First Aid Technique

COVID-19 Update - Traffic Light System

Following the transition to the Covid Protection Framework, MediTrain has been able to provide training nationwide. MediTrain is a Tertiary Education Provider (and our students are in close proximity) so we are subject to greater restrictions than other businesses.

We are taking extra hygiene measures (such as thorough cleaning of manikins and hand-washing) to ensure everyone's safety. We will be offering First Aid courses in accordance with government requirements under the Traffic Light System. We note that this will require all students to show a vaccine pass at Red Light, and all our instructors are vaccinated. See here for our student guidelines.
