Canberra’s most flexible
First Aid training 

Course cost: $45

Express Online is the quickest and most streamlined training method on the market. Students save time by completing knowledge tasks online and in their own time. All first aid courses have a practical element so you still need to attend a face-to-face session for that but the amount of time you need to spend in class less than half that of a conventional First Aid course.  

Course cost: $45

With a push towards online and distance learning it is difficult to find traditional in-class courses. Our face-to-face first aid courses are still our most popular, possibly because people still yearn for the hands-on comprehensive training and support that can come from a face-to-face course. Unlike other so-called face-to-face courses, there are no hidden online assessments or tasks.
