Quality training is good for everyone

Healthcare training is one of the best ways to build your career as you make a difference to people’s lives.

Ongoing training enables you to:

  • keep up to date with changes in the industry
  • meet others in the same line of work
  • share experiences and learn different ways of handling difficulties
  • have fun while you learn new skills!

Amida Training provides high quality training in a friendly, supportive, encouraging environment. We hold both public and in-house courses.

You can choose to take on a National Certificate in Community Support Services, Core Competencies or Foundation Skills, or you can revise particular unit standards one at a time.

If you are an employer or agency, we can offer you tailored induction and training programmes. 

It is essential the industry is staffed by professionally trained people who understand compliance requirements, standards of care, and the spiritual, emotional, mental, and social needs of clients from a range of cultures and backgrounds.


This website is aimed at both students and employers.

All courses offered through Amida are accredited with NZQA, and support staff to achieve qualifications by building up unit standards. These courses are designed to support community services where releasing staff for training, over a large geographical area can prove costly for an organisation as well as cause logistical difficulties in maintaining a service. Each course has an associated workbook, available for download.

Flexible solutions are available for busy organisations and busy individuals. The training can be done anywhere at any time, reducing the costs to release staff for training and can help meet compliance needs. The E learning courses use cutting edge technology and are very user friendly. To find out more go to www.3SpiritNZ.com
