A high­light at Ao­raki for Ben was hav­ing a story he wrote pub­lished by in­ter­na­tional me­dia.

He ex­posed peo­ple who were falsely reg­is­ter­ing their ve­hi­cles as am­bu­lances to get the sig­nif­i­cant cost dis­counts.

‘‘The guardian in Eng­land picked it up from the ODT, who got it from the ‘Ao­raki Newsline’ page - a blog where we post all of our sto­ries [http://newsline.it­maru.org.nz/].’’

As part of the Di­ploma, stu­dents com­plete work ex­pe­ri­ence with a me­dia out­let.

‘‘I com­pleted my work ex­pe­ri­ence at the ODT in Dunedin.

‘‘It worked out fairly well - they of­fered me a job and now I’m a full time jour­nal­ist for the ODT in Oa­maru.

‘‘I couldn’t pass up the op­por­tu­nity and Ao­raki are sup­port­ing me to fin­ish my Di­ploma by cor­re­spon­dence.

‘‘Ao­raki equip you with the knowl­edge you need in the in­dus­try and I am con­stantly re­fer­ring back to what I learnt at Ao­raki.

‘‘The tu­tor is ex­cel­lent and his con­nec­tions within the in­dus­try in­valu­able.

‘‘It’s a re­ward­ing pro­gramme and peo­ple get jobs at the end of it - which is not al­ways the case with some qual­i­fi­ca­tions.’’

First Aid So­lu­tions as part of the Med­i­train group have been ser­vic­ing Otago, South­land and Cen­tral for the past 8 years. At First Aid So­lu­tions we be­lieve that ev­ery­one should have a sim­ple work­ing knowl­edge of First Aid.

First Aid So­lu­tions pro­vide a com­pre­hen­sive range of first aid train­ing cour­ses from Ba­sic Life Sup­port (CPR) to Work­place First Aid, Child­care First Aid to ad­vanced train­ing for Health Pro­fes­sion­als and other groups so that they can pro­vide ad­vanced Pre-hospi­tal Emer­gency Care when re­quired. Our Values: We only use qual­ity ma­te­ri­als All our in­struc­tors have worked in the emer­gency ser­vices sys­tem Prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence on the man­nequins makes YOU feel com­plete and con­fi­dent ’See­ing, Hear­ing & do­ing’ is the most ef­fec­tive way of learn­ing. We guar­an­tee to make learn­ing First Aid a re­laxed, en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence.

First Aid So­lu­tions First Aid train­ing cour­ses can be tai­lored to the par­tic­u­lar needs of your busi­ness and can take place at our train­ing fa­cil­i­ties or at your premises. We of­fer full work­place cour­ses in one day. This is more cost ef­fec­tive for em­ploy­ers and more ef­fi­cient man­age­ment of time.

Our staff in­clude pro­fes­sion­als in the PreHospi­tal Emer­gency Care field - this al­lows us to of­fer a range of cour­ses that cover many as­pects of ad­vanced care as well.
