BASIC LIFE SUPPORT

FOR ENQUIRIES CALL 

First Aid Courses in Brisbane will help you to develop skills and knowledge and most importantly, confidence to recognise and respond to life-threatening emergencies while awaiting an ambulance.

Providing effective, lifesaving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training.  This is especially true where it relates to potentially fatal illnesses and injuries, such as those that require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or involve severe bleeding. These procedures carry a risk of further injury to the casualty and the first aider.  As with any training, it is more useful if training occurs before being confronted with an actual real-life situation.

You will develop the skills to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery.  It includes initial intervention techniques such as performing CPR, as well as the first aid treatment of other conditions, such as administering an autoinjector, or asthma medication, or assisting someone choking.

Our Brisbane first aid courses are delivered in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and applies to all workers or members of the community who may be required to provide CPR in the event of an emergency.

This first aid course is essential for everyday life events, allowing you to provide immediate and effective basic emergency life support to workers or others who have been injured or become ill at the workplace or at home.
