Blended Traditional Comparison

Click here to view a comparison of the two delivery methods.

​We offer two delivery methods.  Both have been developed to meet the 12 hour 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 are scheduled every two hours 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 3pm Saturday and Sunday.  These sessions are held at our venue in Hamilton East.

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 starts at 8:15am and ends at 5pm; the Revalidation First Aid session starts at 8:15am and ends at 12:45pm.  Sessions are held at different venues in Hamilton.

When making your booking, you'll be able to choose between a blended or traditional course and then a calendar of available dates will display.
