Advanced first aid capabilities are the result of progressive training. Course modules at Real First Aid act as building blocks that ultimately transform into overall competency to respond to any accident or emergency situation. Provide Advanced First Aid (HLTAID006), previously called Level 3 First Aid, establishes solid emergency response foundations in one course, and when the subject matter is delivered by Real First Aid professional instructors, the skills become deeply entrenched and ready to be called upon whenever required.
Provide Advanced First Aid in Sydney encompasses 15 hours of dedicated training, and all procedures are easily learnt and assimilated. Real First Aid simulation based training, or ‘learning by doing’ enables course participants to develop first-hand experience, where qualifications are ready for use the moment the course is complete.

How is real life scenario training delivered?
Simulation based training has been used for decades to train paramedics, the military and emergency medical staff. Real First Aid was established in 2014 to bridge the gap between first aid qualifications and genuine capability, and the results have been extremely encouraging. Simulation training can be delivered on site for enhanced levels of industry-specific training. Although Sydney is Australia’s largest city, emergencies aren’t commonly encountered by most people, so first aid training needs to be immersive and deeply learnt for best results. Simulation based training includes:
- Professional actors and props to bring out the best in course participants
- Genuine life saving emergency equipment use and practice
- Sirens, flashing lights, pyrotechnics and 000 calls
- Fake wounds, fake blood and other special effects for greater immersion
- Australia’s best course instructors to ensure practice makes perfect
