First Aid Revalidation and Lone Workers Revalidation
It’s that time again! This one day course is a refresher of your first aid skills, keeping your knowledge up to date and relevant. First aid certificates should be revalidated every two years.
First Aid Revalidation
People who have a first aid certificate issued by an accredited training provider, who need to revalidate their certificate.
What this 6-hour course covers
Revalidate your first aid certificate every two years. Take the time to refresh your first aid skills and keep up to date with any changes to best practice, so you're ready to help in an emergency or accident. This course meets the requirements of the “First Aid for Workplaces – A Good Practice Guide 2011” to revalidate workplace first aid.
First aid certificates must be revalidated every two years, to keep them from expiring. We are able to revalidate your certificate if it is three months, or less, past the expiry of your two year certificate.

Lone Workers First Aid Revalidation
People who work in a rural environment, and who are often alone in medium to high risk roles. Farmers, DOC staff, rangers & rural pest control workers have benefited from this training.
What this 8-hour course covers
Farmers and other workers in the agricultural sector, or people that work alone, may not always find conventional first aid courses useful. Some courses don't cover strategies for people who work alone.
Developed in conjunction with OSPRI, the course is designed as an alternative to our First Aid Revalidation course, and is generally run for groups.
You will learn:
- Standard first aid revalidation on CPR and choking
- Infection and disease control in a rural setting
- Extended options for bleeding and shock
- Management of soft tissue injuries and fractures when alone
- Dealing with burns, poisons and allergic reactions.
