Australia’s no 1 corporate training provider

Have you experienced Australia’s no. 1 corporate training provider?

Genuine First Aid is difficult for the average trained person to do. Flashing lights, sirens, many other first aiders giving their advice, whilst your own adrenaline is going. How do we call emergency services? and what information do they need to know?

What if your building had an emergency? Loud alarms, people not knowing the way to exit the building safely. Our fire training course can give staff the life saving knowledge emergency procedures (PUAWER005B & PUAWER008B)

Learn the lifesaving skills to preform CPR, understand what may present in a heart attack. Help family and loved ones if they are having an asthma attack. Understand these and many more injuries and illnesses in a Provide First Aid course (HLTAID003).

Our trainers have years of experience being part of the emergency services, and you would enjoy the approach they take to teach these skills. Have you ever done a course before where you nearly fell asleep? We have, and that is why we make the training more engaging for the different learning styles. Want to know more? Contact us on 1300 475 093 or email info@affa.net.au

New Mile End Training Facility

Due to the recent closure of CPA Group Adelaide (formerly State Training Services) we have received an influx of requests for public training courses in Adelaide CBD. Australian Fire & First Aid are pleased to announce that they have secured the use of a regular training room at Santos Stadium (Netball SA) Mile End, with plenty of parking this easy to find iconic sporting location is sure to be very popular with our customers.

Please note that Australian Fire and First Aid are more than happy to assist any former CPA Group or State Training Services client with public courses in all first aid disciplines including Apply First Aid, Basic First Aid, CPR, Occupational First Aid & Remote first aid. We are also offering Manual Handling, Warden, Chief Warden, Extinguisher and Evacuation Training publicly.

Total Fire Ban affecting your training schedule?

South Australian businesses will suffer the inconvenience today of having scheduled fire training cancelled due to the total fire ban across the state, unless you are a customer of Australian Fire & First Aid. We are the only company in SA to provide digital fire training and therefore the only ones who can proceed with scheduled training on a total fire ban day.

Often it can be a logistical feat to coordinate schedules for any type of training, a feat that quickly turns to frustration should training be cancelled by your provider when it rains or becomes extremely hot like today’s predicted 40c weather in Adelaide.

Australian Fire & First Aid are the only providers of Weather friendly, Environmentally friendly, WHS friendly digital fire training in South Australia. With the use of our Bullex Bullseye Digital Training system, we can train indoors or out, using laser and or water extinguishers. No nasty chemicals, no C02 and no need to cancel due to bad weather.

Click HERE for more information on our digital fire training system or contact our booking team via email on info@affa.net.au

We hope our customers enjoy training in the air conditioning today, we know our staff sure appreciate it!


WHS laws finally passed in SA

For regular followers of our safety blog it will come as no surprise that harmonised Work Health Safety legislation has recently been passed in SA. Over the past 12 months we have maintained close links with Safework SA and have kept you up to date with the latest news, predicting several months ago that the legislation would pass during spring 2012 with an early 2013 start date.

WHS was finally passed as legislation last week on Thursday 1 November 2012 and will come into effect on January 1, 2013. We can only image that many business owners will be panicking at the thought of what the new legislation means for them, especially in light of the fact that penalties have tripled and for the first time can include a jail term for individuals who flaunt the system.


From the many conferences and information sessions we have attended on the subject to the experiences of our customers in NSW, NT and QLD, we can assure you all of a few things.

To ensure your business is on track to meeting the new legislation next year, the best place to start is right here with this article >   WHS how can I be ready? It is a no nonsense guide to preparing your business for the changes that are coming.


For those of you looking to engage new providers of safety services, training or buy new PPE to bring your company up to standards, ensure you are dealing with a reputable provider. We have become very aware in this country of fly by night businesses cropping up in industries for the short term to make a quick $ when the government introduces either a cash bonus or new legislative requirements such as  Solar Companies, Insulation Companies & restoration/building companies in flood/cyclone damaged areas. Our new online safety store (whsstore.com.au) is still under construction, however we have access to over 300 items of common PPE and safety equipment at below retail cost, please feel free to email us for a price if you looking for something info@affa.net.au


Personally my best advice is to know and understand the Australian Standards, industry requirements and other laws which govern your industry and be sure that you are compliant with what they require. Do not take the word of a provider; the onus is upon you to ensure you are receiving the correct information. One of the most significant changes to a common legislation that affects all businesses with premises that is either open to the public or employs more than 1 non family member is AS3745-2010 Planning for emergencies in facilities. The training requirements in section 6.1 of this standard have now become a requirement under WHS and require all staff trained to assist in an emergency situation (first aiders, wardens etc) to undergo some form of training not less than once, in every 6 month period. Don’t get caught out updating your first aid every 6 months, contact us now to find out how to meet these new requirements without breaking the training budget.
