The First Aid Training and Certification industry has benefited from mostly positive conditions over the past five years. While many downstream markets have been affected by turbulent conditions, the industry has held firm. The diversity of the industry's client base has allowed it a degree of protection against downstream fluctuations, as have regulatory requirements imposed by the Federal Government. Industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 1.7% over the five years through 2012-13, to total $361.8 million. The Australian economy is in the midst of an upturn, with business and consumer confidence recovering.
Firms in this industry teach emergency treatment procedures that are administered to an injured or sick person before professional medical care is available. Industry operators may also provide certification to assure qualification to perform first aid. The industry does not include online courses, academic schools, colleges and universities.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
