We may not do it in the classroom for a while, but we can still do it online.

First Aid for All is here for you.

Actions for Survival has now put on hold its traditional first aid training courses delivered in the classroom due to the COVID-19 crisis. We have, however, been offering online courses using the First Aid for All program for a while now. To help counter the situation, we all now find ourselves in, we have created an online assessment to support both the full workplace and recertification (refresher) courses that we deliver.

Following successful completion of the online assessment, Actions for Survival will be in a position to offer participants who successfully complete the course with an E-Certificate.

Register today to start your learning experience. Once completed let us know, and we will book you into a time slot where your learning will be used to achieve a one on one assessment with one of our experienced assessors.

Another update will be coming shortly...

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 .

What the clients say

We had Bronwyn last time and had great feedback, this time I was actually on the first aid course myself and it was fantastic!  Hands down the best one I have ever been on.  So well delivered, hats off to Bronwyn to deliver such an intense serious subject so well and keep everyone interested and engaged.

Bronwyn was brilliant. Warm engaging, caring, funny and careful with people around potential disturbing images and scenarios.

Knowledgeable and supportive, couldn’t have asked for more

Loved this training.

I feel so much more knowledgeable and have practiced skills that I can apply.

I feel more confident and less scared.

I had to leave previous first aid course I did years ago but Bronwyn was flipping brilliant, supportive to me and I stayed engaged throughout the course.

It has changed my attitude towards doing first aid courses. Thank you Bronwyn you’re a star. Would recommend this course hands down.
