COVID SAFE

First Aid Training in 2021

We are running COVID Safe First Aid & CPR Courses. 

Dear Customers,

With the continued threat of COVID-19, we continually assess our first aid course delivery practices and strict hygiene protocols to ensure current Queensland Government Health directives are being met and we operate in a COVID safe environment.

FAAE would like to inform you all that first aid & CPR courses are still running. We are asking you to also be safe by following the current Queensland Government Health directives, hand sanitising, wearing the correct PPE (and face masks if required) and not coming to our course if you are feeling unwell or have flu like symptoms. 

FAAE Management feel it is important to continue delivering CPR and First Aid courses in this challenging environment as there are still numerous medical emergencies and thousands of Australian workers in essential positions that require this qualification to continue work.

Scott Whimpey – FAAE Director, “I would also like to personally assure you that we are committed to hygiene and safety in our CPR and First Aid courses, both in your workplaces and at our training sites in Coomera and Varsity Lakes”.

We will be asking you at time of booking: 

  • Have you visited a “Hot Spot” in the past 2 weeks? If the answer is yes, then you CANNOT attend our course.
  • Do you feel sick or have flu-like symptoms? If yes, you CANNOT attend our course.
  • If a person turns up for a course with flu-like symptoms, they cannot attend the course until they are in good health. We may also temperature check you on arrival.
  • Have you been in quarantine in the past 14 days either as a returned international traveller or potential exposure to COVID-19? You CANNOT attend our course unless you have tested negative to COVID-19.

Our procedures in hygiene:

CPR and First Aid are nationally recognised training courses and have practical skills. Some of these skills require students to be assessed doing an activity. We cannot compromise the integrity of our assessments, but have simply made some reasonable adjustments during the assessment, as requested from ASQA – our governing body. In addition to our standard measures, we have implemented the following:

  • All participants and trainers are encouraged to wash their hands frequently with soap and water
  • Hand sanitiser is provided for all students
  • Alcohol and disinfectant wipes are provided for use on equipment and surfaces
  • Course numbers are adjusted to follow any current Queensland Government Health directives
  • All equipment is thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant wipes before and after training
  • Each student is to use hand sanitiser and gloves when conducting practical activities
  • Bandaging techniques are practiced on yourself instead of other students
  • No face to face contact when performing the CPR assessment on a manikin, 2 breaths can be practiced off to the side of the manikin
  • 1 Manikin will be provided per student during the training
  • Minimal touching where possible in practical assessments
  • Face masks are to be worn by students and trainers when required as per any current Queensland Government Health directives

As a family-owned and operated RTO, we have taken the advice of the Australian Prime Minister and continued to keep essential businesses running.  We appreciate your patience and support throughout this time. The health and well being of our customers, team members and the overall community are paramount and we are committed to ensuring a healthy and safe environment.

If you would require any further information or have any concerns, please call our office on 07 5520 5068.
