First aid course stylesFlexible delivery styles for our Workplace First Aider, Foundation First Aid, and Revalidation First Aid course
We offer three styles for our Workplace First Aider, Foundation First Aid, and Revalidation First Aid course: blended, traditional, and face-to-face. These styles differ in the type and length of pre-course learning and practical session. All styles meet the requirements for unit standard-based workplace first aid training, including time requirements. We regularly schedule blended and traditional style courses and offer face-to-face training by request.
1. Blended style courses are made up of online learning (completed in the learner’s own time) and a short, small group practical session. The online learning covers all course theory and during the practical session learners learn and practise skills and participate in scenario based assessment.
2. Traditional style courses are made up of paper-based self-directed learning homework (completed in the learner’s own time) and a full-day or half-day (depending on course type) practical session. The homework provides some course theory and learning activities. The practical session is a combination of theory and practical learning activities and learners participate in first aid scenarios for learning and assessment. There are no written tests.
3. Face-to-face style courses are delivered completely face-to-face without any pre-learning component. These courses are very practical and theory delivery is integrated with practical learning activities in a highly engaging manner.

Our face-to-face course style suits learners who learn best by interacting with others in a classroom setting and prefer minimal writing.
