Entry Requirements

  • There are no pre-requisites for this course.
  • Learners must be aged 18 years or older.
  • Language, literacy and numeracy skills required to interpret legislative requirements and to undertake written and practical assessment activities.

Note:

  • The HLTAID 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. 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 cardiopulmonary 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. Edunex alternatively will issue a Certificate of Attendance/participation.
  • As recommended by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines, First Aid training should be renewed every 3 years. However, the CPR component should be renewed every 12 months.
