No Online Workbook or E-learning Required

For an effective, efficient, and convenient learning experience, First Aid Pro Perth has created streamlined learning materials to minimise the stress of online learning. Hence, self-directed, and self-paced mandatory pre-course reading, and quiz requirements have been put in place for the ease of participants to complete prior to the practical session and bring it to the training session. While designed to be helpful and easy to understand, the actual study hours required for the pre-course reading and initial quiz will vary from person to person. Most importantly, it depends on the existing knowledge, skills, and experience of the participants.
