NUSA offers discount Senior First Aid courses through BusinessWise First Aid Training. We organise many courses throughout the year and offer them cheap for our members. Senior First Aid is extremely important for Nursing students, and any other student who requires the qualification for their job or their degree.
NUSA offers subsidised Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) qualifications through Reach for Training. This qualification is essential for students who are looking for part-time work in areas where you will be expected to serve alcohol. We are proud to offer this course to students so that it is less cost-prohibitive.
Responsible Conduct of Gambling (RCG) is sometimes required to work at venues that provide gambling services such as poker machines. Having this qualification can also make a student's job application more competitive in hospitality environments. We also offer a combination RSA/RCG course for students who wish to have both qualifications.

Booking a course
You can book a course by coming to the NUSA Building and asking our friendly staff for assistance. We can set you up with everything you will need right there and then.
Things you will need
You will need to come to the NUSA Building to get your course registration and any relevant course materials. You will also need to register for a Unique Student Identifier (USI) so that you can be formally awarded your qualification. We provide more detailed instructions about how to do this when you come and see us in the NUSA Building.
1Does NUSA offer any other courses?
We have held different kinds of subsidised courses in the past, such as Mental Health First Aid. We may offer different courses in the future. Our best advice would be to keep an eye on our News section and Facebook page!
2I can't make any of the dates displayed. Can you offer a different date?
Generally, no. Under some circumstances, we may open up more course dates, dependent on demand. Let us know about your interest, and we will let you know.
3Why did the course costs go up?
NUSA exists on a shoestring budget, and we need to carefully prioritise what student services we offer year-to-year. As a consequence of different funding arrangements with the University, and the cost of the courses to NUSA, we have had to increase the price of each course a little bit. Rest assured that this is still significantly cheaper than you will be able to find anywhere else!
4Can I register/pay for the course online?
Unfortunately, no. We are unable to verify your student status online, and there is important information that we need to go through with you in person. You will also receive materials that you need to study before the course! Come into the NUSA Building and our friendly staff will sort you out.
5Do you use legitimate and credible course providers?
Yes! We are confident that Reach for Training and BusinessWise First Aid can offer you a professional and credible qualification in the course you choose to undertake. You can find out more about the provider on their website.
