Would you KNOW what to do? One of the most important things any parent could do for their children is to learn first aid. The difference between an accident and a tragedy could be your preparedness to act.
For work or play, the Australian bush is an increasing destination for many people. Standard First Aid assumes medical help is no more that 60 minutes away, in the bush help can be hours or days away, being prepared can save a life.
Why should you learn First Aid - "I didn't KNOW what to do!"
Most First Aid is performed on loved ones by loved ones.
Everyone should learn First Aid, even just some basic first aid techniques. With our active lives and frequent travels you never know when you might be called on to use them – it could be at home, at work, at school or on holiday, it could be a family member or a friend.

“Thank you so much for your organisation and presentation of the CPR training. This is the most positive feedback we have ever received for CPR training.
It was also the most enjoyable session of our Professional Development day and this is thanks to your delivery and persona.“Jasmine Bulman
KNOW What To Do provide Remote and Wilderness First Aid training on our jointly run Wilderness First Responder courses. It’s very hands on scenario based training held outdoors with realistic injuries and equipment. The training is no nonsense, professional and fun with complex topics explained without the jargon! Students are supported but challenged and the passion and knowledge for this level of First Aid is obvious from the trainers.Martin Worth

“Having attended many first aid courses, I can highly recommend this one. The trainer kept us all engaged throughout the day, was professional, patient, knowledgeable and I learnt things that I had not been taught before in a way that was memorable.
Even though I hope I never need to use my first aid skills in the future, I feel confident that I have been well trained, would now know what to do and be able to respond effectively.”
The trainer was awesome! Excellent delivery, very informative, fun and a perfect pace. I learnt so much and now feel so much more confident that I would know what to do. Thank you!Maria Craeger
What First Aid Course is best for Me?
Learning the skills that are relevant to your workplace, family or recreational situation are important if you really want to KNOW what to do. This will help you decide which course is best for you.
CPR & Provide First Aid
Can be regarded as the entry level course that meets most workplace requirements providing a good grounding in First Aid. It is also meets the workplace level 2 Australian standards for the workplace first aider.
However the training assumes you are in an urban environment where definitive medical care (the ambulance in most cases) is no more that 30 – 40 minutes away. The agreed definition is that over 30 minutes is regarded as ‘remote’.
Remote First Aid
This is where definitive medical care is more than 1 hour, but less than 24 hours away due to distance, transport, communication, weather or access. It is important to understand the impact on your location and the access to the casualty on this. If the nature of your work or recreation means that access to you is delayed, you could easily be in a situation where you might have to manage a casualty for more than an hour whilst the ambulance or paramedics make their way to you.
Wilderness First Aid
This is where definitive medical care could be 24 hours or more away. You will learn the skills to enable you to manage a casualty and a group in a remote or wilderness area and to manage an emergency situation for a protracted period of time. If you are leading an expiation or group we would strongly recommend taking a qualified paramedic with you.
Wilderness First Responder
