DETERMINING AMOUNT OF TRAINING – TARGET STUDENT AND COURSE DELIVERY OPTIONS

Student cohort (types of students)

Allens Training Pty Ltd is required to determine the amount of training they provide to each student, with regard to the existing skills, knowledge and experience of the student. This is achieved by identifying the cohort category or the student undertaking the proposed training and also the mode/s of delivery being provided. Skill levels will vary in relation to the type of student or ‘cohort’. 

Allens Training Pty Ltd have identified the cohorts as students new to the training or returning to the industry.

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. 

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.

Course times

IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO STUDENTS AS FROM 19/07/2019– Students who do not live in Western Australia or Tasmania are no longer able to complete this training online.

What does competency-based training actually mean? 

A competency-based training environment is centered on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.

Amount of training and the AQF volume of learning

The AQF Volume of Learning describes how long a student, who does not hold any competencies identified in the qualification, would normally take to develop all of the required skills and knowledge at that qualification level. The amount of training comprises the formal learning activities that are provided to a student to enable them to meet the requirements of each training product and gain the skills and knowledge specified in the relevant training product.

Recognition or any prior learning or previous courses 

Upon enrolment, you are given the opportunity to upload your previous certificate and based on that evidence, the course can be modified based on your previous knowledge. There is a currency requirement to be able to demonstrate skills such as using PPE.

We need to identify any support you require to complete this course 

Upon enrolment, we will give you an opportunity to provide information on your language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete this course. There is also the opportunity to provide details and communicate any special needs or support requirements you may have.  Assistance can be sought from our student support officer at Allens Training Pty Ltd by phoning 1300 559 064.

We provide equitable access to all required educational and support services, so that no student is disadvantaged to be able to enroll into this course regardless of their mode of study or location. Students can organise to meet with their trainer on a one-to-one basis for additional support, plus email and phone contact.

It’s important to note that there is a physical requirement to complete correctly fitting PPE.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)      

Completing any vocational education course in Australia, it is a requirement for you to obtain and supply a USI. This is obtainable from usi.gov.au If a USI is not supplied and verified with usi.gov.au a certificate cannot be issued to you.

If you are under 18 years of age

It is a requirement that parental/guardian consent is obtained for students under the age of 18 to be able to participate in a course.  The form for this can be found here.

Course fees

This course may be delivered by way of partnership arrangements with your local trainer. The course fee will be paid direct to the trainer (the partner organisation). This course is usually arranged by the employer of a workgroup and the employer can be invoiced for the training. If the employer does not arrange the training, or the employer does not agree to fund the training, training fees must be paid by the individual student direct to the trainer.

All partners of Allens Training Pty Ltd will be required to meet minimum resource and facility requirements and course fees are available at the time of enrolment. Course fees will be communicated to you prior to enrolment.

Funding and work placement arrangements

Foundation skills required

Foundation skills are the underpinning skills required for participation in the workplace, the community and in adult education and training.

Learning – to learn to work safely in the construction industry

Reading – in order to read and understand signs, workplace forms, and instructions and to make accurate reports.

Writing – in order to record details and to make reports using handwritten skills and computer skills

Oral communication – to employ reporting, communication and information-gathering techniques

Numeracy – to calculate risk rank for risk assessment

Other foundation skills essential to this course.

Reasonable adjustment explained

Reasonable adjustment refers to flexibility in assessment approaches to account for individual learning needs, while still adhering to the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course. Whilst reasonable adjustments can be made in terms of the way in which evidence of performance is gathered, the evidence criteria for making competent/not yet competent decisions should not be altered in any way.

If a student meets essential entry requirements, the RTO must endeavour to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ necessary for them to complete their course work or demonstrate competency. This may include adjusting the physical environment, student learning materials or the manner that a theory test is completed. In most situations, a student with a disability will be able to tell the RTO what he or she needs to be able to study. If necessary, the RTO should also seek advice from disability areas within government departments or organisations that represent or provide services to people with a disability.

Adjustments may include:

Modifying educational premises. For example, making ramps, modifying toilets and ensuring that classes are in rooms accessible to the person with a disability.

Modifying or providing equipment. For example, lowering lab benches, enlarging computer screens, providing specific computer software or an audio loop system.

Changing assessment procedures. For example, allowing for alternative examination methods such as oral exams, or allowing additional time for someone else to write an exam for a person with a disability.

Changing course delivery. For example, providing study notes or research materials in different formats or providing a sign language interpreter for a person who is hearing impaired.

Please note that in some Training Packages, first aid and CPR training for example, there are mandatory skills that cannot be modified as a reasonable adjustment. The student is required to complete 2 minutes of adult CPR on a manikin on the floor. There is no room for reasonable adjustment as it is stated as what is required in the Training Package.

ASSESSMENT – THEORY

Question paper – You will be assessed via SafeWork NSW mandated assessment:

Assessment Task One

21 Multiple choice and short answer questions (students write their answers in the assessment document provided by SafeWork NSW)

Assessment Task Two

ASSESSMENT – PRACTICAL

Physical demonstrations (skills)

The simulated assessment environments will reflect the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.  Skills must be demonstrated by the student working individually in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, industry-validated scenarios and simulations to assess students’ skills and knowledge.

It’s important that students have knowledge of the content of this course. The assessable practical skills are listed below.

