First Timers & Refreshers

This course is suitable for those that have never done first aid before and also for those refreshing their skills. First timers need to complete an online learning module prior to attending the practical training day. Refreshers have access to the online learning material, but need only bring their current first aid certificate to demonstrate their prior learning.
The first aid practical training day is designed to identify the training needs of participants and assist in the development of competent practical skills.
