Refresher Information:
To remain compliant with Health and Safety legislation and industry 'good practice' guidelines, students are generally required to refresh their training every two years. When booking a refresher course, Safety ’n Action will require evidence of the student's NZQA record of achievement displaying the relevant unit standard/s to the course they are attending. On successful completion of the course, the student's Go Safe card will be updated and reissued with a new refresher date.

If students are unable to provide us with this information, they will need to attend a full course to gain the unit standard/s.
