On Sunday 3/8/20 the Victorian Government announced a 6-week stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne. In the interest of following guidelines and reducing the gathering of groups, Real Response has decided to postpone all onsite face-to-face courses in Melbourne.
Exceptions to the above may be considered if training is for an essential service, or needed for urgent safety purposes.
If you don’t fulfil the above requirements, you can still get your nationally accredited first aid certificate by way of our online courses.
Real Response has a comprehensive risk assessment and policy/procedure for mitigating the risk of COVID transmission during their courses and will continue to update this as per government advice.
Rest of Victoria
Real Response will continue to run onsite courses for those outside of Melbourne.
In the interest of safety, we will be providing all participants with PPE, checking thermal temperatures, and following social distancing guidelines.
Real Response will be continuing to deliver our onsite training nationally while following the COVID-19 precaution guidelines set out in each state. See further information below.
Our online courses are also available nationwide.
COVID-19 Precautions In Face To Face Training
As a way of protecting all students and staff there will be a number of precautions that will be taken with all face to face training around Australia:
- All courses will include some form of PPE. In Victoria, PPE will be required throughout the entire course whereas in the rest of Australia PPE will only be required during the practical components. The PPE will be supplied free of charge and includes items such as gloves, face masks and protective eyewear.
- All students and staff will go through a screening process when attending face to face training. This will include a temperature check along with a declaration that the student must sign confirming that they have no symptoms and haven’t come in contact with a COVID positive person.
- Training will include a range of additional hygiene practices. All participants will be required to use regular hand hygiene using the provided hand sanitiser. Surfaces and equipment will be cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis by students and instructors.
- All training will require 4 square meters per person
