  • 20,000 Australians a year die from Heart disease including heart attack and angina (ABS 2012). 80% of cardiac arrests happen at home….if you ever need to give CPR its likely to be someone you know.

  • We all have busy lifestyles. Accidents occur when you least expect. At home, at work, playing sport, in the car. Are you prepared for every eventuality?

  • Most workplaces require trained first aiders by law to provide a safe environment. Adding a nationally recognised skill to your resume may be the difference to gaining employment.

  • When accidents happen they are often witnessed by people who have a fear, anxiety or even panic.

    The skills taught in first aid will help you be composed, confident and self assured

Best first aid course I’ve ever been to. Chris Steele, you’ve done it! you managed to turn one of the most mundane subjects into a one day ticket to the comedy festival! Fantastic learning environment! Thanks a lot!

I have nothing but praise for Fiona from the First Aid People. Last night she ran a Newborn First Aid session, in the comfort of my own home, for me, my husband, and our immediate family (altogether 8 people).

The session was informative, fun, interactive and very useful. Fiona made us all feel at ease and answered all of our questions (and we had many!!!).

I would highly recommend this service for parents, and families with bubs.

Thank you Fiona for a fun and informative first aid session for infants. The convenience to have had this at home is a great service. We all feel confident with what we learnt today. I would definitely recommend The First Aid People and it was a real pleasure to meet you.

Attended my First Aid training with Chris this week -A BIG THANK YOU!! -What in the past has been dull and dry training (have done First Aid several times with other schools) was anything but. Chris made it relevant, fun and interesting whilst being well organized and genuinely enjoying his work. This made for some real learning that actually sunk in! An excellent teacher- HIGHLY RECOMMEND : )

The Club were also the lucky recipients of a CPR course that they won in an online competition organised and donated by The First Aid People
Chris Steele from The First Aid People delivered the course along with additional Defibrillator training on Tuesday evening.
We would like to thank Chris for a fantastic and informative evening and it’s great that the Club now additional members with certification in CPR. We would thoroughly recommend having The First Aid People deliver it’s courses at your Club or organisation, its well worth considering the benefits holding such a course can bring.

CPR Refresher & Full First Aid with Chris is hands down the best way to learn. Saturday morning course last week for the Team from House with No Steps in Melbourne – I was there for the CPR Refresher segment and spent the whole two hours laughing and taking it all in – Serious topic delivered with humour that makes it easy to understand and learn. Could not recommend more highly. Thanks so much Chris you made “working” on a Saturday enjoyable
