Assessment Requirements for

UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from a live LV panel

 

UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from live LV panel standards are set for all Australian vocational accredited training providers. They must follow the assessment guidelines set out by The Australian Skills Quality Authority “promotes quality training so that students, employers, and industry can have confidence in Australia’s training sector”. (ASQA)

Attendance is required to demonstrate competence so we provide training at our venues in Ballina, Lismore. Alstonville and Byron Bay. We can also complete our courses onsite or at other venues in all Northern NSW or North Coast towns.

Private educational providers like International Paramedic CollegeThe Red Cross and St John Ambulancewe are fully regulated by The Australian Governments Skills Quality Authority (ASQEA) to provide the health and safety qualifications we deliver. Our regulation is through this national government accreditation body to provide professional courses and accredited qualifications like our CPR LVR Course UETTDRRF06 is recognised nationally as the standard requirement for training in Australia.

It is how training providers interpret and deliver the content that provides the learner with a quality training experience.

The Assessment Process – Introduction

 

Welcome to the assessment section of your course.

You have been provided with access to International Paramedic College’s course learning materials; it is expected that you have read and understood the content prior to starting the assessments.

We use a range of assessment methods to gather evidence of your knowledge and applied skills for the unit UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from a live LV panel. These are as follows:

Part A

 multiple-choice questions

 

Part B

 

Practical activities – your assessor observes you demonstrating required skills

Employability Skills

Employability Skills are embedded in the assessment tasks, this means the employment skills you are required to demonstrate during your participation are assessed at the same time as the other required skills and knowledge for the unit. A list of these skills is available with the Student Information for this course.

Competency Completion

You must successfully complete all assessment activities to be deemed competent.

Results

  1. Individual assessment tasks will be marked as:

 Satisfactory (S)                 Not yet Satisfactory (NYS)

  1. On the completion of all assessment tasks a final result will be given as:

Competent (C)                  Not yet competent (NYC)

You will be given the results to part A: Assessment Activity 1 automatically online or at the beginning of your face to face session and you will be given the opportunity to re-sit any tasks you did not satisfactorily complete at the end of the day.

Your assessor will give you feedback as you complete the assessment activities in Part B and, again, if you are not given a satisfactory outcome on the first attempt you will have the opportunity to re-sit these tasks at the end of the day.

Reasonable Adjustment – Learning difficulties

 Enrolment in this training requires participants to provide details on any learning or physical difficulties which may impact on their training outcomes. This may include any language, literacy or numeracy issues.

Discuss any special needs with your assessor who may be able to make any required, reasonable adjustment to the assessments to meet these needs. Please note the requirements under physical activity below.

Reasonable adjustment may include access to paper-based assessments due to technical or access issues to online assessment systems.

If it is necessary to provide reasonable adjustment to the assessments for individual students, you must mark on the students answer or observation sheets the adjustment which took place. However, all students must be physically able to remove a victim from contact with live conductors/apparatus

Physical Requirements

If you suffer an allergy to latex products please advise us. 

Practical activities involve training scenarios conducted at floor level and contact with other students/instructors. Please wear suitable clothing.

To drag a simulated patient clear of a live LV panel and preform CPR is a rigorous physical activity requiring you to compress the chest of a manikin downwards about a third of the chest depth continuously at 100 to 120 times a minute for a continuous period of 2 minutes. This requires a level of endurance, strength and fitness appropriate to this task. If you have current physical injuries, medical problems or limitations, please discuss this with your trainer. It is important that you don’t injure yourself or exacerbate an existing condition in training. 

If students have any learning or physical needs that make completing the tasks difficult, please discuss at the beginning of class to establish any reasonable adjustment we can make to the task to facilitate completion. However, please note we cannot adjust the need to perform a live rescue of a person of adult average body weight and conduct CPR

 

  Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the acknowledgement of competencies obtained through formal training, work experience and life experience. If you feel you are entitled to recognition please discuss with your assessor who will explain the process in detail. Please note:

  • you cannot be granted RPL for part of the unit, it must be for the entire unit
  • RPL does not apply if you are refreshing your training as recommended by Industry Standards – once every year for CPR and UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from a live LV panel.

More information on RPL is available here

Assessment Appeals

If you are unhappy with the result of an assessment, talk to your assessor first to see if can resolve the issue. However, if you are still not happy we have an Assessment Appeals Process, this can be accessed in our Student Handbook.

