Unlike conventional first aid training, FirstAidPro’s Zoom courses take place entirely online, without any direct face to face contact. This makes it ideal both for lockdown conditions or for people in remote locations. But with Zoom training, this convenience doesn’t need to be at the expense of a truly interactive training experience.
When taking part in one of our Zoom training courses, students can log on and complete the online learning component of the course at a pace and time that suits them (you’ll generally need around half a day for this). Then, after completing the knowledge assessment and online pre-quiz, they can join in their Zoom session for the chance to learn from a highly experienced trainer in a supportive classroom environment.
Zoom first aid courses really do combine all the best elements of face-to-face and online training.
Our Zoom courses are scheduled throughout the week at various dates and times. Some weekend sessions are available for those unavailable in work hours. To check specific dates times for courses, have a look at our course calendar. Alternatively, get in touch with us to talk through what session times might work for you.
For corporate and group bookings, you might even be able to arrange a dedicated Zoom session at a time suited to your group. But remember, you’ll need to book at least a week out from the course’s scheduled date – to allow time for your resource pack to be delivered, and make sure you’ve completed the online learning content.
As of early 2015, any student undertaking some form of formal, accredited study in Australia has required a USI number, or “Unique Student Identifier”. This is a unique ID number – rather like a tax file number – that is linked to you and used to track any formal training you’ve taken part in throughout Australia. You’ll need to provide one to FirstAidPro before you can take part in any of our training courses. This is something you’ll need to arrange yourself – it’s a unique piece of official government identification and not something FirstAidPro can provide you with. But fortunately, getting one is relatively easy- just go to the USI website to start the process.
