Apply First Aid
BARS Training Australia - The Public Safety Professionals

This program will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to administer first aid to a casualty who has sustained an injury or illness, until the arrival of professional medical help.   Our experienced trainers take a professional approach that not only delivers the necessary knowledge and skills to confidently administer first aid, but the courses are also structured in a friendly, fun and enjoyable learning environment.

 

Course Information

Whilst the theory and concepts of First Aid are covered in the course, the BARS Training Australia One Day Workbook Course focuses on the various practical skills needed to administer first aid. A workbook and manual is given to the client to complete prior to attending the course. This allows the client to study the theory at their own pace. Our One Day Apply First Aid course uses a very “hands on” approach where theory is learnt while performing scenarios relevant to the client’s industry. We use a theatrical approach to the role plays to make them appear very realistic. Mix and match games, group activities, video and PowerPoint presentations makes this course interactive and a very enjoyable learning experience.
