AHST First Aid in Schools Program
Research suggests that school aged students may be the only bystanders to an Emergency situation.
First aid awareness training in schools significantly increases basic life support knowledge and confidence.
The Australian Curriculum now reinforces the value of school-based First Aid Training within the Health and Physical Education ‘being healthy, safe and active’ strand. Furthermore, the Australian Resuscitation Council asserts that school aged students are effectively able to perform appropriate basic life support skills when attention is given to the context in which these skills are introduced and how these skills are taught.
Our AHST First Aid in Schools Program designs first aid and CPR courses to suit your school’s needs. All courses are fun, engaging & interactive to ensure maximum retention of life saving knowledge and skills. We offer Nationally Accredited Training to your school group as well as other tailor made solutions to meet your school’s needs.
