Vietnam has a shocking fatality rate on roads and in homes and workplaces. Over 50,000 on roads alone in the past few years. Drownings, heart issues, poisoning, bites and burns.. so many areas where people die or have acute pain and trauma. BUT.. basic first aid can prevent so much of this loss of life and physical pain. It is basic knowledge. You can gain these skills.

Heart Reach Australia offers businesses, companies, sports or other entities a three hour course in your own facility, for groups up to 35. Available dates contact email.

usually $50 per person, including bi lingual booklet and certificate, AUSCHAM members are $40.  A group up to 35 is $750 inclusive. (The best option for training)

Book quickly.. limited available days apply.  Transport to your location is additional.

Details are as follows:

The course is comprehensive, and covers all aspects of emergency first aid, CPR, and medical or common issues and conditions. It is very much ‘hand on’.. everyone gets involved, so people are invited to come in casual attire, shorts etc. and expect to learn how to handle most common, and some not so common, medical or trauma situations.

The course covers First Aid principles.. the basic 5 steps that underline every situation.. and these are practiced throughout the program. Inclusive in this is accidents, resultant injuries internal and external and response procedures; Dealing with unconscious patients. Responses and corresponding actions; Trauma in all aspects.. primary re head injuries and on through limbs and internal; Shock; electric shock; smoke inhalation and fire response actions; Heart attack; Choking; Bleeding; Diabetes and similar medical issues; Drowning and responses; CPR (Very much hands on!) in ALL Bleeding.. nose; teens and women; trauma; epilepsy; allergies; burns and scalds; accident response as both onlooker and one involved; electric and chemical burns; bites and stings; current global snake and venomous bits treatment; poisoning, impaling and puncture wounds.. etc.

These are a general list of what is covered. Each on site course will assess risks, look at a  ‘typical scenario’ situation, potential causes, responses, dangers, and the steps needed.. people have the opportunity to respond as they think best.. and we then give the best case scenario that should be followed in that situation. Progressively, we cover all the above.

The three hour program is intensive. Because everyone is doing something, the time usually goes fast. Time is always allowed for questions and follow up during the session..and we finish up looking at what people have in their homes, vehicles, and work situations re First Aid kits.. what could be added.. what can be used if these are not available in any given emergency.. etc. The goal is to have people informed, confident, & prepared to deal with most emergencies adequately.

There is NO written exam.. the program is done so people understand what is being taught.. and are capable of doing it themselves. There IS an individual assessment throughout, to facilitate a certificate on completion.

Each participant will have a complete First Aid Manual in both English and Vietnamese.

Kind regards;
