                       released in November
                       2012.
Overview

Background to Companion Volumes
In 2010, the National Quality Council accepted recommendations in the VET Training
Products for the 21st Century report. Two of those recommendations were specifically to do
with the design of training packages:

    1. Simplify and streamline the content of Training Packages by separating the
         performance standards in units of competence from guidance and supporting
         information for RTOs and

    2. Restructure and streamline training package content by:

    •    Simplifying the endorsed components
    •    Expanding the non-endorsed components
    •    Eliminating unnecessary information and consolidating repetitive material.

In November 2012, the National Skills Standards Council (NSSC) published new Standards
for Training Packages which set out new requirements in full. You can view a copy of the
new Standards for Training Packages on the NSSC
website www.nssc.natese.gov.au/training_packages/standards_and_policies

Endorsed and Non-Endorsed Components
There are four endorsed components of Training Packages, all of which can be found on the
national register training.gov.au

In addition, the non-endorsed components have been expanded to include Companion
Volumes, including the following:

    •    The Companion Volume Implementation Guide is a mandatory requirement and is
         available at www.cshisc.com.au. It contains overview information about the entire
         Training Package, including a list of all units, skills sets and qualifications in the
         training package. It also contains key implementation information for use by RTOs.
    •    Optional guides and resources to assist implementation in specific industry sectors.
         For the new HLT First Aid units, this includes a First Aid Companion Volume
         containing advice regarding the intent and implementation of these new units

Feedback and Contributions
In time, these Companion Volumes will provide an opportunity to showcase best practice
from RTOs and provide a forum for sharing information and resources. If you have any
resources, case studies or feedback to contribute to the Companion Volumes, please
provide your feedback via the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council
(CS&HISC) Continuous Improvement Feedback Register.

Overview of Changes
The new HLTAID First Aid competency standards were developed to provide a set of robust,
industry supported standards for people employed as first aiders and those with a duty of
care to provide first aid to others. This includes workers with duty of care for vulnerable
clients, child care educators, teachers, emergency services personnel, workers in hazardous
environments and nominated workplace first aiders.

In these instances, the statement of attainment provides evidence to the employer and the
community that the worker has the skills and knowledge to be able to provide a first aid
response and sustain life in the event of an emergency.

Why has CS&HISC changed the competencies?
CS&HISC was required to update the units in line with the new Standards for Training
Packages. The new standards focus on strengthening assessment requirements and require
specific information relating to the volume and frequency of evidence required for the
assessment decision. In addition, feedback submissions from peak associations, employers
and training providers indicated a need to improve the quality and consistency of first aid
training, particularly for workers who have responsibility and duty of care for clients and co-
workers. Assessment of these units must:

    •    meet the requirements of the training package
    •    be conducted in accordance with the principles of assessment and rules of evidence
    •    meet workplace and regulatory requirements
    •    be systematically validated.

RTOs must determine and develop the learning and assessment strategies appropriate to
their course. RTOs must also ensure that assessment meets the requirements of NVR/AQTF

Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council                                  Page 5 of 42

standards. Compliance issues should be discussed directly with the relevant VET Regulator
(ASQA/VRQA/WATAC).

CS&HISC has produced a range of video resources to assist RTOs use the new Units and
Assessment Requirements. They are available on our YouTube channel

First Aid Guide Companion Volume – Release 1.2
Transition
The new first aid units are used in the new Children’s & Youth Services (CHC Community
Services Training Package) and the new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker
(HLT Health Training Package) qualifications. As the rest of the qualifications in the CHC08
Community Services and HLT07 Health Training Package are reviewed, they will be
progressively updated to contain the new first aid units. This is also the case for providers
delivering vocational qualifications from other industry sectors.

RTOs issuing qualifications for vocational courses must ensure they meet the packaging
rules of the qualification they are delivering. In addition, they must ensure the first aid unit
being delivered and assessed is the one listed in the qualification, whether in the core or
electives. CS&HISC recommends consulting with your First Aid training provider for advice
on any mapping or documentation you will need to ensure compliance to the standards, and
what gap training will be required.

If a student has completed a first aid course through a third party provider and the statement
of attainment they have received does not match the unit required to meet the packaging
rules of the qualification they are undertaking, the RTO issuing the vocational qualification
must:

1. undertake a mapping exercise to confirm elements, performance criteria, required skills
    and required knowledge have been addressed and identify any gaps

2. conduct gap training as necessary

3. issue the required statement of attainment

Note: CS&HISC has developed a number of mapping tools to assist RTOs in this process.
These are provided in this Guide on page 19.

