Early Childcare


Learning first aid is beneficial for everyone, regardless of age or occupation and developing the
skills through a first aid certified course can be fun too, with the team at First Training.


First Training has courses designed specifically for the childcare industry that meet with MOE guidelines. Our practical courses cover accident management, unconscious patient assessment, CPR and use of AED, choking, severe bleeding, fractures, allergies, medical conditions and
common work site injuries.

The 2 Day Workplace First Aid is suitable for all Early Childhood facilities and will gain you an MOE compliant certification.
This is a practical and hands on course; working in small teams, participants get to practice their skills in the childcare environment with interactive scenarios:

  • A comprehensive 12-hour course, (2 days of 6 hours), held at your learning centre or a suitable venue, at times to suit you.
  • Covers all topics teachers need in an Early Childcare environment, including essential CPR.
  • Instructors are able to cover and discuss medical conditions specific to your centre.
  • You will learn how to use an AED and we will check your on-site Defibrillator, if you have one.
  • All participants who complete the full course will receive a digital  PDF certification, valid for 2 years.
  • NZQA credits 6400, 6401 + 6402 are available if required with this course, for an extra cost.


Please note: There will be opportunity in the course, if required, where content can be tailored accordingly, to suit your workplace requirements. Please discuss this with our team and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
