Mask wearing is an effective COVID-19 safety measure

In the interest of public health and safety and to reduce the risk of cross contamination due to COVID-19, it is advisable to bring along your own hand sanitiser.

If you're unable to, you would need to wash your hands at intervals during the course.

We also recommend where possible, social distancing and wearing face masks.

Our COVID Safe Plan

It's vital for your First Aid training, to have clarity regarding COVID-19 safe practises.

To begin with, we confirm that, notwithstanding announcements from the Prime Minister, we continue to operate in line with government guidelines.

Direct quote from the Australian Quality Skills Authority (ASQA) web site:

“RTOs can continue to deliver in a face-to-face environment”

We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our staff and students and have implemented additional hygiene measures.

Since 16 March 2020, we have implemented the following hygiene measures:

  • All students are required to bring their own personal hand sanitiser to reduce risk of cross contamination. Where a student is unable to do so, hand washing will be mandatory at prescribed intervals during the course.
  • Single-use examination gloves issued in some locations for practical assessments
  • New bandages issued to students for use during practical demonstrations
  • Thorough hand-washing required prior to course commencement and after any breaks
  • Reasonable adjustments made to practical assessment per Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines
  • Anti-bacterial wipes are used to thoroughly clean all surfaces before, during, and after every course, and are issued to students for use during the course

Since 25 March 2020, we have implemented the following additional measure:

  • Reduced class sizes

Australia Wide First Aid has always practised industry-leading hygiene measures and, at this time, we continue to do so with added vigilance.
