Entry Requirements

It is recommended that students have sufficient literacy, numeracy and visual interpretation skills to successfully complete the course.

There is no pre-requisite for this unit. Recommended for students over 14yrs only. It is important to note that 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 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.
