At least one member of staff at each campus of the community language school is required to have a current First Aid certificate. The First Aid qualification must have been obtained from an accredited Australian provider.

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” )
HLTAID004 “Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting” (which includes HLTAID001, HLTAID002 and HLTAID003).

Each community language school is required to submit copies of these First Aid certificates. Certificate holders must also be listed separately in the First Aid certificate template (downloadable from the website) to enable cross-checking of all certificates.


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

ESAV provides First Aid courses for community language school staff.
