She lives for the outdoors and has been involved in United North Piha and Piha Surf Life Saving Clubs for 18 years.

First Aid is essential for any industry or workplace and our Workplace First Aid courses have fun, hands-on scenarios to equip you with the skills and confidence to manage emergency situations anywhere; from the office to the factory, or at home.
Outdoor First Aid equips you to care of a patient for long periods before help arrives. It also means that access to specialised equipment may be unavailable and that improvisation is needed because of your remote location.
Looking for a public course to attend? Our courses will leave you more confident in administering First Aid. We have public First Aid courses in Auckland, Northland and Canterbury.
This course is advanced training for people holding a current first aid certificate who wish to advance their knowledge and skills to a PHEC qualification for their work, e.g. outdoor instructors, surf lifesavers, ski patrollers and LandSAR members.
We cater for all teaching and support staff, as well as High school students needing First Aid training, to gain valuable NZQA credits for their studies. Course can be tailored to suit your school, so ask us how we can accommodate your needs.
First Aid certification is a must for your designated first-aiders and staff and all our courses cover the requirements for H&S workplace compliance. Please contact First Training directly on 0800-1st Aid, for group bookings.
