The training is similar to an accredited training course but there are no verification of competency examinations.  There may be quizzes to test your understanding, however, they are not examinations of skill.

Non-accredited training is more flexible and informal. It is not subject to formal assessment but offers practical first aid skills and knowledge that is invaluable in emergencies. 

Who Benefits from Non-Accredited Training?

  • The general public
  • Parents
  • Elderly care providers
  • Safety-conscious individuals
  • Those seeking to refresh their first aid knowledge

Benefits of Non-Accredited Training:

  • Doesn’t require assessment or formal testing
  • Can be more cost-effective
  • Often more accessible and adaptable to individual schedules
  • Valuable for daily emergencies at home or in public settings

The Case for Non-Accredited Training: A Skill Versus a Certificate

While accredited courses are undeniably valuable, non-accredited first aid training offers the opportunity to develop practical skills without the pressure of formal assessment. There is immense value in the basic knowledge that non-accredited first aid courses provide, especially for those outside of the formal workplace environment. This is about acquiring a skill, not just earning a certificate to acknowledge it.

Why Go Non-Accredited?

  • The focus is on practical application rather than ticking boxes
  • Our non-accredited training can be more cost-effective as the whole family can do the same course
  • No minimum age requirement, making it family-friendly
  • Provides general, versatile skills for day-to-day emergencies
  • It empowers individuals by removing the barrier of formal assessment

Making Skills Stick:

Non-accredited training can also be more accessible, with less stringent time commitments, allowing participants to learn at their own pace. It fosters a continuous improvement mindset, where first aid skills can be updated and improved more frequently.

The Value of Basic First Aid Skills Cannot Be Overstated

There's no underestimating the value of first aid skills in our communities. Whether you opt for accredited training that provides a formal certification or the more casual approach of non-accredited courses that build practical skills, the choice to learn first aid is a crucial step toward ensuring the safety and well-being of those around you. Plus, with non-accredited training, you'll be providing your loved ones and yourself with a crucial skillset that could indeed save a life one day.

In a world where accidents are unforeseen, and emergencies can strike at any time, the assurance of being prepared is invaluable. Remember, it's not just about knowing what to do in an emergency—it's about having the confidence to act swiftly and effectively. Whether you're a first-time learner or refreshing your knowledge, make the commitment to incorporate first aid training into your lifestyle. Your future self will thank you.


This is a non-accredited course.  You cannot use it for work requirements. If you need a first aid qualification for work you will need to complete the HLTAID011 Provide First Aid qualification. We conduct these courses as well however a practical assessment component is required. We can complete this via zoom if needed.
