ESSENTIAL FIRST AID - for anyone who wants to learn up-to-date, general First Aid ...
About the course:
This is a concise practical course covering general First Aid. It looks at:
- CPR (practice with manikins) plus use of automated defibrillators in a public setting;
- Choke-rescue techniques (practice with manikins);
- Dealing with emergency medical situations such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetic emergencies, seizures, etc;
- Dealing with other emergency situations such as burns, allergic reactions, poisonings, concussion, broken bones, etc.
This course can also be adapted to suit specific workplaces - we have, for example, run courses for arborists, roofing insulators, gym trainers, aged care facilities, where we are able to focus on the potential risks and concerns of these specific industries as well as covering more general first aid.
Everyone on the course receives a booklet, to complement the explanations and demonstrations on the course. Participants also receive a certificate. The course is four hours long.

Workplaces need to ensure that they meet WorkSafe NZ requirements for first aiders. This shorter course can be helpful as an additional course for workplaces who wish to go above and beyond their legal requirements and ensure that ALL their staff know what to do in an emergency, without the huge cost and time commitments of the longer NZQA courses. Plus there is the advantage of this course being tailor-made to meet the workplace's specific risks and needs.
