Work Based First Aid Training for STUDENTS

First Aid is a life skill that your students  will value and appreciate.

First aid training for students provides them with an essential life skill, one that will help them not only in everyday life but also in future employment opportunities. As with our First Responder First Aid course, this course is for people new to first aid and working or looking to work in a low-hazard environment. Incorporating the NZQA unit standards of 6401 and 6402, this course adds the additional unit standard of 6400, Management of first aid emergencies, which is required for workplace first aiders.

There are no written tests, and we use a range of scenarios and activities to ensure achievement of the course.


At Life Care Consultants we specialise in providing tailored first aid training to meet the specific needs of students and schools. Our passionate, tertiary-qualified educators and facilitators are skilled in customising their content and delivery to ensure your students are fully engaged in their first aid training.
