Updated advice on the delivery of first aid

23 June 2022

The AISC wishes to advise Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) of the following advice in relation to the delivery of first aid training.

On 30th May 2022 the First Aid IRC discussed the current reasonable adjustment following a request from the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) to reconsider the current advice. From these discussions the First Aid IRC has advised the Australian Industry and Skills Committee that all reasonable adjustments implemented during the pandemic should be removed before the 1st of September 2022. 

This means that training and assessment activities undertaken during First Aid and CPR courses will revert to pre-covid conditions.

All RTOs delivering first aid training must review this advice which is available in full on the AISC website AISC news.
