undergone a revolution, thanks to simulation based training; a successful Real First Aid training initiative. Prior to the foundation of Real First Aid, the attainment of a first aid certificate didn’t necessarily translate into genuine emergency response capability. In fact, although 26% of Australians had completed a CPR training course, only 4% were confident of using the procedures correctly in a genuine emergency. Real First Aid simulation training, or ‘learning by doing’ has changed the dynamic by offering realistic emergency response practice even during training, resulting in graduates who are emergency-ready the moment they complete the course.

What are the benefits of completing a first aid certificate in Sydney?
First aid attainments offer individual and collective benefits that are hard to beat. Real First Aid courses generally only take a day or two to complete and offer life-changing results. Our course graduates flourish, developing leadership and communication skills along with the ability to respond appropriately to accidents and emergencies. First aid and CPR training competencies empower people with a sense of pride and self-worth that can’t be imitated. Knowing how to respond during low-frequency, high-risk emergencies is empowering, and the thanks from those whose lives are saved is the real reward.
Are the first aid certificates nationally recognised?
Real First Aid training certificates are nationally recognised, providing accreditation held in high esteem by employers and industry experts. In fact, first aid training is often a pre-requisite for employment in many industries, including:
- Health & Community Services
- Childcare & Aged Care Services
- Hospitality & Tourism
- Transport & Logistics
- Forestry Occupations
- Sports, Recreation & Fitness
Regardless of your occupation, first aid qualifications provide superior opportunities for employment and promotion. They are favoured by employers who appreciate multi-skilled workers, and dedicated first aid officers are now part of the fabric of Sydney society. Front-line responders in situations where health and safety are significant priorities are encouraged throughout Sydney.
