  • Refresher course: pre-course study plus 3 hours face-to-face

Important information regarding course durations:

Course durations, as mentioned above, are reflective of group sizes of between 4 and 15 participants. If there are less students in a group, you may find course duration reduced by a maximum of 10%. If a class size exceeds 15 participants it may therefore also be necessary to increase course duration depending on the number of participants.

Pre-course study options: (Pre-course study is optional)

There are a few different options for completing your pre-course study. 

We recommend our First Aid News Video as it is the most convenient option.

Other options include

  • Ebook
  • Online training
  • Hard copy coloured workbook 

The pre-course study includes multi-choice questions. You must take the completed paper, or the online completion print out, with you to the training course.

  • responded appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  • managed the unconscious breathing casualty
  • followed single rescue procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
  • followed the prompts of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Responded to at least one simulated first aid scenario contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting, including:
  • demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
  • provided an accurate verbal or written report of the incident
  • Applied first aid procedures for the following:
  • allergic reaction
  • anaphylaxis
  • bleeding control
  • choking and airway obstruction
