Mixed Mode: Completion pre-course study plus 7 hours practical training

Course durations, as mentioned above, are reflective of group sizes of between 4 and 15 participants. If there are less students in a group, you may find course duration reduced by a maximum of 10%. If a class size exceeds 15 participants it may therefore also be necessary to increase course duration depending on the number of participants.

Pre-course Study Requirements

There are a number of different options for completing the pre-course study. All pre-course options are available through Allens Training.

We recommend our First Aid News Video as it is the most convenient option.

  • Completion of the First Aid Pre-course Workbook
  • Ebook
  • Online training

The pre-course study includes a question paper consisting of  65 multi choice questions. You must take the completed paper with you to the training course.
