Changes to First Aid Units in 2021

In 2021, we have some updates coming to some of our first aid courses. This is because the national regulator for Australia’s training organisations has made a few changes to several first aid units and course codes.

These updates to the units of competency have been made to reflect industry best practice, expectations and current regulations. The good news is that the course codes being superseded are fully recognised and will be accepted in your industry.

While this is mostly relevant for students who need to complete a particular set of units for their workplace, it is handy to be aware of the changes.

Remember, if you have any questions at all on course contents, requirements, or want to know which course is right for you, our Customer Service team are on hand and happy to answer any queries. Just call (02) 6282 2399 or email training@stjohnact.com.au