You will be observed and assessed physically demonstrating correctly fitting PPE:

1. Eye protection,

Northern Beaches NOT trained in First Aid

August 2nd, 2019

FEWER than 5 per cent of Australians are qualified in first aid, sparking an urgent call from emergency services for people to update their skills and save a life.

Red Cross data released yesterday revealed Australia had one of the lowest rates of first-aid training in the world.

Parents were among those singled out as Red Cross ­trainer Janie McCullagh said first-aid skills could save the life of a loved one. “It can be the difference between life and death,” Ms McCullagh said.

“Our program is popular with pregnant ladies and their partners, they come along to learn what to do even before they have children. I think it would be appropriate for all adults to learn whether they are starting a family or not.”

First-aid training helped Seaforth mum Susie Campbell save two lives, including her young son Thomas when he was a baby.

The 43-year-old was taking then-nine-week-old Thomas, now seven, for a walk in a sling when she noticed he wasn’t breathing. She was able to resuscitate­ Thomas using cardio­pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills she had learned just a week earlier.

Her first-aid training kicked in again just six months later when she heard her neighbour screaming frantically for help.

“I ran across and my neighbour’s son was turning blue, he had a lollipop stuck in his throat,” Mrs Campbell said.

“I knew I had to get it out because if it went down his throat any more he wouldn’t have been able to breathe.

“I flipped him upside down and all of a sudden it just shot out of his mouth.”

Mrs Campbell said knowing first aid was essential and every parent should make it their responsibility to learn.

“It gave me the confidence to deal with it then and there,” she said. “Without it, it may have been too late.”

Ms McCullagh said at the very minimum people learn CPR, which keeps oxygenated blood pumping through the body — ensuring it reaches the brain and vital organs.

If administered within the first minute after a person’s heart has stopped, their chance of surviving is 80 per cent. “People have to be ready to know what to do,” Ms McCullough said.

Knowing how to stop a critical bleed could also mean the difference between life and death, she said, adding that while first-aid won’t always result in the best outcome it can make a real difference.

“Once you have the knowledge it stays with you for life and gives you the confidence to react in the event of an accident,” she said.

First aid trainer needed CPR during the course.

July 22nd, 2019

We have over 70, 5 Star Google reviews and are increasing the number of firts aid and CPR courses we are providing to the Northern Beaches community. Please read the article below and I am sure you will make a booking online.

A group of first aid trainees thought their instructor was role-playing during a class on how to perform life-saving CPR as he had a heart attack during a lecture.

David Knowles, 77, began to lose consciousness as he told his students how to resuscitate people at his local church in Exeter.

Some of the group thought Mr Knowles was giving a demonstration as he lay on the floor feeling faint and unwell. 

They managed to save the St John Ambulance volunteer’s life after he told them what to do just before he passed out.

He told the BBC: “I had just started my lecture and we were talking about cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

“The more senior members of the group had asked for a demonstration…she thought I was role playing, but I told her it was real and that I was going to lose consciousness.”

Mr Knowles suffered a cardiac arrest but survived because his trainees dialled 999 and performed CPR until paramedics rushed to the scene. 

The pensioner fell into a coma and had another heart attack after he was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

He would have died at the scene if nobody was there to help him. 

Mr Knowles said: “I’m told I came to, briefly, and was talking to the paramedics about my condition, but the next thing I remember is waking up in hospital, two and a half weeks later.”

The retired nurse left hospital after five weeks and has since made “excellent progress” at his home in Newtown, Exeter, according to the BBC.

He could have suffered brain damage, but is said to be mentally alert and able to walk unaided.

Teaching basic first aid in schools will be compulsory by 2020 but schools will be supported if they want to start earlier.

Plans to teach basic first aid in schools have been welcomed by the British Heart Foundation.

The charity calls the move a “decisive moment in the battle to improve cardiac arrest survival rates”.

There are 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK every year and fewer than 10% of these people survive.

The survival rates double, however, in countries where CPR is taught in schools.

Now the government says that from 2020 learning those key skills should be mandatory for every pupil.

By the time they leave secondary school, all youngsters in England will have been taught how to administer CPR, the purpose of defibrillators, and basic treatments for common injuries.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds said: “Learning the basic skills of first aid and techniques like CPR will give young people the confidence to know that they can step in to help someone else in need and in the most extreme cases – it could potentially save a life.

“That’s why we took the decision to include health education alongside relationship education for primary school children and relationship and sex education for secondary children.

“These subjects are a crucial part of our work to ensure children learn the wider skills they need to flourish in the modern world.”

“Introducing CPR lessons into health education in all state-funded secondary schools is a significant step that promises to improve the odds of survival for countless people who have a cardiac arrest in the future.”

The government says it will offer support to schools who want to introduce the scheme this year, before it becomes compulsory in 2020.

Woman in hospital after near-drowning at popular beach

A 38-year-old woman remains in a serious condition in hospital after being pulled unconscious from the water at a popular beach south of Adelaide.

The woman was swimming at Aldinga Beach when she ran into trouble at around 7.30pm yesterday.

A nearby swimmer noticed the woman struggling and dragged her from the water, with an off-duty paramedic then rushing to her aid.

“The poor young lady was like, face down in the water and obviously a whole lot of people saw her and got to her aid and pulled her back onto the beach and it was looking pretty grim,” one witness said.

“He went down and just started working on her and the response from the emergency services was just fantastic.”

The paramedic performed CPR until ambulance crews arrived, with the woman then airlifted to the Flinders Medical Centre.

The woman is in a serious but stable condition in hospital. (9news)
