First Aid and CPR Training Courses in Brisbane
Get Your Certified 1st Aid and CPR Training from F.A.S.T. First Aid Training
As a business owner, you have a moral and legal obligation to make sure that your employees have a safe place to work. The most efficient way to get a first aid certificate in Brisbane for all your employee is to schedule an onsite training session at your workplace. Some businesses are reluctant to choose this model, though, because they think it means pulling their employees off the floor and away from their tools for two or three days at a time. These businesses often opt to send their employees out of the office for training one or two at a time.

Specific first aid requirements vary from one workplace to the next. Your business’s compliance burden depends on your industry and the level of risk inherent at your workplace, among other factors. However, there’s no doubt that every business can benefit from having a staff that has good training in basic first aid procedures and CPR. At F.A.S.T. First Aid Training, we provide courses in Brisbane to help businesses meet their compliance requirements and establish safer workplace strategies.
Simplifying CPR Training in Brisbane
Asking one or more of your employees to obtain a CPR certificate in Brisbane is often easier said than done. While CPR is an undeniably valuable skill, CPR courses are often incredibly dull. CPR instructors have a bad habit of filling out their training sessions will long, uninteresting stories that have limited clear relevance to the students who they are teaching.
At F.A.S.T. First Aid Training, we take a different approach. We design our courses in Brisbane with relevance in mind. We like delivering our courses as workplace training sessions, for several reasons. First, by focusing on a single workplace, we help that business achieve compliance more readily. We can work with you to understand your company’s risk factors and compliance factors. We can then design a CPR/first aid course that makes sense given those requirements. Finally, it’s always better to deliver detailed first aid and CPR training to multiple employees, rather than to rely solely on one or two employees who know CPR. What if both of those workers are out of the office on the same day an emergency strikes? What do you do then? Providing the same training across your entire organisation is a smarter and safer plan.
The best part of delivering CPR training in Brisbane to specific businesses is that we can tailor our curriculum to suit those businesses. One of the things we always say about our teaching model is that we won’t bore our students with long, dull and irrelevant stories. Instead, we go the extra mile to ensure that our training is specific to your business and your industry. By altering our curriculum to incorporate contextualised scenarios and examples, we not only provide training that is more interesting and engaging to your employees, but we also deliver practical training that will be easier for your team members to apply if an emergency does occur.
F.A.S.T. First Aid Training: A Better Way of Doing First Aid Training in Brisbane
The problem with a ‘one at a time’ first aid training schedule is that keeping track of everything is difficult. Making sure you have enough certificates to be compliant, or keeping up with CPR refresher courses, are things that businesses hate doing, and for a good reason. Monitoring this stuff takes time and effort while failing to follow it closely enough can lead to costly compliance mistakes.
At F.A.S.T. First Aid Training, we offer a better way of doing first aid training in Brisbane. We focus primarily on onsite training, which means we will come into your workplace and deliver our training on the premises. Unlike many of our competitors, though, we are conscious of how our clients feel about this kind of arrangement. We know how costly it can be to pull employees away from their work for even a single day of training, let along the better part of the week.
For this reason, we aim to offer a 1st aid course in Brisbane that delivers its information in a more concentrated dose. First aid training doesn’t need to take 2-3 workdays. It doesn’t even need to last for a whole day. On the contrary, these sessions tend to take so long because the instructor doesn’t stay on message. Too often, first aid and CPR instructors go off on long tangents, wasting time on dull stories that don’t have any real relevance to the client, business or industry at hand.
At F.A.S.T. First Aid Training, we try to maximise the relevancy of our lessons. If we’re doing a first aid CPR course in Brisbane, we’ll take the time to learn about the client’s specific risk factors and then tailor our lessons to include relevant stories or scenarios. Not only does this approach result in more focused and time conscious training, but it also gives your workers tools they can actually use to save lives.
