01 July 2023

The packaging rules for 28 qualifications and two skill sets (listed below) have now been updated. This will mean that from 1 July 2023, RTOs can only deliver HLTINF006 - Apply basic principles and practices of infection prevention and control or HLTINF007 - Implement and monitor infection prevention and control standards, policies and procedures. Superseded qualifications remain unchanged.
