First aid training
Staff who enrol in a first aid course and have their fees paid for by the University are expected to nominate and act as a University First Aider.
Appropriate courses provided in-house, and recognised by the University, include:
Provide First Aid (1 day face-to-face with pre-work required) - HLTAID011
Certificate valid for 3 years as long as annual CPR updates are completed.
Perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) (3 hrs) - HLTAID009
Must be completed annually to ensure the First Aid certificate remains valid.
First Aid Refresher (1 day)
Prerequisites: a current First Aid qualification obtained within the last 3 years, plus a current CPR update attained within the last 12 months.
Offered to eligible Churchill staff every two years (even numbered years).
In-house training dates
Registered University First Aiders will be advised when dates for in-house courses have been arranged. If places are still available after First Aiders have registered, a FedNews item will advise other staff that vacancies for in-house training exist.
Suggested external providers
If in-house dates don't suit, staff can enrol with an external provider. Course fees may be covered by the School/Department.
