First Aid


The Skills Organisation holds standard setting responsibilities for first aid.

The Skills Organisation (Skills) holds gazetted coverage and is the standard setting body for first aid.

This is a natural fit as Skills is the current standard setting body for pre-hospital emergency care.

Education organisations with NZQA accreditation to train and assess first aid must continue to meet the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) following the transfer of standard-setting.
