Group First Aid Course Information

Organise a private first aid course at a time that suits your group
Practical Training Solutions offers flexible private group bookings for first aid training. This option is convenient if you have a group of people who would like to do a first aid course together or if you prefer a training session held at your premises, during evenings, weekends or just a date that suits you better than our scheduled sessions. We can tailor sessions to your needs. Training sessions can be held at your premises (in the Waikato region) but we also have a venue available for use in Hamilton (subject to availability). We offer private group bookings from as little as four people; however, prefer a minimum of 10 attendees.

Course duration and delivery method

To meet NZQA requirements our Workplace First Aider course is a minimum of 12 hours.

We offer two NZQA approved delivery methods.  Both have been developed to meet the time requirement for unit standard based workplace first aid training.

1. Blended course made up of online learning (completed in the learner’s own time) + a short, small group practical training session. The session will be up to 2 hours and compliments the online learning which is completed before the practical session. Practical sessions can be scheduled to suit your group and can start earlier or later in the day.  Your Trainer will need a break between sessions.

2. Traditional course made up of self-directed learning worksheets (completed in the learner’s own time) + a full day or half day (depending on course type) training session.  The Workplace First Aider session typically starts at 8:15am and ends at 5pm and the Revalidation First Aid session ends at 12:45pm.  We can start at a time that suits your group.

There is the option for the course to be delivered over two days, with or without the homework component.  Please contact us to discuss how we can best meet your needs.

Scheduling and venue

We are flexible and can generally deliver the training session on your preferred date – week days or weekends. Availability of our venue is limited due to our publicly scheduled classes, but we do have some availability on weekends and some evenings for smaller groups.  We can also recommend venues for you to hire.  All venues arranged by the client must be suitable for education (with sufficient seating, floor space, ventilation and toilets) and must meet health and safety requirements.

Course fees and discounts

The usual course fee is $225 for the Workplace First Aider course and $135 for the Revalidation course but we offer an affordable flat rate for groups based on group size, which can reduce the cost to as little as $80 per person. We will quote pricing options based on the training requirements you require; considering group size, location and any special needs.
