A life-saving skill set

According to the Red Cross, less than 5% of Australians are First Aid trained. Providing a first aid response to an emergency health situation (such as a heart attack) within the first ten minutes can dramatically increase the patient's chance or survival. The majority of accidents occur in the home or workplace, and having First Aid skills makes you an essential part of any workplace team. Update your skill set with a First Aid course today.
