First Aid for Trades Information

Online and early payment discounts available

Our First Aid for Trades courses are Workplace First Aid courses that meet NZQA and WorkSafe requirements.  We understand the value of time in the trades sector and are pleased to support you by offering our first aid courses in a way that only requires one day off the tools. If that isn’t enough to seal the deal, we also offer a trades discount.

The Workplace First Aid 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 which is made up of 4 hours class 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 regular first aid training sessions in Hamilton East; you can find our timetable below. Group bookings for alternative dates and/or times are welcome. For example, we are happy to schedule an early morning start to fit in with your workday routine.  If you are interested in these options please visit information for groups.
