First Aid Refresher courses - COVID-19 grace period

Toitū te Waiora would like to remind first aid providers and employers that there is now a grace period for refresher courses that applies to Unit Standards 6400, 6401 and 6402.

The maximum time allowed between the award of these standards to an individual and their first refresher course is now two years and six months. Likewise, the maximum time allowed between refresher courses is also two years and six months.

People who do not undertake refresher courses in this timeframe will be required to re-take the unit standards.

This grace period will remain in place until further notice.