Normal transition and teach out periods apply. If you have questions regarding
transition and teach out arrangements, you must contact your relevant VET Regulator
(ASQA, WATAC or VRQA).

Specific advice for First Aid RTOs
First Aid RTOs with one or more of the HLTFA units explicitly listed on their scope of
registration must apply to their VET Regulator before October 30th 2014 to add the new
HLTAID unit/s to their scope if they intend to deliver the replacement units. Providers are
reminded that they must comply with the transition and teach out requirements of their VET
Regulator (ASQA, VRQA or WA TAC)

ASQA has also produced a Fact Sheet: Registering for revised training packages to assist
RTOs with the process www.asqa.gov.au/media-and-publications).

The First Aid units of competency have been developed specifically for a workplace context
and apply to those workers who have a duty of care as a First Aider under the Workplace
Health and Safety Act 2011 and Safe work Australia Model Code of Practice - First Aid in the
Workplace. These units of competency may be used by RTOs for training for the wider
community, however, all aspect of the competency must be met by participants, where this is
not possible, for health or other reasons, RTOs cannot and should not issue a Statement of
Attainment, however, a Statement of Attendance for the course could be issued.

It is the responsibility of each provider to monitor training packages relevant to its scope of
registration and to identify when a qualification or unit of competency on scope has been
revised and a new version published. The national register, training.gov.au, has the capacity
to notify users of changes to a training package through a subscription service. You can
register to receive notifications by clicking on ‘Notify me of changes’ in the top right hand
corner of the screen displaying information about the training package you are interested in.

Assessment
Although the content of the new first aid competencies may have been updated, assessment
practice has not changed. Assessment of these units must be in line with the Rules of
Evidence and Principles of Assessment.

                                                The Rules of Evidence still require that evidence is:
        Rules of Evidence
                                                Valid: the evidence being assessed clearly relates to
                                                the requirements of the unit of competence
                    Validity
                                                Sufficient: the evidence meets all of the requirements
                                                of the unit, is gathered over a period of time, meets all
                 Sufficiency
                                                of the dimensions of competency and is relevant to
                                                different work contexts
                 Authenticity                   Current: the evidence is current
                                                Authentic: the evidence is the candidate’s own work.

                  Currency

In addition, assessors must ensure that all assessment activity undertaken is:

                                                Valid: the methods of assessment relate to the
                                                elements, performance criteria and assessment
          Principles of
          Assessment                            requirements of the unit
                                                Reliable: the assessment outcomes would consistently
                 Validity                       provide similar outcomes for candidates at different
                                                times and in different places
                                                Flexible: the assessor ensures that the candidate
                Reliability
                                                understands the assessment process and can
                                                negotiate the timing of the assessment, the context of
                Flexibility
                                                the assessment

                                                Fair: candidates are not disadvantaged and are given
                 Fairness

                                                standards outlined in the workplace and the units of
                                                competency being assessed (see also ‘reasonable
                                                adjustments’ below).

Reasonable Adjustment
Reasonable adjustment refers to measures or actions taken to provide a student with the
same educational opportunities as everyone else. To be reasonable, adjustments must be
appropriate for that person, must not create undue hardship for an RTO and must be
allowable within rules defined by the training package.

While adjustments can be made to assessment procedures, the integrity of the unit of
competency and/or qualification must be upheld. Students still need to achieve the
standards that employers and training providers expect. A student with a disability can have
training and assessment that is fair depending on the RTO’s attitude, preparation and
application of adjustments. This may include:

    •    allowing additional time or the use of a computer in a written test to complete
         responses for a candidate who is physically impaired, and that impairment
         contributes to the time to compete the test
    •    asking a candidate to record responses on a video or audio tape where they have
         difficult writing
    •    using an Auslan interpreter during assessment tasks
    •    varying an assessment task to produce the same outcomes, but via different
         methods.

It is important to note that the HLTAID competency standards do require a level of
physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards
relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an
emergency situation where there may be risk to life.

Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker
with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to
the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to
students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.

    In cases where a student has attended a resuscitation or first aid course but is unable to
    meet the full requirements of the competency, an RTO may wish to provide that student
     with a certificate of attendance, or similar, as an indication of their participation in the
                                                        course.

The intent of “two minutes uninterrupted" is for each candidate to demonstrate a sustained
duration of compressions and ventilations for at least 5 cycles (each cycle is the
compressions to breath ratio outlined by the ARC). In addition, the candidate needs to
demonstrate the specific items listed in the performance evidence for CPR.

