In November 2019 the Queensland Government implemented changes for ongoing training for licensed bodyguards and crowd controllers.

In addition to the standard first aid that is completed during the initial training of guards, Advanced First Aid (Provide Advanced First Aid HLTAID006) must be completed every three years. This two-day course extends basic first aid skills to include additional training such as major bleeding control with the use of tourniquets and hemostatic dressings, patient extraction, ongoing patient assessment and more. This course will also update annual CPR requirements.

Paradise First Aid offers both public and onsite training across the Gold Coast and South East Queensland. For further information and public course dates, click here.
