The most thorough Basic Life Support course in New Zealand with an emphasis on the skills that truly matter. This course awards Unit Standards 6402, 6401 and 6400.
Be introduced and familiarised with a broad range of First Aid conditions and scenarios and practice hands-on skills to manage a casualty until help can arrive.
As with all PracMed NZ courses, it is highly interactive and practical ensuring you are taught best practice, functional skills with our state of the art training aids. Our high quality trainers have been selected not only for their real-world first aid experience, but also for their charisma and ability to make the subject enjoyable.
This course includes the PracMed NZ Stop the Bleed® course. We believe that no Kiwi should die from an extremity bleed - the more New Zealanders who learn these clinically proven skills, the better. You'll be shown skills above basic direct pressure methods including the use of tourniquets and best in market bandages, with skills practiced on our state of the art training aids which give you hands on experience with the trauma trainers. Each student receives brand new ( in packet) bandages and gauze so you understand every single step - from taking a deep, settling breath and gloving up, to opening the packets to engage in treatment. Best thing is, you get to take this home to practice!
Why is this course longer than other providers?
We pride ourselves in quality over quantity and from our own experience of dealing with First Aid emergencies, we know that you do not rise to the occasion, but fall to the level of your training. So why attend a course to just ‘tick-a-box’? If you’re going to attend, you might as well be engaged, learn new skills and get hands-on practice. The addition of the Stop the Bleed® course goes above and beyond NZQA requirements. We ensure you leave with a renewed appreciation for the realities of first aid - that you could be called upon to use these skills, because accidents can happen anywhere, at any time, to any person. When lives are at stake, we believe that ensuring you are truly equipped with the skills you need and the system and process of what to do and when, is a non-negotiable. We only stock the best products on the market. When it comes to training, you are our product - we want to make you the best responder you can be so you never have to wonder “what if...?”.
