How do I ensure that the help screen is the first thing a user sees before navigating the tour ?

You can use the "Call actions on tour events"-plugin to display the helpscreen, but the name of the action to be called depends on the controlbar you are using in your project.
For example, when using the "Sans Controlbar" the action to call would be: "SansControlBardisplayHelp();"
So search in the "<your-project-name>_skin.xml"-file for an action that is named something like "<XY>displayHelp" and use that with the advanced "Call custom code"-function on the Tourstart-event.

My action name is controlBar_classic1displayHelp. I dont have the call custom code option in the advanced section of the call actions on tour events.

That action has become standard with the current version 2.5.13 of PTP. If you use an old version you have to install it first, please have a look at the install instructions which are slightly different for plugins and for actions:
