The AISC (Australian Industry & Skills Committee) wishes to advise Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) of the following advice in relation to the delivery of first aid training.

On the 30th May 2022, the first aid IRC (Industry Reference Committee) discussed the current reasonable adjustments implemented for the global pandemic following a request from the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) to reconsider the current advice. From these discussions, the first aid IRC has advised AISC that all reasonable adjustments implemented during the pandemic should be removed before the 01st of September 2022. This means that training and assessment activities undertaken during First Aid and CPR courses will revert to pre-covid conditions.
