First Aid Courses


Te Runanga o Nga Maata Waka is accredited to deliver First Aid Courses

As part of this, all courses can be delivered at your site or at our training rooms.

Group or individual bookings are welcome.


Everyone should learn first aid. It is an important part of your life, be it at work or at home.

It may sound dramatic, but someone who can administer basic care until emergency assistance arrives may be the difference between life and death. That is at its extreme level, but knowing first aid can help in all manner of situations - minor accidents and injuries included. 

 If you enrol in one of our courses, you will be given the information you need and the confidence to act when you are faced with a medical emergency and immediate professional help is not available.





You will learn how to improvise in an emergency. First aid is the initial response, and if you are able to act before other medical services arrive, you can make a difference.

Training dates and times are flexible – we will fit into your schedule. 

We can accommodate you and your team on our own premises, or come to you. Whatever suits you and is most convenient.
