Do you offer support for language, literacy and numeracy issues?

A Statement of Attainment will be issued for the units upon your completing the first aid training and assessment.

Do you offer Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?

RPL is available on a case by case basis. Please speak with the instructor prior to booking and discuss your situation.  You would need to show suitable evidence of past learning, such as a current nursing or medical qualification, or a recent certificate from a recognized RTO.  In all cases the theory assessment and CPR assessment must be undertaken, regardless of any previous experience or qualifications.

Do you have a code of conduct?

Acceptable behavior and standard of dress is required.  You will be practicing the recovery position on fellow students, and you must at all times adhere to the instructors directions.  Unacceptable and / or dangerous behavior which causes risk to yourself and / or others will cause your removal from the first aid training course without refund.
