    Well.. My siblings were heavily involved in the st John cadet program and as the older sister I often took them to training or competitions so while I didn't participate I saw a lot. Also, having family in the medical industry helps. There are several nurses in the family. And although a while ago now one of the teachers at my high school did a short in class course spanning a couple sessions.

    I just edited because I realised I actually meant education not training. Sorry.

    I have to change the channel every time I see this come on. I was dumped by a huge wave when I was 14, hit my head and nearly drowned, so it certainly induces panic for me many years on.

    I have my senior first aid and think that it's a very valuable thing to do. There are also courses you can do specifically for babies & children. I have seen discounted 1st aid courses on websites like Scoopon, so that might be worthwhile keeping an eye on if you're keen.

    I think that if this ad inspires just one person to do the course and one life gets saved than it will be worth it. I think it's a great ad, too many people would NOT know what to do in an emergency...

    I would think an ad that would inspire as many people as possible would be far better. This ad just inspires people to switch channels or switch off even.

    I was quoted in that! my comment was the untrue, over the top one!

    Funnily enough I don't have a problem with most of the others especially the carefree real campaign. I thought that particular ad was well done and depicted real life scenario's in an age appropriate, inoffensive manner. I watch that thinking along going yep, yep, that's how it was. It's interesting how some things are considered inappropriate by some yet applauded by others.

    That is the national standards as well, and number 8 for an ad only shown in one state - I think it probably would have made number one if it were shown nation wide!

    I think the ad is stupid.

    I have done my first aid course many times, but this ad does not inspire me to go and do a first aid course at all. All it makes me want to do is jumpt in to the tv and smash the crap out of their stupid invisible barrier, because that mum jumped in after her boy immediately after he went down, and obviously... getting your child out of the water then calling an ambulance are the top 2 priorities, anybody anywhere first aid training or not would know they needed to do that, so their stupid invisible crappy barrier forcing the child to drown is just dumb and does not in any way resemble what it's like to not have first aid training.

    I just think it's silly. I also despise the cost coming up on the screen straight after, I think that's awful and totally unneccessary. Subtle wins every time. Not "KID BANGS HEAD, KID DROWNS, YOU DON'T HAVE FIRST AID KNOWLEDGE SO YOUR KID'S GOING TO DIE, CALL US! WE'LL TEACH YOU FOR $35" Meh

    I think more opportunistic education should be done - schools, workplaces, antenatal classes, parenting groups/classes, babies/toddlers/kids swimming classes, driver's ed etc

    Not this scare propaganda give us your money crap.
    I will watch this when I get a chance(in the middle of doing dinner) but your comments are spot on!
