A first aid course will cover an understanding of what is going on, which in turn will direct what needs to be done and more importantly what does not need or should not be done. Even more importantly the knowledge and understanding allows you to manage a situation calmly. This calm approach provides one of the most important benefits of first aid, reassurance to the patient. The value of reassurance cannot be overestimated. As your pulse rate slows down so does that of the patient and everyone around.” Professor Hugh Grantham (as cited in Mckie 2011)
Here at The Job Shop “Training and Assessment delivered on behalf of ALLEN’S TRAINING PTY LTD RTO 90909”, we have been delivering the Nationally Recognised First Aid & CPR courses for over 30 years both as public sessions and in-house training for general public, early education centre’s, schools, councils, Queensland Rail, Local and State Government companies and private companies and many more.
With our qualified & experienced trainers, we’ve been able to teach the required practical skills and knowledge to our participants in areas of first aid response, life support, management of casualty(s) & the incident and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation*. With instruction and practical training in line with legal, workplace and community considerations, Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and other Australian national peak clinical bodies.
We all hope we never have to perform CPR to a person, however, there may be a time and it’s best to be confident within yourself to embed confidence in others.
Is it time you get trained? The Job Shop “Training and Assessment delivered on behalf of ALLEN’S TRAINING PTY LTD RTO 90909” has courses running weekly for your convenience at our training centre’s, on work sites and at community venues.
*During COVID some modifications to the assessment criteria were relaxed by the regulators. This has now been revoked and therefore from September 2022, all course participants enrolling into First aid and CPR training will be required to demonstrate 2 minutes of CPR and rescue breaths on a manikin as part of their practical assessment
