Who we are

Actions for Survival (AFS) was founded in 2004 with a core business offering quality, fun first aid training to New Zealanders across the country. Actions for Survival Training Limited (AFST) is registered and accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) as a Private Training Establishment (PTE) and is a category one training provider. AFS is committed to making a difference in the community, raising awareness concerning first aid training and encouraging more people to obtain the skills associated.

We are also keen advocates of seeing more defibrillators becoming readily available and assisting the move towards more people having the chance to recover from sudden cardiac arrest. Whether first aid is needed at home, school or work and used on a family member, work colleague, friend or a complete stranger. Having the skills and more importantly, the confidence to manage a medical emergency is essential. As they say "actions speak louder than words".

AFS is now offering the opportunity to learn how to save a life through its new program. First Aid for All is a community-based project that's available to schools, churches, early childcare education centres and sports associations completely free of charge.
