First Aid for Childcare Organisations Information

Online and early payment discounts available

Our First Aid for Childcare Organisations courses are Workplace First Aider courses which meet NZQA, WorkSafe and Ministry of Education requirements. In recognition of the great importance for people associated with childcare to be first aid trained and the value they obtain from having access to cost effective first aid training, we offer special discounts for childcare centres / Kōhanga Reo and for parents or caregivers.

The Workplace First Aider course is made up of 8.5 hours training session time (usually one day) and a 4 hours Self-directed Learning Module that learners complete in their own time. We also offer revalidation (refresher) training; this course is made up of 4 hours training session time and a Self-directed Learning Module. To find out more about the course content and NZQA unit standards please view our course information.  We offer a comprehensive schedule of First Aid for Childcare Organisations training sessions in Hamilton; you can find our timetable below.
