Asthma First Aid training for education staff
More staff around Australia are choosing to do the Asthma Australia Education Staff training online. Our recent evaluation tells us that the online package is as effective as face to face sessions for extension of asthma knowledge. Online is more flexible too - you can do it when it suits and can complete it in a number of sittings if preferred. Plus you can do the package anytime as a refresher. Check it out here.
Knowing the Australian protocol for Asthma First Aid can help you confidently deal with an asthma flare-up. Our staff training package covers:
- Asthma basics facts
- Triggers and symptoms
- Medications and devices
- Asthma Plans
- Asthma First Aid
