The capability of first aid responders to assist victims and save lives is greater than ever. Technologically advanced first aid equipment means trained first aiders now have emergency response abilities comparable to paramedics and emergency medical stall. With improved capability comes greater responsibility, so Real Response was established in 2014 to deliver skills that can be accurately replicated during actual emergencies.

We believe in the best possible course outcomes for trainees, and our expansion to Sydney for delivery of courses that include Provide Advanced Resuscitation (HLTAID015) has been warmly welcomed.


What Is Advanced Resuscitation Training?

Advanced resuscitation techniques are applicable in wide ranging emergency situations. Provide Advanced Resuscitation (HLTAID015), previously known as ‘Oxygen Training’ showcases progressive life saving techniques using portable automated external defibrillators (AEDs), adrenaline auto-injectors, oxygen equipment and more. When training is delivered using simulations that mimic real emergencies the techniques become second nature and are ready to be called upon whenever required.

Genuine life-saving skills previously found wanting due to a disconnect between training and real life are at the forefront of Real Response course delivery. Employers, industry experts and course graduates strongly support simulation based first aid training that is revolutionising the way Australians approach emergencies. Provide Advanced Resuscitation in Sydney offers important training components for application in diverse fields of employment, including:

  • Health Care and Nursing
  • Occupational First Aid
  • Medical Service First Response
  • Correctional Practice
  • Aviation Rescue

What are the Advanced Resuscitation training techniques?

The elements and performance criteria of this nationally accredited course are the foundation of the most well-known first aid emergency response procedures. Course participants develop the skills and knowledge required of the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) for responding to complex and life-threatening situations in community and workplace settings.

Real Response course facilitators and instructors guide newcomers to first aid through progressive stages of development, from beginner to advanced, over the space of 7 hours of enlivening training.

Course participants are expected to have completed Provide CPR (HLTAID009). Oxygen, suction and airway adjuncts are introduced alongside CPR in this course. You will also learn pulse oximetry and the use of oxygen therapy masks. The Advanced Resuscitation (HLTAID015) certificate is valid for 1 year prior to a short refresher course to ensure qualifications are up to date.

Advanced Resuscitation (HLTAID015) is for everyone, although you will need a reasonable grasp of spoken and written English. At Real Response, we keep class sizes small and manageable, allowing our dedicated instructors to guide every student with personalised instruction to ensure the knowledge is understood and the skillset is ready to be applied the moment training is complete. If you have a passion for learning and a desire to step in and help save lives when no one else can, Advanced Resuscitation training may be the best move you ever make.

Although the course focuses on resuscitation techniques, the procedures are often used in tandem with CPR and other first aid interventions, and your team can learn at a convenient location of your choice anywhere in the Sydney CBD or suburbs. It’s certainly possible to rise from an absolute beginner to become a qualified and capable first aider when guided by some of Australia’s best first aid training professionals.

We aim to help you reach your full potential as a trained first aider, and open up a whole new world of opportunities for employment and career progression, all while making Australia a safer place for everyone. Here are some major advantages of first aid training delivered by Real Response.

First aid knowledge saves lives

Emergency situations are usually unexpected, requiring timely first aid intervention. A trained first aider has greater potential to save a life than an untrained bystander, including the skillset and knowledge to proceed with confidence.

Empowering primary care givers

We all age at different rates, so being on hand to assist an ailing spouse or loved one can help keep the family together. As a trained first aider, you will become acquainted with procedures for rapid emergency response and techniques for ongoing pain relief. First aiders are a crucial link in the chain of survival, and It’s worth understanding that the majority of life-threatening incidents occur in domestic situations where the life you save could be a partner, child, friend or parent.

Encouraging a healthy approach to living

‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ is a well-known proverb with obvious first aid implications. Emergencies often involve dangerous elements such as live electricity, toxic substances and unfamiliar territory, so keeping everyone safe and healthy (including yourself) is a high priority. Without attention to personal safety, your ability to assist others may be compromised, so we make sure you learn how to keep yourself safe while assisting those around you.

Confidence and personal growth

The transformative potential of Real Response training is exceptional. Our course facilitators and instructors are the best in the industry, with a dedicated desire to empower first aid newcomers with life-saving capabilities. Course graduates gain nationally accredited attainments, wide-ranging skills, and the confidence to approach an emergency situation when no one else can.

Comfort and security

First aid provides the tools for loved ones to care for each other and stay together. With established headquarters in Sydney and Melbourne, and reach all around the city and suburbs, Real Response is on hand and ready to assist. Training is provided in-house, on-site and at public training locations, allowing everyone to experience the benefits of being in safe hands at all times.

Safety for all society

People are social, often gathering in large numbers for special occasions and events. At these times, it’s essential to have trained first aiders on site for rapid emergency response, and your capability as a qualified first aid officer is sure to be appreciated.

Accidents and emergencies can happen to anyone at any time without discrimination. Progressive first aid knowledge is crucial and includes dramatically improved equipment, procedures and techniques. There is no better time than the present for commencing first aid training.
