First Aid

First Aid is exactly what it says:

  • the initial response in assisting someone that is injured or ill with the intention of preserving life
  • preventing further harm
  • promoting recovery
  • relieving pain
  • protecting the unconscious, until medical help arrives.

You don’t have to be a surgeon to provide first aid to an injured person, however you just have to have a basic knowledge of what to do in the event of an accident causing injury. For example, this knowledge may be as simple as knowing how to carefully clean a graze and apply a bandage strip, to applying a tourniquet in the event of a shark attack to control life threatening bleeding.

Just about anyone can apply a Band Aid or some Elastoplast over a minor cut but it takes training to gain the knowledge to effectively provide first aid in life threatening situations.

Why you should train in First Aid

Many people freeze when confronted with serious injuries because they have no knowledge of what to do. Yet in many situations simply applying pressure to a bleed may be sufficient to reduce or stop blood loss and prevent a person from going into shock.

Likewise, shock is a life threatening and knowing how to recognise this condition and the correct first aid techniques to apply may prevent further injury or death.

For instance, if you are a machine operator, a surfer or just anybody, knowing how to apply the correct first aid such as an improvised tourniquet may save somebody’s life in the event of an amputation or uncontrollable bleeding.

Should you work in the agricultural sector, landscaping or enjoy bushwalking what would you do in the event of a snake or spider bite? Certainly, knowing the correct first aid procedure and how to apply a pressure immobilization bandage may save a life.

Whether treating a burn with cold running water and a non-stick sterile bandage or saving a choking child knowing how to provide first aid correctly is something everybody should know.

First Aid Training may save a life

Moreover, Australia is home to some of the most deadliest creatures in the world from the Inland Taipan to the Irukandji.

In 2019 there were 13,919 recorded road accidents in New South Wales. As a result, 353 persons died and 17,195 suffered minor to serious injuries (Transport NSW Centre for Road Safety).

As a road user knowing how to provide first aid may improve your confidence. In other words you can assist in a serious accident that may prevent death or reduce serious injury.

In short, learning to Provide First Aid with Prudent Training Services will improve your knowledge and boost your confidence to assist others in their time of need. Our training is conducted in a relaxed environment by trainers with a vast knowledge and experience in providing first aid in many situations.

Training and Assessment conducted in partnership with Allens Training Pty Ltd RTO 90909. 

The need for a significant proportion of society to be competent in First aid is clear and obvious; the need to save life and minimise the effect of an accident or illness can occur anywhere at anytime, so the benefit to society and to your workplace of having properly trained and certified First Aiders is considerable.

At Prudent Training, we deliver training in First Aid from our venue in Penrith, but if you have a minimum of 4 students, we can come and undertake the training at your location in Sydney for no additional cost. Pre course learning can be delivered online, but face to face time is required as part of the final assessment.

Course durations do vary, but you can expect to spend a minimum of 1.5 hours of face to face assessment up to 3.5 hours depending on the course undertaken. After successful completion of your CPR or First Aid training and assessment at our Penrith venue you will receive a nationally recognised certificate. Assessments include a practical demonstration of the skills learnt at our Penrith venue or your work location. When undertaking your CPR assessment you will be required to complete a minimum of 2 minutes un-interrupted CPR on an adult manikin on the floor followed by the demonstrated use of a defibrillator (AED).

Our training is nationally recognised and our trainers, who are all appropriately qualified and working with children vetted, keep abreast of developments within first aid training to ensure that you are guaranteed the best and completely up to date training.
