Refresh first aid knowledge and skills
First aid skills need to be regularly updated and practiced, to ensure you’ll be able to do the right thing in an emergency. This refresher training course is designed to equip you with the latest information and techniques.

You did the right thing by getting trained in the first place, so it makes sense to keep your knowledge and skills up-to-date. Book a refresher course now and you’ll maintain your confidence as an effective first aider.

If you didn’t complete your original course with us, it doesn’t matter. You can still choose St John for your refresher training.

What you’ll gain
This six-hour first aid refresher course has a practical focus. It includes scenarios and individual workstations, so that you can reacquaint yourself with first aid equipment and techniques. Learning is fun and focuses on what you need to know. On completion you will:

  • be issued with a new first aid certificate
  • be up-to-date with the latest first aid skills and knowledge

Course prerequisites
This refresher course is suitable for people who need to revalidate their First Aid certificate because they are a designated first aider. If your certificate was issued more than two years ago, or you need to learn first aid from scratch, consider a comprehensive basic course like First Aid - Level One.

First Aid Refresher is also ideal for anybody who has completed basic first aid or workplace first aid training in the past – for any reason – and wants to keep their skills current.  St John recommends that first aid training is refreshed every two years.

Please note: The First Aid Refresher course does not include assessment for unit standards, and is designed to refresh / maintain existing skills for those who have previously completed unit standards 6402, 6401 and 6400 or 26551 and 26552. If your existing qualifications were obtained outside of New Zealand these will need to be assessed by NZQA (

Individual and group courses
First Aid Refresher courses are regularly held at St John premises throughout New Zealand. They are ideal for individuals or small groups. If you have a larger group, St John can arrange a course just for you at your premises or ours.
