Premium Health believes every student 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.
Some of the topics covered in provide first aid are:
- The DRSABCD action plan and responding to emergency situations
- Managing unconscious casualties, infants, children and adults
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), infants, children and adults
- Using a defibrillator (AED)

- OHS/WHS legislation (First Aid Codes of Practice)
