first aid & cpr training

First Aid training is an essential component for yoga teachers in Australia and a mandatory requirement for membership to Yoga Australia. This course is conducted by First Aid Alive (FAA); a Registered Training Organisation specialising in First Aid/CPR/Advanced Resuscitation and Defibrillation.

FAA has highly qualified, experienced facilitators who deliver interactive, scenario based learning that makes learning easy to remember and enjoyable.

In accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Council’s new and revised resuscitation guidelines First Aid Alive has embraced new procedures and has introduced updated teaching materials.

Professional development is an integral element of training, allowing both facilitators and participants to be up to date with the latest ideas and procedures in the industry. Recently, First Aid Alive delegates attended the European Resuscitation Council in Norway and the Australian Resuscitation Council, Queensland Conference, reviewing scientific evidence for new procedures and the reason for change.