USI

From 1 January 2015 anyone undertaking nationally recognised training delivered by a Registered Training Organisation will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). If you have not yet applied for a USI you will need to do so prior to attending training with us. To apply or to check if you already have a USI number is a very quick and painless online process at the Australian Government website www.usi.gov.au . Follow the prompts as a student.  Click here to apply on-line or check your USI number

If you require help in obtaining one, please contact the office. If you are unable or choose not to provide an USI,  or have an exemption granted under the Student Identifiers Act 2014,  then your training outcome will not be recorded on your USI account and will not be available in future years as part of the authenticated USI transcript service.

 

Part A: Assessment Activity 1 -Questions and Answers

 

Instructions to students

There are two types of question in this assessment activity:

  • Short answer and/or multiple-choice questions (Numbers 1 to 9)
  • Multiple choice Questions (Numbers 11 to 20)

The questions included in this section are devised to test your knowledge of preforming a rescue from a live LV Panel.

Answer the short answer/multiple choice questions in the spaces provided after each question on the answer sheet or online. Mark your answer on the answer sheet provided or by selecting the appropriate answer online.

With the multiple-choice questions, read every question and all answer options carefully before making a decision as some questions have an ‘all of the above’ option to choose from. This option may or may not be correct.

To complete Part A satisfactorily you must answer all questions correctly.  

You can either

  • Complete the online assessment activities prior to your practical class. They will be automatically marked and any feedback provided to you by iMessage/email or on the day of your practical course from your assessor.
  • If for any reason you are unable to complete the online assessment activities prior to class, you will be given a paper copy to complete. This will be issued to you on the day of your class or can be emailed to you on request prior to your practical class
  • Complete online prior to receiving your certificate. Certificates are normally issued within 1 working day and only on successful completion of your assessment tasks.

If you do not get a question(s) correct the first time, you will have the opportunity to discuss the topic in class with your trainer and re-answer the question(s) at the end of class. Your trainer will give you another answer sheet if required or you may submit your corrections online or via email/iMessage

 

If you have any learning or physical needs that make reading or writing the answers to the questions difficult, please contact our office prior to class and we will discuss any reasonable adjustments we can make to facilitate you completing this task.

The time taken to complete this assessment will depend on your previous experience and qualification in relation to providing CPR and first aid, however, we estimate it will take between 45 minutes and one and a half hours.

If attempting paper-based assessments, please make sure you complete the Assessment Cover Sheet including making a statement regarding the work you submit being your own. This should be attached to the answer sheet on submission.

If you complete online assessments, you will be asked to declare a statement regarding the work you submit being your own.

Student Instructions

 

Please refer to the information in Part A: The Assessment Process – Introduction for general information on IPC’s assessment processes. Information is also included in the Student Handbook, available at https://www.internationalparamediccollege.com.au/student-information/ or a hard copy is available from your assessor.

As explained previously, we use a range of assessment methods to gather evidence of your knowledge and applied skills for the unit UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from a live LV panel.

In Part B, our assessment methods can be paper based or equivalent online tasks:

Part B

Practical activities – your assessor observes you demonstrating required skills

Part B- Practical Activities:  Student Instructions

 

You are to complete a series of practical assessments based on real life rescue situation. These will be completed during class time. You will be required to demonstrate performing a live rescue from a live LV Panel in accordance with legislative requirements and workplace procedures. Assessment will be conducted in your workplace simulating a live rescue and using workplace equipment.

Your assessor will use the Observation Checklists contained in this section or the online copy of the Assessment Guide to assess your performance as satisfactory or not yet satisfactory. You may refer to the Checklist during the trainer’s explanation and demonstration of the activity and while practicing the task, however, to ensure the assessment simulates a real life first aid response, you will be unable to reference it while demonstrating your skills in the assessment task.

The first three activities break the rescue procedures into three parts. In the final assessment, you will be required to demonstrate a complete rescue that encompasses the three sections previously demonstrated.

To achieve competency for the unit, you must complete all tasks satisfactorily. If you do not achieve this on the first attempt, your assessor will ensure you have the time to practice the task again and will observe you when you feel confident to undertake the assessment again.

Reasonable Adjustment – Learning difficulties

 Enrolment in this training requires participants to provide details on any learning or physical difficulties which may impact on their training outcomes. This may include any language, literacy or numeracy issues.

Discuss any special needs with your assessor who may be able to make any required, reasonable adjustment to the assessments to meet these needs. Please note the requirements under physical activity below.

Reasonable adjustment may include access to paper-based assessments due to technical or access issues to online assessment systems.

If it is necessary to provide reasonable adjustment to the assessments for individual students, you must mark on the students answer or observation sheets the adjustment which took place. However, all students must be physically able to remove a victim from contact with live conductors/apparatus
