- Demonstration of various first aid techniques.
- Written questions
Skills Force Australia provides the following resources for the student during the class sessions as learning resources:
- First Aid Manual – Free student handbooks are provided but are not required for training activities. The manual incorporates the latest first aid information and is a student resource providing additional information not covered under the training package core knowledge. It provides the student with an easy to read reference for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.
- Power Point – This presentation is interactive with videos and customised to include examples and scenarios that are relevant to the real-life first aid and CPR emergencies which the student may face providing them with the skills and confidence to respond to a situation where emergency life support or basic first aid may be required.
Skills Force Australia provides the following equipment for use during the face to face training for the student to undertake scenario-based assessment.
- Adult and infant resuscitation manikins in line with ARC Guidelines for assessment of CPR procedures

Specific needs and LLN reasonable adjustment:
Student(s) participating in training may have specific needs. Where these needs are identified before the enrolment process the Skills Force Australia will explore the options available to the student through the training and assessment. These may include but not limited to students with language, literacy and/or numeracy problems, or disabilities.
A certain level of language, literacy, and numeracy requirements are needed to undertake this course. Specifically, students would need the ability to: Prepare a written incident report or provide information to enable preparation of an incident report (e.g. a first aid report); Communicate effectively and assertively in an incident; Use literacy and numeracy skills as required to read, interpret and apply guidelines and protocols.
Students also require an appropriate level of senses (hearing, vision, and smell) to make accurate reports, check for dangers and apply appropriate injury management strategies.
If a person with specific needs meets essential entry requirements, Skills Force Australia will work with the student to make “reasonable adjustments” necessary for that student to perform their coursework.
These reasonable adjustments may include:
- Changing methods of how assessment is conducted, in order achieve desired competency whilst still adhering to required performance and/or knowledge evidence required such as verbal recorded assessment rather than written.
- Changing course delivery. For example, providing study notes or research materials in different formats (larger font, different font colour, black and white images etc…);
