First Aid Training
Here at Life Care Consultants we specialise in tailoring Advanced Workbased First Aid Training to meet the specific needs of both individual industries and workplaces. If you have a workforce of 10 or more people we can come to you and deliver our training on-site at your workplace. Our passionate, tertiary qualified facilitators are skilled in customising their delivery and content to ensure your staff are fully engaged in their first aid training. With the use of accelerated learning techniques coupled with lots of hands-on activities and practice, they will ensure the learning experience is not only fun and effective, but most importantly, memorable!
Whether you require a full or a refresher First Aid Course or an individually customised course for your workplace, we can provide a course for you at a time to suit your work schedule.
If you are a small business with fewer than 10 employees, we also hold Public First Aid Courses nationwide on a regular basis, from Whangarei in the Far North down through the lower reaches of the South Island. Feel free to contact us for more information about content, duration and investment for our first aid courses.
Examples of our on-site training include:
Advanced Workbased First Aid (NZQA)
This full day course is customised to your industry and/or workplace, and incorporates NZQA unit standards 6400, 6401 and 6402, the standards required for Workplace First Aiders in a hazardous workplace. There are no written tests, and we use a range of scenarios and activities to ensure you achieve the requirements of the course. Unit Standards are registered with NZQA.
First Responder First Aid (NZQA)
This four hour course is customised to your industry and/or workplace, and incorporates NZQA unit standards 6401 and 6402, the standards required for Workplace First Aiders in a low hazard workplace such as a call centre, office or retail centre. Again, there are no written tests, and we use a range of scenarios and activities to ensure you achieve the requirements of the course.
Refresher First Aid (NZQA)
This 4 hour course is customised to your industry and/or workplace, and must be completed every two years to revalidate an Advanced Workbased First Aid Certificate. Even if your staff completed their original training somewhere else, we can provide your refresher for you. All participants must have a current Advanced Workbased First Aid Certificate. This course can also be run as part of a full day Advanced Workbased First Aid Course, making it ideal for workplaces that have staff needing the full training mixed with those that only need refreshing. Unit Standards are re-registered with NZQA.
LCC First Aid Certificates
If you do not have a workplace requirement to register Unit Standards with NZQA then we also offer Non-NZQA certificates that cover the same content as the above courses however unit standards are not registered with NZQA. This includes:
- Advanced Workbased First Aid (Non-NZQA)
- Refresher First Aid (Non-NZQA)
- First Responder First Aid (Non-NZQA)
First Aid Training Courses for the Electrical Industry
We offer a range of Basic Life Support and Basic First Aid Courses that specifically meet the competency programme requirements of the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) for both low and high voltage electrical workers to uplift their EWRB practicing license.
Paediatric First Aid Training Courses
Paediatric courses are specially tailored to suit the requirements of the early childhood education and childcare industries. Topics included will be specific to infants and children e.g. febrile convulsions, childhood asthma, burns and fractures, to name a few.
