New Zealand Red Cross is New Zealand's leading provider of first aid training. We help to empower Kiwis to look after themselves and others in a healthy and safe way. We are proud to have the ultimate stamp of approval from NZQA as a Category One first aid training provider and offer a variety of courses throughout the country.
Building community resilience
We have found that resilient communities know what to do in an emergency situation - and that includes knowing and practicing first aid. After the Christchurch earthquakes there were numerous accounts of lives being saved by members of the public who reacted swiftly and performed basic first aid. People took care of other people, and this experience highlights the benefit of seeking training before an emergency occurs.
Our suite of courses gives everyone in the community the opportunity to gain appropriate first aid skills. Our first aid courses enhance community resilience by enabling people to react quickly and safely in a medical emergency or to provide help in a disaster, whether it be in the home, at work, on the sports field or in public places.
