Our First Aid for Trades courses are Workplace First Aid courses that meet NZQA and WorkSafe requirements. We offer reduced course fees for tradies. We understand the value of time in this sector and are pleased to support you by offering our first aid courses in a way that only requires one day off the tools.

The Workplace First Aid course is made up of 8.5 hours class time (usually taught in one day) and a 4 hour Self Directed Learning (SDL) Module that Learners complete in their own time. We also offer revalidation training. The Revalidation First Aid course is made up of 4 hours class time and a 2 hour SDL Module.
