This course is taught by Emergency Medical Response professionals.
This course takes participants to a higher level of training and is designed to train First Aiders to manage patient care until the arrival of an Ambulance during complex incidents and emergencies.

“Why require a Provide First Aid certificate, and then re-issue it during the course?”
Our Occupational First Aid program is an in-depth first aid program. Students are required to be at a Provide First Aid level (or higher) to ensure we can impart all the required skills and knowledge in the time allocated. We choose to re-issue Provide First Aid because we cover these concepts during the course at an Occupational First Aid level. Because Provide First Aid has a validity of three years, our students have the benefit of having this certification re-issued, enabling three year validity.
I really enjoyed the challenge this course presented, being a two-week condensed course. Les was very knowledgeable and covered all aspects, answering all questions and making the content interesting. The group was fantastic, very friendly and eager to help each other, which made the course even more enjoyable! I feel I have gained confidence from both the skills I have learnt and the way we presented our portfolio training tasks to the group, something I was not looking forward to at the start but found I really enjoyed. Overall, a very professional organisation and well presented training package, well done!
