At least one member of staff present at each campus of the community language school at all times must hold a current First Aid certificate that has been obtained from an accredited Australian provider.

The community language school must provide copies of current First Aid certificates. In addition it must list all certificate holders separately in the First Aid certificate template to enable cross-checking. The First Aid template has been updated for the 2019 accreditation round and is available here. 

First Aid certificates are normally valid for three years from the date of issue; however, CPR training should be undertaken every year.

ESAV organises First Aid courses for community language school staff.

The nominated staff member must be present at the nominated campus at all times. Staff members can only be “shared” between campuses where campuses do not operate at the same time.

Please note that the minimum level of first aid training required is:

  • HLTAID003 “Provide first aid” (which includes HLTAID001 “Provide CPR” and HLTAID002 “Provide basic emergency life support” )
    or
  • HLTAID004 “Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting” (which includes HLTAID001, HLTAID002 and HLTAID003).

Instructions for submission

Please download and complete the First Aid template and supply clear, colour copies of the First Aid certificates held by staff members at each campus. The template and certificate copies must be collated into a single PDF named  “06_firstaid.pdf”.
