Simple Instruction’s – Apply First Aid Training Course

The Questions?

Some people have asked: What will I be learning on the day? Are Simple Instruction’s courses accredited and recognised in all industries? Is the the Apply First Aid Certificate the same as my previous Senior First Aid Certificate?

The Answers.

Simple Instruction ABN 86307908724 is a co-provider, and our Apply First Aid and Perform CPR  training courses  are conducted under the auspices and in partnership with Allens Training Pty Ltd Pty Ltd RTO 90909 (ABN 63 114 756 857) which are VETAB accredited. This accreditation is recognised Australia wide and in all industries. The confusion between the Apply First Aid and Senior First Aid is that the name has changed and nothing else. By participating and satisfactorily completing Simple Instruction’s First Aid training course you will receive an Apply First Aid certificate (formerly Senior First Aid).
