Grid Skills course acceptance guidelines
Some Grid Skills courses require ngā ākonga (learners) to have met certain prerequisites – they need to have successfully completed other Grid Skills training, and hold current First Aid and CPR certificates, or qualifications from other external training providers. Any prerequisite requirements will be listed in the description for each training course.
Grid Skills reserves the right to deny training requests. For example, if the ākonga (learner) doesn't hold the necessary prerequisites, or if Grid Skills needs everyone in the session to have the same level of knowledge or ability for safety reasons. If training is denied, Grid Skills will let the Learner know why.
