Public Course Bookings

By enrolling in a training course with Paradise First Aid, you agree to the following terms and conditions.

Fees and Refunds
No refunds are available for cancellations less than 7 days prior to training.

Cancellations, where more than 7 days notice has been provided, will receive a refund of course fees less a $10.00 processing fee.

A 25% rebooking fee will automatically be charged in the following situations.

1. You cancel or reschedule your training for whatever reason with less than 24 hours notice
2. You fail to attend your scheduled training
3. You reschedule your training more than once giving 24 hours notice

In the event that Paradise First Aid is unable to provide the detailed training, you will be offered an alternative date with no penalty or a full refund of your course fees. Although we are required to provide this information to you, it is extremely rare that we would ever cancel your course.

Late Arrivals
Unfortunately, if you arrive late for whatever reason, you will be unable to attend the training session. A 25% rebooking fee will be required to book an alternative date.

Physical Requirements
Please note that first aid competency standards do require a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be a risk to life. You will be required to undertake activities on the floor. This includes performing two minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult and baby CPR manikin.

Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.

In cases where a student has attended a resuscitation or first aid course but is unable to meet the full requirements of the competency, Paradise First Aid may wish to provide that student with a certificate of attendance, or similar, as an indication of their participation in the course.

If you feel that you have any current health issues which would prevent you from undertaking such activities, you must contact us prior to your course to discuss the options available to you.

Certificate Issuing Policy
For certification in your chosen course, you are required to attend 100% of your training and successfully demonstrate competence in all assessment activities. An A4 colour certificate (PDF) will be emailed to you following successful completion. You will also receive a plastic wallet card certificate detailing the training you have completed. If you are attending training at our Helensvale facility on a weekday, you will receive your wallet card and PDF certificate on the day. If you are attending training at our Mermaid Beach facility or during the weekend at Helensvale, your wallet card and PDF certificate will be processed by our head office and sent to you following training. This may take up to 10 days to receive. Please allow this time before contacting us to follow up. Should you require a printed copy of your certificate a $5.00 fee is applicable. This will be an exact copy of the certificate you receive by email.

Educational Support
Enrolment in this training requires participants to provide details on any learning or physical difficulties which may impact on their training outcomes. This may include any language, literacy or numeracy issues. If you believe that you require any educational support, please speak with us prior to training. If this information is not disclosed prior to your course, we may ask you to reschedule at a time where further support may be provided.
