Childcare Theory Refresher
To assist those working in the Childcare industry to maintain their currency of theory knowledge in first aid, we have developed an online course that can be completed in the safety of your own home. IT IS NOT designed to replace the normal first aid training requirements you have under Safework NSW / Safework Australia or ACECQA Australian Children’s Education and Care Authority.
This IS NOT A NATIONALLY RECOGNISED unit of competence.
ACECQA have said:
Education and care service providers and educators are encouraged to pursue all available options to complete first aid refresher training, including completing only the theoretical aspects of the training, if necessary.
We strongly recommend that if your first aid is due to be refreshed you should try and attend a Nationally Recognised first aid course – we do however strongly recommend AGAINST courses that advertise completion of online work followed by short duration face to face assessment only.
If you cannot get to a proper first aid course, as per ACECQA, you can simply refresh your theory knowledge by enrolling in our online module. Then, as soon as you are able to attend a face to face course, refresh your training as per the normal guidelines. Our online theory module only costs $30 – $10 is redeemable when you enrol into an accredited course with us later in the year.
The online module will take up to a few hours to complete, at the end you can print off the final slide providing evidence of successful completion. This evidence should be provided to your employer and retained in case of audit.
Remember to keep an eye open on our website for when we start up courses again, we will also alert you via email so you can book into a course as soon as possible.
