Update on HLTAID first aid units

school kidsOn Tuesday 27 May 2014 the VRQA received advice from the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council (CS & HISC) regarding the HLTAID first aid units.

The advice is that CS & HISC are reviewing the current first aid units and that changes to these units will also undergo public consultation.

As a result of CS & HISC’s advice the transition period for the following first aid units has now been extended to 31 October 2014:

 

HLT07 unit

 (now superseded)

HLT replacement unit

(transition by 31 October 2014)

HLTCPR211A HLTAID001
HLTFA211A HLTAID002
HLTFA311A  HLTAID003
New unit HLTAID004
HLTFA302C HLTAID005
HLTFA412A HLTAID006
HLTFA404C HLTAID007

 

Please note that the newly endorsed HLTAID008 unit transition timeframe is not affected by any of the proposed changes and will transition on 30 June 2014.

The VRQA will continue to update Registered Training Organisations of any further advice as it arises.
