First Aid

First aid is an important skill in the Australian Army Cadets, and in life. You will never know when you may be required to assist in an emergency situation. In the Australian Army Cadets you will have the opportunity to participate in recognised First Aid training. This includes learning how to administer first aid in a water and bush based environment, dress wounds, make saints and stretchers, and fully understand the procedures and steps involved in taking control during an emergency situation.

All recognised first aid courses and techniques are conducted by a fully qualified first aid instructor. Some cadets may also have the opportunity to obtain recognised training in the form of a St John First Aid Certificate.
