Kiwi Veteran Owned & Operated
Comprehensive First Aid + Plus+ Remote Areas First Aid
Level 2 First Aid
Ideal for those who work or play in non-urban areas, or for those looking to upskill with the most comprehensive 2 day course on the market.
In this course, you will be introduced to a variety of first aid emergencies, from minor to major emergencies. The hands-on, practical format provides an ideal learning environment so that theoretical knowledge is backed up with practical competence.
As with all PracMed NZ courses, it is highly interactive and practical ensuring you are taught best practice, functional skills with our state of the art training aids. Our high quality Trainers have been selected not only for their real-world first aid experience, but also for their charisma and ability to make the subject enjoyable.
This course includes the PracMed NZ Stop the Bleed® and Remote Areas First Aid course. We believe that no Kiwi should die from an extremity bleed - the more New Zealanders who learn these clinically proven skills, the better. You'll be shown skills above basic direct pressure methods including the use of tourniquets and best in market bandages, with skills practiced on our state of the art training aids which give you hands on experience with the trauma trainers. Each student receives brand new ( in packet) bandages and gauze so you understand every single step - from taking a deep, settling breath and gloving up, to opening the packets to engage in treatment. Best thing is, you get to take this home to practice!
Why is this course longer than other providers?
We pride ourselves in quality over quantity and from our own experience of dealing with First Aid emergencies, we know that you do not rise to the occasion, but fall to the level of your training. So why attend a course to just ‘tick-a-box’? If you’re going to attend, you might as well be engaged, learn new skills and get hands-on practice. The addition of the Stop the Bleed® course goes above and beyond NZQA requirements. We ensure you leave with a renewed appreciation for the realities of first aid - that you could be called upon to use these skills, because accidents can happen anywhere, at any time, to any person. When lives are at stake, we believe that ensuring you are truly equipped with the skills you need and the system and process of what to do and when, is a non-negotiable. We only stock the best products on the market. When it comes to training, you are our product - we want to make you the best responder you can be so you never have to wonder “what if...?”.

PracMed NZ Stop the Bleed®
NZ's Original Haemorrhage Control Course
To run this as a on-site private course, we require a training space with adequate room for practical activities. At any stage, half of the group will be working on partners lying on the ground - we need ample space for them to work safely. As it is quite practical, the room needs to be well ventilated.
We'll need two tables, enough chairs for the participants and space for the projector to display. We're happy to use your AV set up if you have one.
