First Aid Certificates
The first aid certificate issued by a training provider is evidence that the holder has completed the training requirements of the training provider and is current in first aid practice. First aid certificates should be valid for a period of up to two years.
First Aid Refresher Training
Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. The refresher training should ensure the certificate holder is current in first aid practice appropriate to their individual workplace requirements.
If a certificate is not renewed for more than three calendar months from the second anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for the certificate holder to complete full first aid training to maintain currency.
For the purposes of workplace first aid emergency management, employers will need to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain competency.
Please note that Actions For Survival fully support the NZQA first aid training requirements and will work within the parameters of the requirements.