The intent of this requirement is that the candidate is assessed performing the normal pre-
resuscitation checks, performing CPR, and then handing over to another rescuer. How your
RTO decides to structure your assessment tasks to collect this evidence and how much
evidence is deemed sufficient is dependent on your learning and assessment strategy,
provided it meets the competency standard and the Rules of Evidence. CS&HISC is unable
to validate individual assessment scenarios or assessment strategies. We recommend
consulting with industry to ensure your learning and assessment strategies meet the needs
of your student cohort. We also recommend that you contact the VET Regulator to confirm
you are meeting the NVR/AQTF standards.

What is meant by “basic wound care”?

The term “basic” refers to the level of care/response provided by the first aider, not the level
of the wound. These wounds may be minor or major.

The care of a wound refers to basic cleaning of the wound before any dressing is applied to
the wound to reduce the risk of infection prior to further treatment.

What does the statement “skills must be demonstrated working individually” mean?

Each individual must provide evidence of their own skills and knowledge to meet the
requirements of the unit. In other words, a student cannot be deemed competent if they have
simply observed another student perform a task, or participated as “the casualty” in a role-
play scenario.

What does the requirement “responded to … simulated emergency scenarios
contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting” mean?

In addition to providing evidence of the ability to perform first aid procedures listed in the
performance evidence, a candidate needs to be assessed responding to a [simulated]
emergency situation, in order to provide evidence of their ability to recognise an emergency
situation, assess the casualty and select and apply the appropriate response.

How your RTO decides to structure your assessment tasks to collect this evidence and
whether the decision is made to cluster this assessment with other activities is dependent on
your learning and assessment strategy, provided it meets the competency standard and the
Rules of Evidence. CS&HISC is unable to validate individual assessment scenarios or
assessment strategies. Consider consulting with the candidate’s employer to develop
simulations and role-plays that reflect the type of emergency situations common to their
workplace.

What is meant by following the prompt of an AED?

Training AED device is used in conjunction with resuscitation manikin

    •    Unpack = removal of the AED cover and if required using the cover as a firm surface.
         Unpacking the defibrillator pads and making sure the cable to the AED is connected
    •    Activate = power on the device and audible prompts are heard
    •    Follow the prompts = listening to the prompts and following all instructions
         including: application of defibrillator pads in correct position, continue following the
         audible prompts including giving CPR with defibrillator pads still in position and
         moving away from the manikin when instructed until someone takes over or the
         simulation session finishes.

What is meant by Visual and verbal assessment of the casualty?

Visual assessment: careful observation of casualty and note what you see

    •    Is the person conscious or have they just lost consciousness, note the time
    •    Check the casualty for a medical alert bracelet or necklace
    •    Check if the casualty has any medication in the their hands or in the vicinity

Verbal assessment: Ask questions and note the answers

Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council                                    Page 13 of 42
First Aid Guide Companion Volume – Release 1.2
•    Ask the casualty their name, year and if they know where they are and introduce
         yourself
    •    Ask if they are experiencing any pain on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst
         the patient ever felt
    •    Ask the casualty do they know what happened
    •    Ask casualty if they are experiencing any numbness or tingling in the hands, arms or
         legs or anywhere in the body
    •    Ask casualty if they are experiencing nausea.
    •    Ask the patient if he or she is taking any medication or has allergies to food or
         medication.

What is meant by Secondary survey assessment of the casualty?

Primary Survey = DRSABCD

Secondary Survey often referred to as a head to toe assessment

    •    Starting at the top, examine the head and face for possible fractures, eye trauma or
         head injuries careful to not move the head if spinal injury is suspected.
    •    Open the casualty’s eye if closed and check the pupil for size and if it reacts to light
    •    Check the chest movements (rise and fall, slow or fast breathing, gasping for breath
         and noisy breathing) and check for penetrating injuries (do not remove any
         penetrating objects)
    •    Visually observe all limbs to see if there is any spontaneous movements if conscious
         ask them to wriggle finger and toes. Ask the person to squeeze your hand with each
         arm.
    •    Look at the skin and note colour and then feel the skin for temperature and note if it
         is hot, cold or clammy
    •    Pat down the body and limbs to check for wetness that may suggest bleeding and
         deformities such as swelling, crooked limb, protruding bone to indicate area of injury
    •    Press gently against the chest and abdomen with flat palm of hand to assess pain
         response from casualty
    •    Note down all clinical findings and continue to monitoring the patient's ABCs and
         mental status

What level of knowledge of physiology is required for “physiology relating to
response/consciousness”?

