First Aid Courses

Home > Brisbane > Courses
Published January 10th 2011
Accredited first aid courses teach participants how to react in a situation when someone is hurt, and how to provide aid until a medical responder arrives. A first aid course only takes a few hours to complete but could end up saving someone's life. Many workplaces respond favourably to employees who hold a current first aid certificate and you may be able to claim the costs on tax.

There are many different first aid courses available in Brisbane. These are some of the most popular.

St John's Ambulance offers a range of courses, from the popular Apply First Aid (formerly known as Senior First Aid) and Perform CPR (formerly Resuscitation), to more work specific courses like Low Voltage Rescue Principles. Training is also offered in Mandarin and there are specialised courses for the hearing impaired and for those living in remote areas.

First Aid International is a nationally accredited organisation offering eight accredited courses and two extra areas of competency. There is no workbook or online component, as FAI believes in an entirely hands on approach to first aid. Prices range between $55 for a CPR course, $160 for a Senior First Aid course and $500 for a First Aid in the Workplace course. FAI also offers recertification.

Brisbane First Aid offers the standard CPR and Senior First Aid courses but also offers instruction in more specialised areas such as Asthmas Awareness and Anaphylaxis. Participants can choose from three venues; Kippa Ring (Redcliffe Training Centre, Peninsula Fair Shopping Centre, 272 Anzac Avenue) on Monday, Thursday and Saturdays, Toowong (Nautilus Scuba Centre Training Room, 58 High Street) on Tuesday s and Wakerley (Dive Dive Dive Scuba Centre Training Rooms, 20 Ingletston Street) on Thursdays.

A few hours and a couple of hundred dollars could one day mean the different between life and death for a stranger, a co-worker or even someone you love.
