More About This Course
Your trainer will be either a nurse or a paramedic - there can be no better trainer than one who has "lived" the experience. As a trusted health professional, they will teach the 'why' of first aid and are committed to you leaving your course with confidence and competence.

Our Provide basic emergency life support training will help you manage and care for a person in cardiac arrest and teach you the skills of life support (correct ratio of rescue breathing to chest compressions) using the Premium Health Method. It will also teach you the management of life threatening conditions such as heart attack, asthma, anaphylaxis, bleeding and shock.

Premium Health believes every participant should have their own manikin - this means there is no waiting around for "your turn". Learning is best remembered by "the doing", this means the more time you actively spend time on the manikin the greater the retention of the skill, so when you may need to recall how to do CPR, you are more able to recall and perform the skill.

People over the age of 14 years are eligible to attend. Students attending the course are required to demonstrate their physical ability to perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin placed on the floor. This is a requirement of the unit and not of Premium Health. If you are unsure of your ability to demonstrate this requirement please contact us on 1300 721 292.





I have been in the Police Force for 23 years and never in my career have I ever experienced such a knowledgeable, engaging and friendly first aid instructor than I have today. I have also never felt so confident and competent in my ability to administer first aid as a result of today’s training.
