First aid courses are not refundable - please refer to our T's & C's for more details.

What you’ll gain

In only six-hours, our in-depth lessons and scenario-based activities will give you:

  • renewed confidence in being able to handle first aid emergencies
  • reacquaintance with first aid equipment, techniques, and practical skills along with any new methods and tips we’ve learned since your last training
  • a chance to complete the first half of this course online (just tick the box under each attendee who'd rather learn online than in class!)
  • a First Aid Refresher certificate is valid for 2 years upon successful completion

Prerequisites and restrictions

In order to offer this shorter, first aid re-certification opportunity, we must require that you:

  • are able to physically demonstrate CPR on the floor in a simulated emergency scenario
  • hold a current First Aid Level 1 or Level 2 or Refresher or equivalent certificate that is less than 2 years old

If your current certificate was issued more than two years ago or you need to earn NZQA units for the topics covered, we recommend our First Aid Level 1 course for a comprehensive training experience.
