Emergency Responder Course - 
            Advanced First Aid and Resuscitation


Whilst general first aid training is good knowledge for those who may occasionally find themselves faced with an emergency medical situation, this course is aimed at people who are designated responders for a high risk environment or activity, and/or are expected to provide a higher level of care using specialised equipment and performing more advanced skills. 


This course is 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 oxygen, advanced resuscitation or advanced first aid in the event of an emergency, until the arrival of medical or other assistance.  

Providing effective, lifesaving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training.  This is especially true when it relates to potentially fatal illnesses and injuries such as those that involve cardiac arrest, severe bleeding, multiple casualty incidents etc. These situations carry a risk of further injury to the casualty and the first aider and it is imperative that training occurs to be able to know what to do when confronted with a real-life incident.

This course aims to develop the skills and knowledge and most importantly the confidence, to coordinate and manage the response, and provide advanced first aid in a challenging environment, in order to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery. 


Participants attending this course will develop the skills, knowledge and confidence required to provide an emergency response and use specialised equipment for those in need of resuscitation, in a range of complex situations, including community and workplace settings. Participants will also learn how to monitor and handover the casualty to medical professionals for further care, and how to maintain resuscitation and oxygen equipment.
