Getting first aid training can help you in your career search in a few different ways.
Firstly, having this certification can give you an edge over other job applicants, as it shows that you take initiative, as well as have the knowledge and practical skills to help people in an emergency situation.
Secondly, you may be able to find more job opportunities in industries such as healthcare, hospitality and childcare, as employers in these sectors often prefer to hire people with first aid training.
Finally, having first aid training may also help you access higher-level roles, as employers often prefer to hire supervisors and managers with additional qualifications. Therefore, if you are looking for a career change, getting first aid training could be a great way to improve your chances of success.
There are also great local resources that you can connect with to access First Aid, CPR and other beneficial training.
