Have you ever been in a situation where a child or teenager or colleague at your school required urgent medical attention or was unconscious and required CPR? Did you have the knowledge and confidence to help them? Or did you stand back powerless and unable to save their life or alleviate their pain?
Children whilst in your care are your responsibility. As such you need to ensure that you have the skills and knowledge needed to step in and assist them, should the situation arise, until proper medical attention arrives.
We’re sure that you can see the point of keeping your First Aid and CPR qualifications up to date, particularly given vocation as a teacher, because children and teenagers are highly prone to accidents and illness and unfortunately an increasing number of children are suffering seizures, asthma and severe allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis to nuts and other food items.
FirstAidPro is a leading mobile First Aid Training organisation who offer specialised training for teachers and other school workers of all descriptions. If you would like to become a pro at First Aid, you need to talk to us.
The Queensland Government has announced that Queensland schools can now purchase Epipens for emergency administration. This is in addition to the prescribed Epipens. Our nationally accredited Apply First Aid course has met specific learning objectives for teaches to administer Epipens for life threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis).
Similarly, in Queensland, anyone wishing to purchase asthma reliever medication for First Aid purposes must have successfully completed an Asthma Management Course. This is a 1 hour stand alone course or it can be incorporated into our Nationally Accredited Apply First Aid Course. Our Asthma Management Course satisfies SA Health ‘Specific Learning Objectives’ and each successful student receives a Statement of Attendance in Asthma Management (wallet sized card) which is accepted by pharmacists throughout South Australia.

My name is Jessica and I attended my Provide First Aid and CPR courses at Morphett Vale earlier today. I am leaving this feedback to commend your trainer (I think his name was James). He was absolutely fantastic! I have social anxiety which made me nervous to attend this morning, but I have walked out of my training session this afternoon with only appreciation. Your trainer made the course interesting, fun and comfortable - which isn't always easy in a classroom environment! I would very much appreciate it if this feedback made its way to James and if there is any way in which your organisation rewards positive feedback/excellence, I would love for him to be commended as he absolutely deserves it. I am not typically the type of person to send any feedback (positive or negative) but I felt compelled to make an exception in this case. I will be recommending your agency to others, and will be back myself in 12 months for my CPR refresher!
A huge thank you once again,
Just wanted to provide some feedback,
I found Friday’s session very good, the facilitator was great, he knew his stuff and made everyone feel at ease, most enjoyable. I have also received feedback from 1 staff person who attended at Salisbury and 1 staff member who attended at Hewett, both said the same thing, they really got a lot out of it.

I just wanted to give some feedback in relations to the three employees we sent to the Low Voltage Rescue & CPR course the other week in the CBD.
Our employees really enjoyed the interactive training and facility provided. All three took home something new from this day.

Did the First Aid and CPR course at Marion Hotel yesterday. The trainer was exceptional and learnt more about first aid than all my previous courses that I have attended. Very professional and interactive that provided confidence in doing the practical CPR and trauma bandaging. Recommend these professionals to anyone needing first aid certification. Cheers.
Please thank those involved within your organisation who assisted me in gaining this essential certificate.
The office team could not be more helpful and my instructor (John) was both entertaining and professional.
As a customer I received value for money and your service is exemplary.

Enjoyed class. Found informative & entertaining. Kept interesting with real life scenarios. Venue great. Completed in timely manner. It was quick, but all of the major points came across very well. I will definitely book with your company again and will recommend it to others.

Good time. Used as bonding session. Trainers real good. Love night option as would lose business if done during day. Offered his guys to pay for course if willing do in their own time. All accepted.
I really enjoyed the inclusive environment of the trainer from Firstaidpro. I was nervous about the course but I learnt more than I thought I would. I am going back to school feeling much more confident in my role as a 'First Aid Chick'
Great humour made for a great learning experience. Chris was a very considerate of my personal situation in the course which I was appreciative of. Thank you.
My thanks to Sharon McCulloch for the great job she did today with the Applied First Aid + CPR training that I attended today. The training was up-to-date, relevant and taught in an easy to understand manner. Kind regards Neil McKenzie, Plaza Hotel
