First Aid Certificate Training

First Aid Certificate Training

  • Dungog NSW 2420 Australia

First Aid is back - and we're running one of our rare "two-weekday evenings" classes. Some people find the evenings more convenient than our Saturday classes.

The next one is soon but there's still time to book in.

Learn all aspects of routine first aid, to a certificate standard. What’s covered: CPR for adults and infants, fractures, sprains, burns, control of bleeding, responding to heart attack, asthma, snakebites and exposure, and much more. All led by experienced district local Sonja Medcalf (Registered Training Organisation Parasol Ltd).

A First Aid Certificate is now considered mandatory for many jobs – but above all, it’s the knowledge of what to do when the worst happens.

Looking for re-certification? You can renew your current certificate by doing the same class without doing the preparatory first part, for a lower price.

Can you renew just your CPR component? Yes. Some jobs require annual renewal of the Provide CPR component of the First Aid course. We offer that option. You need to be there for the first night only.

When:  Tuesday 13 & Wednesday 14 June 2017, 6.30-9.30pm.

Where: Daycare Centre, Hospital Rd, Dungog.

Cost: Provide First Aid $165; Provide First Aid Re-certification $140; Provide CPR Re-certification $75.

Accreditation level: HLTAID300.

To book, click here.

PS we've postponed our other First Aid on Sat 3rd June till later in the year.

National Reconciliation Week

  • Australia

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs annually from 27 May – 3 June. These dates mark two milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey: The 1967 referendum and the historic Mabo decision, respectively.

In 2017, we reflect on two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey – 50 years since the 1967 referendum, and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision. As we commemorate these significant milestones, we ask all Australians to be a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey.

The theme for #NRW2017 is ‘Let’s Take the Next Steps’.
