Training and assessment arrangements:
This accredited course is delivered in one session of two (2) hours, or until learners have displayed competency.
Practical learning is delivered in a mixed modality of on-line thoery and face to face practicum, with competencies determined progressively throughout the course by the observation of learners participating in course activities.
Our First Aid educator observes the participants application of skills and knowledge throughout the face to face practical session, during simulated emergency scenarios, contextualised to the candidate's workplace/community settings, and other skill stations. CPR assessment requires candidates to perform at least two (2) minutes of single rescuer uninterrupted CPR on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor and an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface.
While applicants must possess functional written and spoken English skills, we make adjustment for learners requesting support in undertaking the theory assessment during the practical session.
