Effective Tuesday 4 August 2020
Despite Stage 4 Restrictions in Victoria, our First Aid courses are still running in Melbourne!
Victorians are allowed outside their homes for the following reasons:
- Necessary goods and services
- Medical care and compassionate reasons
- Education if necessary
Our First Aid courses are necessary education, as they are a requirement for people employed in these frontline industries:
- Clinical Health and Biomedical Science
- Aged and Disability Care
It's vital during this COVID-19 pandemic that our students have clarity regarding our First Aid Training Courses.
We continue to operate inline with government guidelines.
Read the guidelines set down by our regulator regarding face-to-face training.
We continue to make every attempt to safeguard the health and safety of our staff and students by implementing additional hygiene measures.
Since Monday 16th March 2020 we have implemented the following hygiene measures;
Students are required to bring their own personal hand sanitiser for use during class to:
- Reduce common touchpoint surfaces
- Mitigate against cross-infection
- Mitigate against the potential for short supply given the unreliable supply chains for bulk PPE at this time
- Single-use examination gloves available for practical assessments
- New bandages available for use during practical demonstrations
- Thorough hand washing required prior to course commencement and at break time/s
- Reasonable adjustments made to practical assessment to avoid student contact during practical demonstrations per the recent Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Covid-19 update.
- All surfaces thoroughly cleaned before and after every course
- Antibacterial wipes issued for use during the course
- Reduced class sizes in line with social distancing rule of one person per four square metres
Rest assured we have always set the benchmark in practising industry-leading hygiene measures. At this time, we do so with added vigilance.
