First Aid for Tertiary Students Information

Book online and pay early to receive our student discount

We understand that tertiary students have to budget carefully. We’d like you to attend a first aid course and also know that many of you have to have a first aid certificate as part of your study so we offer a student discount of up to 50% on Workplace First Aider courses. Whether you study at a university, polytechnic (for example Wintec) or a Private Training Establishment (PTE), all you need to do is book online and show us your valid ID card.

The Workplace First Aider course is made up of 8.5 hours classroom / training session time and a 4 hour Self-directed Learning Module (homework) that learners complete in their own time. We also offer revalidation (refresher) training for those who need to keep their certificate up to date. The Revalidation First Aid course is made up of 4 hours classroom time and a Self-directed Module. To find out more about the course content and NZQA unit standards please view our course information.