Example: Choking is the physiological response to sudden airways obstruction. Consider
airway obstruction if:

    •    Adult casualty is clutching his or her neck, or points to throat.
    •    Child casualty may have bluish lips; there may be clues, eg seen eating or playing
         with small items just before onset of symptoms. Child is not responding to verbal
         commands.

Example: Closed eyes and not responding to verbal commands when the shoulders are
squeezed firmly is the physiological response to a neurological change in the level of
consciousness due to airway obstruction, trauma to the head, trauma to the body incurring
internal or external injuries and blood loss

    •    eyes are not opening
    •    may have bluish lips
    •    casualty is not responding to verbal commands
    •    casualty is not responding to painful stimuli

What is meant by immobilising principles?

Spinal injuries can occur in the following regions of the spine:

• the neck (cervical spine)

• the back of the chest (thoracic spine)

• the lower back (lumbar spine)

Refer to the following guidelines set by the Australian Resuscitation Council

Refer to guideline 9.1.6 MANAGEMENT OF SUSPECTED SPINAL
INJURY http://www.resus.org.au/policy/guidelines/section_9/management_of_suspected_spi
nal_injury.htm

What are the types of burns to consider with First Aid?

Refer to the following guidelines set by the Australian Resuscitation Council

Refer to guideline 9.1.3 BURNS

http://www.resus.org.au/policy/guidelines/section_9/burns.htm

Assessor Requirements

What is required to train and assess the HLTAID suite of units? Why are there
additional requirements?

All assessors of the HLTAID suite of units are required to satisfy the NVR/AQTF mandatory
competency requirements for assessors.

The following is a link to the NSSC website that clearly outlines what an Assessor is required
to have to meet NVR/AQTF mandatory competency
requirements. http://www.nssc.natese.gov.au/policies/determination_for_trainer_and_assessor_com
petencies

The following is a link to the ASQA website that clearly outlines what requirements apply to
assessors in the VET sector http://www.asqa.gov.au/faqs/frequently-asked-questions.html#training-
and-assessment/what-requirements-apply-to-assessors-in-the-vet-sector

The following is a link to the VRQA website http://www.vrqa.vic.gov.au

The following is a link to the TAC WA website http://www.tac.wa.gov.au

For the unit HLTAID001 there is the additional requirement to hold a current first aid
certificate HLTAID003 or higher (or higher relates to the units HLTAID004, HLTAID005,
HLTAID006 and HLTAID007)

For the unit HLTAID002 there is the additional requirement to hold a current first aid
certificate HLTAID003 or higher (or higher relates to the units HLTAID004, HLTAID005 and
HLTAID006)

The intent of this requirement is to ensure that trainers and assessors of these units have the
adequate skills, knowledge and/or experience responding to life threatening and emergency
situations.

What is meant by ‘current first aid certificate’? How do I know that my first aid
certificate is current?

The Safe Work Australia First Aid Model Code of Practice requires employers to ensure that
their nominated first aiders attend training on a regular basis to remain current. The Code of
Practice recommends that refresher training in CPR should be undertaken annually from the
date of issue and first aid qualifications should be renewed every three years from the date
of issue to maintain currency.

Mapping, Transition and Teach Out

If a worker has achieved HLTAID004 in a qualification and moves to another sector
and trains in another qualification, can this be credited against HLTAID003?

While HLTAID003 and HLTAID004 are two separate units, there are areas of similarity. An
RTO would need to conduct a mapping of the two units to identify any areas of gap, and
address the gap through a formal training or RPL process. In addition, the RTO would need
to ensure that any industry specific requirements regarding refresher training and currency
are met.

Generally speaking, if a worker has met the competency requirements for HLTAID004 they
should meet the competency requirements for HLTAID003. However, an RTO will still need
to formally document this process in order to meet compliance requirements under
NVR/AQTF. Please see our mapping guides on page 40 for more information.

What is the transition and teach out for these units?

RTOs under the jurisdiction of ASQA who have the first aid units explicitly listed on scope
must comply with the General direction—transition and teach-out in its entirety to ensure all
requirements are met. ASQA has also produced a Fact Sheet: Registering for revised
training packages to assist RTOs with the process.

You can access these documents on the ASQA website: http://www.asqa.gov.au

RTOs under the jurisdiction of the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA)
or West Australian Training Accreditation Council (WATAC) need to contact their regulator
directly.
