Foundation Skills

Students’ foundation skill levels are assessed prior to training, with results recorded against each of the core skill areas (reading, writing, literacy, numeracy,oral communication and digitalliteracy), to determine if additional support is required for success. Results of these assessments are discussed individually with each student.


Students self-identify any disabilities on their enrolment form. Australian Training Centre trainers and assessors will work closely with the student, carers and any disability support providers to provide every opportunity for success.


Students may require additional support needs, which can be accessed externally to the RTO. Trainers and/or staff may be alerted to a problem (or potential problem) through student communication or witnessing specific behaviour of concern. On these occasions, trainers
are encouraged to be the central contact person with the student.

Entry Requirements:

For entry into this course, students must have sound foundation skills relating to reading, writing and numeracy (at
least Year 10 English or equivalent) and oral communication skills to ask questions and actively listen to seek information
and confirm understanding.
It is important to note that the HLTAID competency standards also require a level of physical ability required to
provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life. Due to the potential risk to
health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform
resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard; it is not appropriate to issue a Statement of Attainment to
students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements – a Certificate of Participation will be issued instead.
