  • Still the pre-req for various courses and employment (Patrol Captains, Instructors Award, Regional Guard, Beach Ed)
  • NZQA Units 6400, 6401, 6402

Level 2:

  • Defibrillator, O2, monitoring

  • Not a pre-req for courses, but sought after for employment opportunities
  • NZQA Units 25411, 1447

Level 3:
