First Aid (FA) and Advanced Resuscitation Techniques (ART) are two awards, often taught together (referred to as ARTFA). These focus on out-of-the-water life support and medical management. These are nationally recognized awards that fulfill units of competency (HLTAID011 & HLTAID015)
This is generally a 2 day course that goes over more advanced First Aid then what is taught in bronze, as well as how to use and manage oxygen, manage severe bleeds and more!
