In one sense, first aid is understood as assistance or treatment delivered to someone who is ill or injured, prior to the arrival or medical professionals. Although this definition still holds true, the role of trained first aiders has expanded, in some case emulating professional medical intervention using the same techniques, equipment and devices. In other words, the capacity of first aid to save lives is greater than ever before, and with Real Response guidance, the skills can become lifelong attainments to be proud of.

Fortunately, most people don’t face low-frequency, high-risk emergencies often. However, when things go wrong and people need assistance, it’s important to have someone on hand to deliver life saving procedures. First aid contains scope for helping in any emergency situation, and with health and safety increasingly in demand around Australia, the attainments are more valuable than ever. When delivered by highly qualified and capable Real Response instructors, the knowledge and skills become second nature, ready to be called upon whenever required.

Are accredited first aid qualifications necessary?

Emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time, and a fast response can make the difference between life and death. Although it’s true that some help is better than none at all, the value of trained first aiders shouldn’t be underestimated, particularly when lives are at stake. For example, a person suffering cardiac arrest will be benefited by chest compressions performed by an untrained bystander, but the chances of survival are greatly improved with the addition of properly regulated compressions, airway management and other essential techniques. With the addition of a portable automated external defibrillator (AED), survival rates are dramatically improved.

Appropriate first aid qualifications are expected in many industries, such as the electricity supply industry, where danger is not far away. In addition, most progressive employers expect a percentage of their workforce to be trained in first aid to satisfy workplace health and safety guidelines. First aid qualifications are a great way to expand workplace responsibilities, achieve promotion, or even establish an entirely new career where first aid skills are prominently displayed.


Is the Provide First Aid course available in Sydney?

It sure is. Provide First Aid (HLTAID011) is one of the most popular first aid training courses, and a Real Response specialty. It provides a comprehensive introduction to progressive first aid procedures that save lives every day, and when the course is delivered by Real Response professionals, the attainments are deeply learnt and ready to be applied whenever required. Provide first aid can be learnt in only one or two days of dedicated training, with certification lasting for 3 years prior to a short refresher course. Course attainments include:

  • Provide CPR to an adult, child and infant
  • Automatic external defibrillation (AED) training
  • Provide artificial respiration
  • Shock and anaphylaxis training
  • Head and spinal injuries
  • Environmental injuries
  • Bandaging

What does the first aid CPR course in Sydney include?

This is another essential foundational course for first aiders. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is possibly the most recognisable life saving procedure used by medical professionals, paramedics and other emergency response personnel. Provide CPR (HLTAID009) takes only 3.5 hours to complete, offering nationally accredited certification that lasts for 12 months prior to a refresher course. The small investment in time and money is rewarded with confidence to assist in major emergency situations where a timely and effective response is essential for survival. Course attainments include:

  • Provide CPR to an adult, child and infant
  • Provide artificial respiration
  • Responding to an unconscious person
  • Two-person operated CPR
  • Automatic external defibrillation (AED) training
  • Communicating in an emergency
