Real First Aid Staff and Instructors
There are several components that make Real First Aid stand out from the competition. Our simulation based first aid training methods are an obvious feature that is transforming first aid training methods in Australia. Another reason for our success is the determination to bridge the gap between basic knowledge assimilation and genuine first aid response capability. Underlying all our success and achievements however, are Real First Aid’s greatest resource of all; our highly trained, expert, and committed Real First Aid staff and instructors.
Students of any subject will agree that even the most interesting and exciting subject matter can become as dry as a dog biscuit when knowledge is imparted by an unenthusiastic tutor and delivered in monotone mumbles. On the other hand, boring material can be made interesting if the teacher is animated and enthusiastic. So, you can imagine the effect of life-changing first aid and CPR skills taught by industry experts using enhanced simulation training techniques. Our course participants become enlivened, engaged and excited to share their training journey, and confident to put practice into reality should they ever face a genuine emergency.

What skills are learnt in first aid courses?
As you can imagine from the above list, our courses provide a comprehensive approach to first aid training. Real First Aid instructors are multi-skilled individuals who appreciate the increased emergency response capability of teamwork. That’s one reason we apply enhanced simulation training techniques in our courses. With simulation training, formerly only used in military, paramedic, police and medical training, our students are absorbed into realistic life-and-death situations requiring a timely emergency response.
Our style is catching on, with Real First Aid simulation training spreading from Melbourne to Sydney, and employers couldn’t be happier. At last, they have genuinely trained first aiders on standby, ready to act at a moment’s notice to save lives. Even introductory course attainments at Real First Aid can make a huge difference in emergency response, while also developing character and confidence in our course participants. For example, Provide First Aid (HLTAID003), one of our foundational courses, imparts knowledge and skills that include:
- Provide CPR to an adult, child and infant
- Airway management and artificial respiration
- Automatic External Defibrillation (AED)
- Respiratory emergencies including anaphylaxis
- Management of bleeding plus bandaging
- Soft tissue injuries
- Head and spinal injuries
- Strokes, diabetes and seizures
There are a lot of skills learnt in only 1 or 2 days of training, providing an indication of just how easy the techniques are to learn when knowledge is imparted by Real First Aid staff and instructors. With Real First Aid, the attainments remain fresh until time for renewal of qualifications, providing a consistently high level of emergency response.
