The codes which identify First Aid Training Courses are changing from July 1st 2021.
These are the changes.
HLTAID001 - PROVIDE CPR (becomes HLTAID009)
This is the standard course that provides full training in all aspects of learning how to apply CPR. The new code for this course is HLTAID009.
HLTAID003 - PROVIDE FIRST AID (becomes HLTAID011)
This is the standard comprehensive first aid course that includes all of the above CPR training. The new code for this course is HLTAID011.
HLTAID004 - PROVIDE FIRST AID IN EDUCATION & CHILD CARE (becomes HLTAID012)
This is similar to the first aid course above but has different materials and emphasis for people who work in education and childcare. The new code for this course is HLTAID012.
Note: It is the last 3 numbers of the course codes which are changing.
What you really need to know about these new course codes.
The most important thing to recognise is that all EXISTING first aid certificates remain valid for their original duration.
So, if you have an existing qualification in First Aid, CPR or Child Care First Aid for example, that was due to expire in 6 months time, you do not have to retrain until just before the certificate’s original expiry date occurs.
Now you may not remember the name or code of the first aid course you originally did, and which course code applies but all you do have to remember is that the new codes DO NOT affect existing qualifications.
However for any new training commencing after July 1st, these new course codes will apply.
(This is a government run system of course codes and the new codes reflect some modifications to the content of the courses, but again that does not make the old course invalid.)
If you are confused about any aspect of these new first aid training course codes or don’t know which qualification you currently have or which course you should do, don’t hesitate to call our friendly team at Results First Aid Training on 1300 661 065.
