Our obligation to you
We are required to provide clear evidence to enable you to decide if this course is suitable for you. This course teaches the skills and knowledge required to develop an asthma risk assessment and emergency management plan to handle asthma episodes in the workplace. It provides background knowledge of the triggers, symptoms and effects of asthma as well as emergency management. It applies to workers in a wide range of settings where emergencies involving asthma episodes may occur such as: Childcare; Aged and community care; Sport; Tourism; Hospitality
Are there physical requirements for this course?
It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training. There can be no exceptions to these Australian Government requirements that are clearly written into the Training Package. Therefore, students who are unable to satisfy the physical requirements of the course cannot be deemed competent or issued with a statement of attainment, even if the qualification is a necessary part of their employment conditions.

COURSE DELIVERY OPTIONS
1. Initial training and modes of delivery (students new to the 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 course for the first time can complete the course in 2 ways. Either by undertaking pre-course study - referred to as unsupervised learning, and then attending a trainer led face to face course (mixed mode) or by attending a longer period of training (face to face).
Where the student cohort consists of new entrants or inexperienced workers, 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.
2. Refresher training and modes of delivery (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 cohort for a refresher course is comprised of students who have 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 (mixed mode or express mode).
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.
3. Skills assessment to demonstrate competency (Students who are employed in a specific vocational role)
Students who are employed in a specific vocational role relating to validated industry experience can complete an assessment only pathway.
This pathway is based on ASQA user's guide: https://www.asqa.gov.au/standards/chapter-2/clause-3.5
A key pillar of the national VET system is that nationally endorsed qualifications, skill sets and units of competency are recognised and portable across the country-regardless of where they were issued. Students must not be required to repeat any unit or module in which they have already been assessed as competent, unless a regulatory requirement or licence condition (including an industry licensing scheme) requires this. If a student provides suitable evidence they have successfully completed a unit or module at any RTO, your RTO must provide credit for the unit or module.
This cohort of students have currency of knowledge and skills so what's required is to collect this evidence against the Training Package requirement and we do this by collecting a copy of their qualifications/registration and collect and store video evidence of their assessments against what's required by the Training Package. This evidence is also available for moderation to allow consistency of decision making.
Pre-course study for the course is found in the student portal. Students must have access to a computer, phone, tablet etc. with access to the internet to complete the pre-course study online.
