No one can predict when an accident or other emergency will happen. That’s why the response time in a first aid incident is critical. If you have the skills and knowledge to react quickly, calmly and effectively – you can make all the difference.
Interlink’s first aid training gives you the skills to apply effective treatment procedures in emergency situations. Learn to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.
Look at the importance of calm and accurate communication, the right information to provide to emergency services and to evaluate your own skills and limitations.
We also offer specialty training for the electricity supply industry to give you the confidence to deal with the additional risks of a live, electrical environment.
