First Aid for OSCAR - Short Course

Tuesday 13th June, 10am - 12.30pm

Venue: Oranga Community Centre, 52C Waitangi Road, Oranga

This course covers the common accidents in the playground plus it looks at typical medical conditions and how best to deal with them. CPR instruction is also included. The workshop is run by First Aid First  Feedback from these workshops has been very positive, with many saying it was the best first aid workshop they had ever done.

- Sarah, the tutor, issues everyone a certificate for the course and does run a practical CPR assessment
- Sarah knows her stuff and is super practical and focused on first aid for children.
- She carries a current qualification from the Resuscitation Council but this is not an NZQA or "Workplace First AId" workshop. 

Does the course meet accreditation requirements?

In our view 'yes' and many assessors agree. On the other hand, some have recommended that staff undertake "Workplace First Aid". Our view is that the workshop we are offering is a very affordable course, very high quality and much more valuable than what is covered in some full day courses. Some of our members say they can live with having a recommendation on their Accreditation report, when they know that staff have been to such a useful workshop. Some may still send a staff member to a full Workplace First Aid course, so they have that piece of paper - that's up to you. We also note that Sarah is a training provider of choice for staff at a number of Auckland schools.
