Every so often the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) undergo a series of reviews that may result in the release of new versions of the HLT Health Training Package.

What are the changes?
HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation, HLTAID011 Provide First Aid and HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting will include some new content and assessment tasks.
Why are these changes being made?
Due to ongoing medical research, legislative change, and continual improvement strategies, course content and learning outcomes need to be flexible and adaptable to change. Our courses are always providing you with the latest information and techniques.
What happens to my current first aid certificate with the old course codes?
Your Statement of Attainment will still be valid for its full duration until it expires, or you are due for an update. You will not need to redo the course until you are due for renewal.
Will the timings still be the same?
Yes, course duration will be the same as we have integrated the new requirements into our existing course structure.
Can I still complete some of my course online?
Yes, we are still able to offer our immersive online courses combined with short duration practical assessment, or if you prefer, you can still undertake a course through the traditional face-to-face method, with no online course required.
Is my qualification still current?
Here’s what you need to know if you’ve already completed your first aid course prior to these changes:
HLTAID001 Will remain recognised and valid for 12 months from the date of your course
HLTAID002 Will remain recognised and valid for 3 years from the date of your course
HLTAID003 Will remain recognised and valid for 3 years from the date of your course
HLTAID004 Will remain recognised and valid for 3 years from the date of your course
Will the new courses be more expensive?
No, we will maintain our current pricing structure.
