Local First Aid Training Classes

First aid and CPR classes have changed a lot over the years. Previously they focused on trying to have first responders diagnose a range of acute medical trauma-related clinical conditions. The focus was on to much analysis that invariably leads to the fear of failure and paralysis.

We have taken a logical common sense approach to prehospital and emergency care that asks you to respond to what you see. This is why we are the premier provider of accredited first aid training,  CPR training and childcare workers first aid courses and certificates in the Northern Rivers, Richmond River, Clarence Valley or Tweed River areas.


Local CPR Training Classes

Latest Technology CPR Training Manikins

1st Aide CPR Courses online

We use the latest Hi-tech CPR manikins that give amazing LED visual feedback when you get the CPR compressions just right. These dummies are anything but dumb. They have LED lights that react to the CPR steps you perform. As you hit the right depth and pace of compressions the forehead lights up.

I was sceptical of their use in training but they have proven to be a big hit with our CPR refresher classes because you can see straight away how effective your CPR really is. This animated visual tool assists in memory retention and fascinates everyone because you can now see the blood flow to the brain with effective chest compressions and CPR.

You can still connect an AED and learn to use it in defibrillator training with these amazing resuscitation manikins.

In a world first, for CPR Manikins, these Brayden CPR Dummies have won the iF design award for the Medicine & Health category in 2016. It really is a well designed, and functional quality CPR training product.

 Paramedic Education and Services

If you want to become a paramedic International Paramedic College provides Paramedic training, supervised and supported clinical placements, paramedic education courses and event medical services around Australia and the world.

Our Unique “Freedom From Fear” approach

We have a unique “freedom from fear” systematic approach to treating patients that helps you understand the whole picture, have a simple first aid plan to follow so you see the “sum of the parts” and allow you to confidently treat patients effectively, free from the fear that can overwhelm you.

Our “freedom from fear” approach to training is centred around mentoring our learners to help others, free from the fear that they might make things worse, helping them understand the “why and how”.

This approach was developed by clinical experience as intensive care paramedics and clinicians at the cutting edge of emergency medicine, paramedic and first aid training.

 Primum non nocere – “First do no harm”

Is an approach as old as medicine itself, first do no harm to the patient. It means so much more to us. It is about creating the sort of business and environment that really helps and not hurts.

International Paramedic College has evolved following over 30 years experience at the forefront of pre-hospital care and education. We have transformed the way first aid and pre-hospital care is taught, bringing a precision, a focus and a unique perspective, setting new and higher standards and challenging the industry to step up and really deliver a better quality holistic clinical learning experience from educators with real and extensive clinical experience.

Given the right training and a mentoring supportive approach, we believe every student can reach their potential and gain the trust in patients to deliver confident care. Unlike others this is not just talk for us, it is our essence, it is what we are. Your learning is about more to us than ticking a box, it is about creating a different way for you to view things after your time with us. 

Community Emergency Medical Services

We are committed to the community we work in and to make a positive difference to people’s lives. We actively support many local organisations and share our time and knowledge. What we can do, we do.

We are powered by hard work, focus, determination and a solid commitment to the caring professions. We are always accessible to our students and will go out of our way to provide follow up and support services.

We respect ourselves and others, recognising individual differences and valuing the diversity of experience and opinion. We are all about building professional competency and personal confidence not just compliance and sales target driven.

Our attention to detail is unrelenting and we will deliver what we promise as we strive to build trust and loyalty with our students and in our business relationships.

Our core focus is developing exceptional people, today and into the future. Nurturing not harming.

First Aid Kits and Supplies

We often look for a checklist of items for our kits or buy one that is custom built for a specific purpose like workplace or car first aid kits. While we have a full range of first aid kits and supplies that we are able to sell online and deliver to you, we take a different approach.

We have developed 0ur “25 essentials first aid Kit” has everything you need in a medical emergency and nothing more. It includes the amazing emergency bandage to control bleeding and manage wounds. Our CAT tourniquets and Setopress bandages are amazing

We sell Automatic External Defibrillators (AED). They are small, portable easy to operate lifesaving medical devices designed to deliver an electrical shock to a person who is in Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). We can give specific tailored training and support for a range of first aid products, ambulance and paramedic supplies.

Price Guarantee

International Paramedic College guarantees not to be beaten on price and we do that without taking shortcuts on the quality of what we do, because we are proud of what we do.

If you are quoted a lower price elsewhere, for the same training course we will match or beat that price and we believe you will be getting “real” professional paramedics doing the training, as a bonus.

 For workplace or group training at your facility, please contact us with the details of the price you have been quoted. We will match the price, and book you into our course.

Payment by credit card at the time of booking will be necessary.
