First aid for farmers

Practical first aid training tailored to farm risks and environmental settings

Our First Aid on Farms course covers the most important first aid needs of a typical New Zealand farm. It covers:

  • Practical first aid skills (stopping severe bleeding, applying a tourniquet, managing burns, managing soft tissue injuries, stabilising limbs and fractures, moving patient, getting help)
  • CPR, shock, and bleeding
  • First aid equipment needs
  • Scenario work (quad bike rollover, crushing by animal)
  • Special considerations for dairy farms (working in isolation, difficulties accessing emergency services, remoteness)

The key features of this course are:

  • 4-hour course, delivered face-to-face
  • No homework, no written assessment
  • Focuses on practical skills and relevant scenarios
  • Does not include unit standard assessment
