This is why we love what we do! We hope that everybody who attends any of our courses feels comfortable practicing their skills and walks out feeling confident enough to provide first aid in any setting! If they don't, then we haven't done our job!

This is some feedback that we received from one of our courses today! :D

"The best First Aid training I've completed. Pre-course training was very thorough and easy to follow, which provided adequate grounding for the pre-course exam. The face-to-face portion was one on one which made for way better learning than in the group setting I was expecting. The trainer was exceptional; great with people, very informative, and matched my learning style. I was never bored or overwhelmed. 5 stars. "

💫12 months ago today we delivered our first course! We cannot believe where that time has gone! 💫

Starting up during a pandemic was not easy, but we are so thankful with how far we have come already! We have thoroughly enjoyed travelling around the region teaching First Aid and CPR to a number of different people and organisations.

During the last twelve months we have;

🩺Trained over 150 people in First Aid and CPR
🚘Travelled from Warragul to Orbost and everywhere in between
💰Purchased more training equipment
🌐Published our own website
📚Developed our first non-accredited training course
⚡Launched our Community Defibrillator Program

Over the next twelve months, we are planning bigger and better things! New courses, refined delivery and you may even see some new faces delivering our courses! 👥

To us, the impact of having an AED is obvious. The lives that can be saved by simply having such a device available is immeasurable. Of course, in the real world, we understand the cost of a defibrillator can be a barrier to having them readily available within our communities. That's why this year, we have decided to do something about it.

In the coming weeks, we will be announcing a new program that aims to support not-for-profit and community groups to own an AED and have it readily available for use within their community - boosting the availability of defibrillators in an effort to improve survival rates for cardiac arrest!

Stay tuned, we are very excited! 😁

It's good to be back! After a small break, we are wasting no time getting back into delivering training!

We have spent the morning on the Banksia Peninsula, near Paynesville, delivering CPR and First Aid! We are thankful to have had the opportunity to provide training to such a great group of people! 🙌

We love getting out and about, so if you're looking to refresh or learn new skills, be sure to get in touch and we will do our best to accomodate your needs! 😄
