HAVING PROBLEMS with online work completion ? The most common problem that we find students have from an IT point of view with the on-line learning packages is “browser” related. We recommend you use “chrome” as your browser and we highly recommend that you clear the cache before commencing. This requires you to go to the top right of your browser ( 3 little dots ) and select “more tools” and then “clear browsing data” selecting all 3 options ( Browsing history, cookies and cached images). If you have any further issues please contact us directly.

Assessment requirements

We normally use online assessments via the student Learner Portal for this unit. A smart phone or laptop, fully charged with internet access is generally required. It is the students responsibility to ensure they have such a device and have gained prior access to their Learner Portal. Information on accessing their portal is available on their Confirmation email

You will be required, as per the Training Package, to complete 2 mins of CPR on a CPR manikin. Participants will also be required to demonstrate various practical skills including application of slings etc

Course Duration

Pre-course study

We can transfer your registration free of charge (if due to COVID venue restriction)  only if we are notified the day before a course. Normal cancellation policies will apply if we are not contacted prior to the event.

We are taking all required steps to ensure everyone’s safety including ensuring 4sqm per person, removing tables, no breathes required when doing CPR, ample cleansing wipes, refusal of attendance for any participants presenting with flu or cold symptoms or those that should be self isolating.
