I just addition to completing the course in aquatic rescue, I was trained and drilled in the techniques of providing first aid and CPR. My appreciation of these skills was increased and made me realise how important it is to know what to do in an emergency, not only for the safety of my children and grandchildren, but also for them to know if something was to happen to the grandparents. I regularly swim with my grandchildren at the beach and pool, and the satisfaction/confidence of knowing I can handle any situation is a great feeling. Since completing this training I have looked into having all my immediate and extended family participate in first aid training, which we aim to do in the near future. One avenue that is worth looking into is enrolling in the free CPR course that Training Aid Australia offers. The online training course is easy and simple to follow as long as you have an internet connection. The online CPR course provides information, questions and practical tutorials to help guide you through the process of CPR in the event that you ever needed to use those skills. This is one of the most useful skills that I have learnt in recent years and would recommend all parents and grandparents to undertake this training for the comfort of knowing what to do in an emergency.
I wanted to say that I thought the course was very useful and perfectly pitched for the audience. I jinxed myself though when I said to Stephen “I hope I never have to use the knowledge I gained today”. When I got home (early for a change) my three year old son stood up on a stool behind me apparently so he could get on my back. Before I could tell him to get down I saw his legs fly up in the air and he came down on the wooden floor on his head. There was a bit of blood but he didn’t black out, and it was quite deep. I grabbed a dirty tea towel (no they did not tell me to do this in the course but it was handy) and applied pressure to the back of his head. We went to the doctor a few doors down and he said he needed a stitch so we spent most of the rest of the evening in emergency at the Children’s Hospital. They actually glued his head and he was fine. The best thing was that although worried I was quite calm as it was covered in the training and I knew exactly what to do about it. Your training course was excellent and Stephen is a credit to your organisation. Thanks very much.
On behalf of Westpac I would like to thank you for Training Aid Australia’s help with the evacuation exercise last Friday. We would not have been able to do it without your help to facilitate the safety of our people. The exercise for us was a success and we have again benefited with a lot of good learning and feedback as a result. The young lady you treated, visited her GP and recovered fully over the weekend – she has no lasting effects. She passes on a special note of thanks. Thank you again – you and your teams involvement and efforts are greatly appreciated.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the training over the 2 days. We all found your instruction and manner to be exceptional and I have recommended to the school that they consider using you for future training in a whole range of courses. Thanks again.
I’ve been meaning to email you to say thanks for a great course a couple of weeks ago. Just wanted to give you some feedback as to how much I enjoyed the Apply First Aid course. As a trainer myself in a volunteer and professional capacity it was a pleasure to have you training me as I found you articulate, engaging and well timed in the delivery and explanation of the course content. People often ask me where they can do their first aid training and I certainly won’t hesitate in recommending you as their trainer and will direct them to Training Aid Australia to book their course. Thanks again for a great course.
Thank you for your assistance today at our accident. Fortunately no one was injured, except for some shock experienced by Scarlett. Your re-assurance helped in the mayhem of the moment, and was appreciated.
Hello, I just wanted to personally give thanks to Fran, who was my first aid trainer….on the 26th of July. The skills and knowledge she taught me help recognize the signs and symptoms of a patient with diabetes who needed glucose tablets, warmth & reassurance. Kind regards.
