Who We Are

Leading First Aid provides up to date, realistic and enjoyable first aid courses. Whether you’re a new parent wanting to feel more comfortable with the safety of your newborn or need to teach your employees first aid in the workplace, our health care professionals will educate you on how to stay calm and confidently administer the most effective first aid.

what we do

Applying first aid is not just about neat bandaging. While we do show you all about bandages, splints and their uses, we are realistic about what you will have available when the going gets tough. We will explain what needs to be done and how you can improvise when that beautifully stocked first aid kit just happens to be in your other car. We are passionate about teaching the most current and relevant techniques and love sharing tricks of the trade. We strive to keep our training interactive and with as little paperwork as possible.

where we teach

We are based in the Mid Western Region and offer monthly community first aid classes in Mudgee including sessions focused on infant and child first aid. We are one of the leading first aid education providers for businesses and offer corporate training outside of the Mid Western Region by special arrangement.
