Workplaces require Trained First Aiders, Sports organisations need them, Child Care Centres Schools require special training in Asthma , Anaphylaxis and First Aid .
Electricians require training in Low Voltage Rescue and CPR .
Mines have Specially Trained Rescue Squads with specialist training to an Advanced Level
The most common cause of death in Australia is Cardiac Arrest from heart disease, the defintive care is normally Early DeFibrillation with training it is very simple .
Learning to recognise the Symptoms and Signs of Medical Conditions can save lives, this combined with appropriate First Aid is the winner

The major influencing factor in a quality course is the skills and knowledge of the presenter, their ability to convey this information in an easy un complicated manner.
No one group of Professionals has more exposure to Pre Hospital Care than Paramedics, from a basic to a very advanced level, therefore a course conducted by a Paramedic with good presentation skills would ensure the ultimate in First aid Training.
Most courses have a government code and in summary these are:

OTHER INFORMATION WE UTILISE FIRST AID ADVANTAGE AS OUR REGISTERED TRAINING ORGANIZATION RTO 32273 Common Questions: Why choose this course? It is estimated that over 90% of First aid training organizations do NOT have trainers that have a background as a full time Ambulance Officer /Paramedic / Medic conducting the course this can even apply to the major organizations This means the trainer may not have the skills or clinical education as a frontline professional to convey timely clinically accurate information

Fitness to Participate:
First Aid Courses are far less physically demanding than they used to be but you will need to actually contact other people to practice the basic skills for example bandaging cpr simulation lateral position etc. If you are not comfortable with this perhaps do the course with a family member or partner Your mobility: The national standards are that you are to be able to do CPR on the floor for 2-4 minutes, I am very flexible with this for example if you have a bad knee or back on the day then we will look at options. It is imperative that you notify me if you have any physical or emotional disabilities that limit your ability to perform If you have any learning disabilities then it is your responsibility to bring along a person designated by you to assist with this section of the course We occasionally use real life graphic scenes videos etc to enhance the course this is First aid which includes trauma If on the day you are asked to do an activity and you feel you cannot speak up EARLY
Punctuality: Try to arrive at least 15 minutes early to organize the paperwork If allocated breaks please be punctual to return on the time frame allocated Return your paperwork fully completed on time If your paperwork is difficult to read or incomplete Shirley will have to contact you if you are slow to reply then this will delay your certification process
After the Course: We will do our best to get the certificate to you as soon as possible If you have not received your certificate within a reasonable time frame You should have your certificate within a week maximum By the way legally it is up to 20 days for a certificate issue Due to the impatience of people or poor planning most RTO s are trying to get them out faster than 20 days
Remember that your official certificate is E mailed to you this is your original treat it as such If you find you have lost your certificate and e mail or phone us weeks or months later saying you did not receive your certificate we will go through our data base and search the E mails if it is confirmed that we in fact did send you one then a re issue fee of $30 will apply for a certificate We do hundreds of clients a month and occasionally we do miss certificates for this we apologize Many of our clients have the course paid for by an employment agency business company In this instance we are not obliged to release the certificate directly to the participant unless requested and mutually agreed by training centre hervey bay and the organization
The release of the Certificate is only on the completion of the course terms part of that is full completion of payment for the course We occasionally out of goodwill pre- release the certificate to the organization or participant
Course Content; We present many options for the course content Including the Australian resuscitation Council International Liason Committee on resuscitation Queensland Ambulance Service 30 years as a Medic /Ambulance Officer / Paramedic / Diver Medical Technician Master SCUBA Instructor 35 years
Summary; First aid training is very easy and informative with the practical component being the most important part and the easiest However due to the ever encroaching bureaucracy into training the documentation is the major cause of delays and issues These organizations include: The Unique Student Identifier AVETMISS Enjoy the learning of First Aid which we hope you will never need but be so glad you knew if you had to be in the situation Please make sure the paperwork is completely filled in so there are no delays Glenn and Shirley Bowman
