CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
COVID-19 Update: 24th August 2022
Accredited Short Courses essential service and still able to deliver short courses.
We are actively monitoring advice from the Australian Government, the Chief Medical Office and the Australian First Aid Training Council in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and precautions we must put in place to ensure client health and safety in our classes.
The First Aid IRC has advised the Australian Industry and Skills Committee that all reasonable adjustments implemented during the pandemic should be removed before the 1st of September 2022.
Thus, all RTOs must deliver first aid courses under pre covid assessment requirements. No modifications can be made to the way assessments must be completed.
Though, we still recommend students to wear masks in classes and we continue to maintain our sanitising practices after use of all equipment or after working in pairs.
HOW ARE WE MEETING GOVERNMENT & COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS?
We have implemented stringent hygiene practices:
hand washing / sanitising (20 second hand washing) before and after entering the class
hand washing / sanitising after touching any equipment
handwashing / sanitising is also enforced if a learner touches any personal belongings, such as a mobile phone, in the class environment
sanitised surfaces and equipment with antibacterial sprays
When you must not attend?
We ask that anyone contact us or postpone coming to one of our classes if they have been in contact with any person with suspected or diagnosed COVID-19, or if they themselves are feeling unwell.
Any client who attends a class with flu like symptoms will be asked by the trainer to leave. We must ensure exclusion of anyone showing signs of being sick in our classes, for the safety of our staff and everyone else attending the training session.
Sick clients should reschedule once they have medical clearance
