I completed a course online and found the materials very relevant and the assessments were marked very quickly so I could move onto the next assessment item within the same day.
Response from the owner: Hi Nancy, You completed our mental health first aid unit called CHCCCS019 Recognise and respond to crisis situations. I am so glad you enjoyed it and the practical things you did were so well done. Thanks for your kind words.
Your name: JULIACompany/Organsiation: Marine Rescue Port DouglasCourse Location: OnlineRating: 4.5Review: This was a great Course and I learnt heaps from it. I needed to upgrade my First Aid skills as we will doing medivacs on the rescue vessels.I looked at a number of courses but being in far north Queensland there are not many courses available in my area. I originally was going to do the Certificate 2 in Health Care, but after talking to the staff at the College I found that I could do the Certificate 3 completely online. The price was also attractive, as it was considerably less than other Colleges. Many of the practical sessions are completed by video, which was good. The units are well written, very informative and easy to understand. I really enjoyed this course and learnt a great deal.
Response from the owner: Hi Julia. Glad you enjoyed the Cert III in Basic Health Care, and thanks for sharing your experience with others. Our paramedical units are written by us with a pure paramedic and prehospital care focus. I am really proud of them. Thanks for taking the time to say such nice things. I truly appreciate it. Craig Nolan

Thoroughly recommend this mob. The facilitator, Alan, not only was professional and highly informative but he made the day fun.

I have done so many cpr and first aid courses over the years but this was, by far, my favourite. I attended a Ballina class and the teacher was really great - very engaging and funny and just made re-learning the content easy. Thanks for making this day go so quick and effortlessly.
Response from the owner: Hi and your name is such an important aspect of learning first aid, Ist rule is always calm yourself down and let the common sense come through so Settle Petal is probably a great way to think about it. Thanks for taking the time to give us a pat on the back. We appreciate that so much.
This was a great course! It was comprehensive and time efficient and I left the course feeling safer, knowing that I am now more capable to handle an unexpected situation. Jay was our teacher and she was fantastic! She was very knowledgable, taught well and allowed us to have breaks throughout the day. Highly recommend.

Excellent course for CPR and First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting. I was very impressed with the high quality of instruction, thorough and extensive course content delivered by instructors in a very professional, caring, sharing, eloquent and patient manner. I was looking for an excellent First Aid refresher course and the International Paramedic College in Lismore was a great choice for my First Aid training.
Response from the owner: Hi Renee, Thank you for your comments about your positive training experience and great delivery by our trainers. We look forward to seeing you back in one of our many courses.
Absolutely amazing course, couldn’t recommend it more...the Instructors made me feel a lot more confident about the possibility of having to carry out my training in an actual situation+ even in COVID times we were able to use the manikins that show blood flow to the head with led lights which makes the entire experience a lot more rewarding as we could get a realistic feel for What it takes to successfully carry out cpr !! :))

Thourough and excellently presented training. I found it simple and easy to understand.

Response from the owner: Thank you for your kind words about our First Aid training in Lismore. It is always pleasing to hear that you recommend our training.
Such a great course. Easy,fun and informative learning. Having the option to read up and answer some of the questions online due to covid19 restrictions gave me confidence before I went into the classroom setting. Lisa is a fantastic teacher which helped put me at ease and ready to learn. If one of my loved ones,friends, or a stranger needed first aid, I am so happy to know I can be of use and assistance. Thank you Lisa and the International Paramedic College
Response from the owner: Jessica Thank for your kind words about your first aid training with International Paramedic College. We really appreciate you taking the time to give Lisa a pat on the back. She does a great job Thanks again
What an incredible day. I have done this year upon year but I really felt like today I had a deeper understanding of the best way to administer first aid and CPR. The trainer was able to easily apply my knowledge and skills in a childcare setting too. I loved our teacher Fabricia, she was great.
Response from the owner: Thanks for your Kind words Ellie. We really appreciate people taking the time to share there experience in learning first aid with us. Childcare first aid is so important, kids are not smaller adults and i am so proud of Fabricia and her ability to make first aid easy to understand
As always the material and course were great, both Craig and Lisa did a fantastic job. Due to COVID we broke into smaller groups which was great and I commend you for being intuitive during COVID. Thanks again for a great course.
Response from the owner: Thanks Deidre We have made a few changes to the way we Deliver first aid training in our new COVID normal world. Glad to see you back again thanks so much
Having passed a few First Aid/CPR courses, it‘s the first time I really feel confident assisting people in need of immediate emergency care. The Instructor explained everything very clearly at a good pace and I appreciated the practical exercises. Highly recommend it!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the kind words Sibylle. We really try to get you confident that you can have a go at First Aid. Its great to hear you feel that way.
I attended my CPR training in Mullumbimby on Saturday and I just would like to say a big Thankyou to the Trainer Lisa. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and made the overall experience great. I’ve attended many first aid training sessions in my life and this was definitely the best.
Response from the owner: Thanks for your kind words about our first aid training at Mullumbimby. Lisa is a great trainer and we are so proud of her
This was the most interesting First Aid course I have attended. There were multiple short videos, props, anecdotes, floor cards and projections. Very professionally delivered and being able to do the questionnaires online was very helpful.
Response from the owner: Glad you enjoyed the online option for first aid training. I think it allows you to relax and get so much more out of the training. So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for your kind words
Fab was great, super helpful and knew what she was doing. It was the best First Aid course I've ever done! Thanks
Response from the owner: Hi Kim I am so happy to read your kind words about first aid training with us. Fab is a great trainer. We are so proud of her. Thanks
Thank you “Fabi”for a fantastic day of training - your knowledge and delivery of content is fantastic. Very clear message when trying to understand the foundations of CPR and First Aid. Thankyou
I found the First Aid training very interesting, engaging and informative. Fabricia gave a lot of encouragement and made us aware how important it is to step out of your comfort zone and just do what you know in the emergency situation, that can save someone's life. I feel like I know a lot more about what to do and how to deal with a life threatening emergency. Thank you Fabricia, enjoyed the day learning the course, very well delivered.
This was the best First Aid training I’ve ever done - engaging, informative, lots of different learning styles were catered for and our facilitator Lisa was very passionate, energetic and experienced. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Highly recommended! Everyone should do this course! Craig really makes learning fun and easy! I feel much more confident I could deal with an emergency!
what an amazing trainer you are Craig. my son and I learnt so much from you and your training style was so easy to understand.Thank you for your time today.
I cannot reccomend to do this course enough. Craig was amazing at what he did and made sure all area's of worry were met. He opened my eyes up to alot of things and simplified it all. I would 100% reccomend to do this course as in a short period of 3hours it was amazing how much I learnt.
Thankyou very much!!
I’ve done the First Aid training course 3 times. Today, I’ve had the best one. Thanks Serge, don’t retire! Will want to do it with you next time! 🙌🏽🙏🏼
Amazing ways of teaching! Will come back for all my training!😁
Very good First Aid presentation that is lively, entertaining and gets the points across in a way that is easy to understand and take away with you, instilling confidence. Caring support staff and friendly operation in general.
Best First Aid and CPR Course ever, thanks Serge, very informative and entertaining.I highly recommend this training.Thankyou Serge, as a nurse of 35 years, I learnt heaps.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day working with you through the first aid course.My family were in stitches that night when I relayed some of your stories! They especially liked the one where your mate had to 'eat out of his ear and wipe his bum out of his eye!' And if you want to know more about that story you will just have to do the first aid course with Serge, the master cookie to find out what happened! Thanks for your time. It was really worthwhile and I have a renewed confidence should I be faced with helping someone in need. Kind regards Natasha Ball
The trainer was very knowledgeable in his content and willing to explain to each member of the class. I highly recommend this training facility
Great day today with Serge, this was my third first aid training course (with different providers) and by far and away the best. It was engaging, interesting, well paced and wonderfully delivered by Serge who's wealth of knowledge and experience is always evident. With a little humour in the mix it's an easy 10 from me. Thank you for an excellent day!
High praise for Serge, he kept us entertained with stories from his two decades of experience as a regional paramedic while teaching us good effective ways to keep someone going until the professionals get there. I feel confident that I not only know what to do in an emergency to keep myself safe and the patient calm, but how to also help the paramedics take over when they arrive.
The best first aid training I have ever attended, and I have attended many.
Definitely the provider to choose if looking to do a first aid course.
If i was a Tasmanian it would be three thumbs!!!! it was up totally engaging and interesting the best 1st aid course i have ever done , Well worth the every cent < and a top bloke too .
