An online First Aid workbook can be optionally selected prior to course commencement. The online workbook link and log in details are emailed to students once enrolment is received.

This optional pre-learning takes approx. 1.5hrs to complete and consists of a First Aid course manual to assist students with answering a series of multiple-choice questions. Answers can be saved and finished any time prior to the course commencement.

Important note: In order to issue an accredited certificate, CPR must be performed on the floor with no exemptions.

Clothing: We suggest that you wear comfortable casual clothing, as the practical nature of the demonstrations and practice may possibly require bending, kneeling and lying on the floor. Pants and flat shoes are recommended.
