First aid focused reviews

In 2013, NZQA undertook focused reviews of all first aid providers who underwent an external evaluation and review (EER) between September 2009 and July 2012. 

The reviews were undertaken to assure the public that organisations are complying with the first aid training requirements, First Aid as a Life Skill (PDF, 60KB), and the Consent to assess against standards on the Directory of Assessment Standards Rules 2011.

Findings and further actions arising from the reviews are summarised in a letter to the sector from NZQA's Chief Executive, Karen Poutasi.

The reviews are part of a wider process of ensuring consistent delivery of standards and training requirements for the first aid sector.

Below are pdf copies of the reports. Following the findings of the focused reviews, PTEs were required to take action to ensure compliance. Statements of compliance pdfs are listed alongside the corresponding report.
