Introducing the new first aid units of competency

Every 5 years a review of the first aid units of competency occurs to ensure training is in line with workforce needs and expectations.

On 12 August 2020 the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) endorsed the release of new versions of first aid units of competency within the HLT Health Training Package. The Industry Reference Committee (IRC) for first aid is responsible for the national training package relevant to resuscitation and the provision of first aid. As Vice-Chair of the IRC, our Managing Director Phillipa Wilson, has with other committee members made a significant contribution to the development of the new units and she is very clear about the changes and requirements Premium Health has to undertake to train in the new units.

These updates have been made to reflect industry best practice, expectations and current regulations and were released on in November 2020.
