First Aid For All

A Community Project


Course Bookings

Where can we hold our assessments?

Your assessment venue is pre-agreed and we will come to you wherever you are in New Zealand providing your facility meets the requirements to hold a first aid course. This includes: 

Building Warrant of Fitness 

Car Parking must be available for our tutor 

A tv/whiteboard/projection wall for our presentation to be set up on 

A room that can facilitate 21 people comfortably , enough floor space to complete CPR assessments 

Good lighting 

We would like to know if your venue provides Tea/Coffee for your guests


How do we organise our assessment dates?


These dates are agreed with you prior to students commencing their online learning. This means that each student has a completion goal and knows when their assessment dates are well in advance.

What happens if we dont get 20 people for our course?


This is not a problem all our courses are designed to accommodate a maximum of 20 students. Even if you were only able to get 10 people for the course, due to our pricing structure it would still work out as one of the cheapest workplace courses around.

There is also the possibility that we may be able to add students to your assessment course by pre-agreement with you. This would then result in your course costs being reduced further in the event that you do not have 20 students.


What happens if we cancel our booking?


Please read our cancellation policy below:

Assessment Details


How long will my assesment be?


If you are undertaking the full course your assessment will be 4 hours long plus any arranged breaks.

If you are undertaking a revalidation course your assessment will be 2 hours long plus any arranged breaks.


What will my assessment be like?


They are practical based assessments. You will be read a scenario, then be required to demonstrate your ability to deal with the medical emergency. Please do not panic. You will already be familiar with the format and given the opportunity to convert the knowledge you have already learned into a practical skill set.


What do I need to bring to my assessment?


Most importantly ourself, a pen and some comfortable clothes. Remember some of the assessments will involve getting down onto the floor.


What happens if I leave the assessment early?


Actions for Survival is committed to ensuring the certificate you receive is compliant with the New Zealand first aid training requirements. In order for this to happen, you will need to complete the whole of the assessment component of the course. This will take four hours in the classroom. If you are unable to complete this requirement we will be unable to issue a full first aid certificate.




How will we receive our certificates?


Once your assessment has been completed your results will be processed at our office. Upon successful completion, your NZQA record of learning will be updated and your certificate will be sent out to either your organisation or yourself as arranged.


Which certificate of achievement will I receive?


Upon successful completion of your online learning, you will be given a choice to register for a workplace assessment or finish the course and receive a downloadable certificate which acknowledges your completion of the theory component only. Please note this certificate is not a recognised workplace qualification.

The opportunity to complete a full workplace certificate unit standards 6400, 6401 and 6402 is available by attending a 4-hour assessment. 


How do I know if I hold a current revalidation certificate?


To register for the Intermediate First Aid Refresher course, you will need to send in a copy of your current first aid certificate to . The office will confirm the currency of your certificate and direct you to have access to the Refresher E-Learning course.


How much does a reprinted certificate cost?


To receive a reprint certificate on card is $5.00 + GST. Contact us via email to request a reprint.


Community Projects

(Please note that due to COVID 19 donations to our community project activities have been put on hold and will be reviewed in 2021).


How do we set up a project?


Upon agreeing to take part in the First Aid for All community project we will arrange assessment dates with you. Once assessment dates have been put in place, we will then discuss and agree with you on a specific community-based project. We will provide you with a contract that outlines our commitment to the agreed project. 


Do we have to set up a project?


No, you do not need to have your own project although we would encourage you to do so, as the purpose of First Aid for All is to assist in creating beneficial community-based projects. Supporting another community project is another alternative, we have a range of projects set up on our page for you to choose from.  Alternatively, if you have no interest in choosing a project, the team at Actions will choose which project the donation will be made to. 


Where does our money go until our project goal is achieved?


All donations will be held in a special account and fully open to scrutiny. 


What happens when we reach our project goal?


When your community project goal has been reached a presentation will be organised at an agreed time.


How can we achieve our project goal faster?


One of our goals is to provide the opportunity for every person in New Zealand to be first aid trained, this is why we have made our online learning completely free. We have designed our initiative to accommodate this vision, allowing the recruitment of people from both inside and outside of your ogranisation. For each person that registers under your code and completes an assessment, a further donation is made to your organisation’s project. The more people we recruit together, the more money and the quicker your project will be realised. 


How do we choose which project we would like to support?


Check out our community projects page (page coming soon) for all the amazing projects we are partnering, from here you can make your choice.
