|Opt-in pre-approval for newly endorsed first aid units of competency
The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) endorsed the release of new versions of eight first aid units of competency within the HLT Health Training Package.
Given the high number of RTOs with superseded first aid units explicitly listed on their scope of registration, ASQA is offering an alternative application process to eligible RTOs. Under this process, new units will only be added to an RTO’s scope if they already have the related superseded unit on their scope of registration. All pre-approved RTOs have been invited directly with instructions of how to opt-in to apply for the new first aid units. For eligible RTOs, the opportunity to opt-in closes 1st November 2020.
RTOs that were not pre-approved to opt-in have been notified individually that they may apply for the new units through asqanet. RTOs will have 12 months to transition out of using the superseded first aid units.
