After successful completion of the eLearning component for Nursing, Medical and Tertiary MHFA courses you are eligible to attend a half-day face-to-face course then attempt the MHFAider Assessment. You must do this within 3 months of completing the eLearning component. If you successfully pass, you will gain an MHFAider accreditation valid for 3 years.
From the 31 March 2017, Nursing, Medical and Tertiary will become one course called Blended MHFA for Tertiary Students. As a student of any of these courses, you can attend a Tertiary face-to-face course then attempt the MHFAider Assessment.
