HAVING PROBLEMS with online work completion ? The most common problem that we find students have from an IT point of view with the on-line learning packages is “browser” related. We recommend you use “chrome” as your browser and we highly recommend that you clear the cache before commencing. This requires you to go to the top right of your browser ( 3 little dots ) and select “more tools” and then “clear browsing data” selecting all 3 options ( Browsing history, cookies and cached images). If you have any further issues please contact us directly.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Traveling thru Sydney during this lockdown for first aid training is not recommended – there are better and safer options.  

Unfortunately ALL our Sydney venues are closed due to the COVID Lockdown till the end of July. We feel that the risk of moving thru Sydney unnecessarily is simply too great for our trainers and students.

You can complete our online option for CPR and First Aid at home and avoid traveling during this Lock-down. 

 

 

Do not attend any courses if you are required to be Self-Isolating as per NSW Dept of Health or have any cold / flu symptoms
