Unique Student Identifier (USI)     

In order to complete any vocational education course in Australia, it is a requirement for you to obtain and supply a USI.

This is obtainable from usi.gov.au

If a USI is not supplied and verified with www.usi.gov.au a certificate cannot be issued to you.


Course requirements

There are no pre requisites, entry or work placement, licensing or certification requirements for this course.


If you are under 18 years of age

It is a requirement that parental/guardian consent is obtained for students under the age of 18 to be able to participate in a course.


Physical requirements

It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training.

The HLTAID003 Provide First Aid competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide first aid and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life.

One requirement of the training package is that you are to be assessed as physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor. There can be no exceptions to these Australian Government requirements that are clearly written into the Training Package.

Therefore, students who are unable to satisfy the physical requirements of the course cannot be deemed competent or issued with a statement of attainment, even if the qualification is a necessary part of their employment conditions.


Course structure

The pre course theory will be completed online in an unsupervised pre course study of 2-5 hrs.

You will then attend a trainer led face to face session for skills practice and assessment. The face to face session has a duration of 5.5 hrs.
