Our Foundation First Aid Certificate (Workplace First Aid Course) is recommended for low-risk workplaces and designed for people who do not need to obtain the 6400 unit standard (Manage first aid in an emergency situation) which is covered in our New Zealand First Aid Certificate (Comprehensive First Aid Course).
It will give you skills, knowledge and confidence when providing first aid. You will learn the same priorities and approach to patient care that the professionals use, and how to carry out that care until they arrive. These skills are learned and mastered while having fun along the way.
The Foundation First Aid Certificate (Workplace First Aid Training Course) starts at 9am.
