Want to know what separates us from other training providers?
At ACTWell First Aid Training our vision is to provide the Canberra community with the best quality First Aid Training experience at an affordable price.
Our main focus is on taking the fear out of first aid and filling you with the confidence to help someone in an emergency rather than simply being a bystander waiting for emergency services. Because doing something is what saves lives.
Our training always comes from people with real life experience in First Aid and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation situations to provide validity and support the information we supply our clients.
We have a proven track record since 2011 of providing this quality training and saving lives. Almost every course that we run, we receive feedback telling us that “this was the best course we have ever attended”, and we want this high standard to continue to be upheld. We have been contacted on a number of occasions telling us that our training has helped save someone’s life! These real life successes are a result of our philosophy... Early Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation saves lives!
We use quality training resources and provide an interactive learning experience that doesn’t leave our clients bored and wishing they were somewhere else. We use real life examples and scenarios to achieve our engaging learning environment.
These are the things that separate ACTWell First Aid Training from our competitors, and we strive to maintain them while offering an affordable price. We are the BEST First Aid training provider in Canberra.
Hi my name is Adam, and I am a former high school teacher here in the ACT. But for the past 4 years I have been working in the emergency services. I have also been involved with Surf Lifesaving Australia since 1998, as a volunteer and a professional Ocean Lifeguard.
I started up ACTWell First Aid Training in 2012 after attending several serious First Aid instances with emergency services and realising there was a real need to inform the public about the importance of early Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation! Having attended a few cardiac arrests I am all too aware that most of the time, bystanders don't start Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation early enough. So with some experience under my belt and a background in education, I thought I should help spread the word, and that is when ACTWell First Aid Training opened its doors.
Since we started up I have provided training for over 2000 people from all different walks of life. I have developed professional training partnerships/relationships with schools, doctors surgery's, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, security companies, child care centres, government departments, and swimming schools just to name a few. Now there is a team of us, and we are all really passionate about providing quality first aid training at a great price, and that is why so many of our clients keep coming back to us. I hope to see you in of our courses soon.
Ben - Director/Instructor
Hi, my name is Ben. I have had an interest and a passion for first aid for the past fifteen years, throughout which time I have worked in a multitude of first aid roles, both professionally and as a volunteer. I have worked as a surf life saver in Australia, as well as a pool lifeguard in the United States. For the past six years, I have been employed in the ACT Emergency Services in a role that requires both a theoretical and practical knowledge of first aid, as well as teaching first aid to other employees.
I have been working as an ACTWELL First Aid instructor since 2014 and love values that make up this company. I enjoyed working here so much that in 2016 I became a Direcrtor and Co Owner. I strongly believe there is a necessity to educate the public on the importance of early and effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Having attended many serious first aid incidents with the ACT Emergency Services, I am well aware of the benefits of having bystanders that are both willing and well trained to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. I am passionate about providing quality first aid instruction in a fun and engaging way, instilling people with the required knowledge and confidence to enable them to use it in real life situations. I have recently completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Education, and have worked in the ACT public school system for many years as a teacher’s assistant. I look forward to continuing to teach within my capacity as an ACTWELL First Aid Instructor.
