What you need to bring along on the day of your first aid training

Physical Requirements 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. Please speak with us prior to training if you have any concerns.
Please note that first aid competency standards do require a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life. You will be required to undertake activities on the floor. This includes performing two minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult and baby CPR manikin.
Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first-aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.
You will need to have sufficient English language skills to complete the competency-based first aid training and understand instruction in English.
If you feel that you have any current health or learning issues which would prevent you from undertaking such activities, you must contact us prior to your course to discuss the options available to you.
