DOC has organised a first aid course for staff for 6-7th March and would like to extend the invitation to your conservation groups to send a relevant member. We will fully sponsor 6 positions. The usual cost is $130 plus GST for the 1 day course and $225 plus GST for the 2 day course.
The 1 day refresher course is on the 6th only. Participants will need to do the 2 day course if their current certificate has expired. They are good for 2 years but a few months over is usually fine to do the refresher. If participants need unit standards reported to NZQA then there is a $30-$40 plus GST reporting fee depending on which units they require. This needs to be paid by the individuals but is not necessary to get the certificate.
Venue : DOC office 99 Sala St
Date: 6-7 March
Time: 9 – 4.30
Bring: Lunch and your current certificate if you can
Wear: clothing suitable for outdoor scenarios
To register your interest contact Angaline on 349 7400 mornings or e-mail (she is copied into this).
We have limited places and will share the opportunity among the groups as much as possible.
