Workplace First Aid Training

Sport Canterbury and Workplace First Aid Training established a partnership in 2020. Since then, we have been delivering first aid courses to schools, sports clubs and other organisations in the region. The aim of our partnership is to ensure that more people are first aid trained as it’s a valuable life skill to have.


Workplace First Aid Training Ltd is a New Zealand Qualifications Authority accredited Private Training Establishment (PTE). Our first aid courses are customised for our clients to ensure individual needs are met. We provide quality, affordable and enjoyable courses that give participants the skills, knowledge and confidence to deliver emergency first aid.

We have a team of 5 based in Canterbury – Regional Manager, Administrator and 3 Instructors. Our public courses are held at Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub in Christchurch where plenty of free car parking is available. We can have up to 20 participants on a course, which makes for a great group dynamic.

We offer a range of course types including Comprehensive, Workplace, Recertification and Provide Basic Emergency Care. Our one-day Comprehensive course covers Unit standards 6400, 6401 & 6402.

Benefits of partnering with us include:

  • Training content and techniques are practical and easy to remember in an emergency.
  • Experienced instructors who are upbeat and keep participants engaged.
  • Private onsite delivery – we can teach onsite in the environment that your team are comfortable in (minimum of 12 participants required)
  • Pre-course online learning component allows participants to learn at their own pace and reduces face-to-face course time.
  • Our customer portal provides the ability to view course bookings, certificates and expiry dates.

It is important to us to support the local community. For this reason, the proceeds from all our first aid courses that take place in the Canterbury West Coast region are invested into up-and-coming young athletes. Sport Canterbury and Workplace First Aid Training are committed to supporting our regional athletes to transition into the national high-performance pathway, via a tailored support programme.

Please refer to for examples of the inspirational things that these young athletes have achieved. They represent a wide range of sports and have achieved greatness with our assistance.
