We also believe that we should have as many qualified first aiders in New Zealand as possible. If just one person who as a result of learning new skills saves someones life then together we have changed the world. In order to help create first-aid heros so we have decided to subsidise the cost of our assessments.

This takes half a day meaning that you only lose your valued staff for a short period and returned having completed either the full or revalidation course. The learning platform remains accessable to you meaning that any updates that occur, or if team members want to refresh their knowledge over the two years between course it is still available.

Here’s what the decision makers say about the course

Below are comments from the organisers, those who have gone through the booking process working together with our staff. These are the same people who have received the feedback from their staff team and we have asked them to comment on their experience with First Aid For All.

I love the training, it’s fun, interesting and never dull. After the training a few years ago I came across a head on accident. I was the first there and the training gave me the confidence to take charge, I was very calm as I knew what I was doing. I’m not sure I would have done the same thing without the training thanks.

Glen Cowie

Service Manager & Learner

“Actions for Survival has been conducting the first aid training for Kindercare Learning Centres for 15 years.  They are fantastic to deal with and work in partnership with us to facilitate first aid courses twice a year for employees nationwide.  Their facilitators are experienced, competent and make the training fun whilst still ensuring that the core competencies are met.” 

Ronel Dyssel

Procurement Manager

Actions for Survival’s first aid training course was both comprehensive and engaging. The online modules were well designed and informative. Nicki is a fantastic facilitator for the in-person component of the program, and was able to keep a large group on task but still make it fun. We look forward to having Nicki back in to do more courses, and would highly recommend the course for any organisation where First Aid training for staff is a necessity.

We also would love to know about any experiences and interventions you have after you have completed a course with us.

Actions Speak Louder than Words

At Actions For Survival, we believe that everybody should have the chance to learn first aid wherever possible. It is the genuine life skill. As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words.

We have taken action to assist with this vision. First Aid for All took the content of our traditional classroom teachings, and we converted it into online content. We decided that we would make this learning available to all New Zealanders FREE of charge. No matter who or where you are in Aotearoa this facility is available to you providing you have access to a computer and an internet connection. 

Our learning is designed to be completed at a pace that suits you. Spend ten minutes a day or do it in one go the choice is yours. Once the learning has been achieved, the opportunity exists to convert your knowledge into a recognised first aid certificate. 

We want to encourage as many people as possible to get qualified. To further assist with this goal, Actions for Survival has subsidised the cost of our assessments. The assessments are conducted in the same way as they would be on a traditional first aid course. We think when you compare our prices, you will agree that First Aid for All is an excellent opportunity to learn for FREE and if you decide to get qualified outstanding value for money.

It's cheap you only get what you pay for! It is not always the case. Actions For Survival Training Limited is registered and accredited as a Private Training Establishment and is proud to be afforded Category One status. First Aid for All is not about cutting corners; it is about a vision and a desire to save lives and improve the quality of care in a medical emergency. 

Another benefit of a blended learning option is a workplace team has the flexibility to study as time allows and the time taken to complete assessments results in less time being spent away from the workplace.

Click on the group or individual tab below to check out the prices and see if First Aid for All is for you. If online learning is not your thing, we do still offer traditional first aid courses.
