How to?

Welcome to the ‘How To?’ page.  One way to keep your first aid training skills and knowledge refreshed. Here you'll find some of the most common adult, baby and child related first aid conditions, recognising symptoms, covering suspected injuries or illnesses.  



Staying on top is the only way

Having gained life saving first aid practical skills and theoretical knowledge, with a certificate to prove your competency is a significant achievement. Maintaining those very skills and knowledge you’ve worked hard to master has shown to potentially diminish over time without frequent practice, whether in a controlled or an unfortunate real life scenario.  


Fortunately, many resources are available to stay on top and remain confident in your ability. The very same air of confidence present on the successful completion of your training.  Plethora of trusted information is readily accessible on the world wide web at the tip of your fingers.

Referencing your first aid manual on a regular basis or highly recommended is undertaking a short Annual Refresher online or classroom-based practical training are other alternatives.


Time is a valuable commodity in an emergency first aid situation and utilising such references regularly is a valuable asset and maintaining a naturally positive attitude.
