Life-support training

Injury and sickness happen everyday in the community. While this may not always lead to an emergency situation, it is important to be equipped with the skills to provide first aid assistance.

TAFE SA currently trains over 4000 South Australian’s in First Aid training each year, a number which is continuously increasing.

Our TAFE SA First Aid students are trained by current Paramedics and Registered Nurses who continue to work in their industries. This gives our students the advantage of learning from health professionals who have current experience in dealing with emergency situations.
