First Aid Course
DETERMINING AMOUNT OF TRAINING – TARGET STUDENT AND COURSE DELIVERY OPTIONS
Types of Students
We are required to determine the amount of training we provide to each student, with regard to the existing skills, knowledge and experience of each student.
Skill levels will vary in relation to the current experience/current training level of each student:
1. Students new to First Aid training
2. Students with previous training and/or experience similar to this course
Initial training (students new to First Aid training)
Initial training is intended for students who have no prior training or experience. For example job seekers, school leavers, those wanting a change in career etc.
Students attending a First Aid course for the first time can complete the course by undertaking pre-course study – referred to as unsupervised learning, and then attending a trainer led face to face course (mixed mode).
Where the student is a new entrant or inexperienced worker, we ensure that we give them the opportunity to fully absorb the required knowledge and to develop skills over time in the different contexts they would experience in the workplace.
This may require a longer time-frame than for those students with significant training/industry experience.
Refresher training (Students with previous training and/or experience)
The shorter refresher course may be appropriate for workers or students experienced in the industry or with previous training. This might be those who have been in the industry for some time (e.g. well practiced skills), those who have previously completed this course or similar, and those returning for workplace or industry requirements and to refresh their skills etc.
Meaning the student for a refresher course has previously attained experience in the required skills/knowledge.
It’s important to identify those students who are confident and are returning for recertification. It’s about recognising their pre-existing knowledge and skills. Therefore, upon enrolment, a refresher student can supply evidence of previous certification and therefore will be given the option of completing optional unsupervised pre-course study to refresh their knowledge and the complete a face to face training session with a trainer. They have the option to complete the pre-course workbook to refresh theory or just to attend the face-to-face component of the course.
Recertification/refresher training is a competency confirmation event that includes training, the purpose of which is to compensate for or prevent deterioration in a previously achieved standard of performance.
