COVID-19: Guidance for providers
This guidance has been published to assist providers to address common issues they may encounter during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This advice doesn’t replace directions from Commonwealth or state or territory health authorities but may assist you in delivering training and assessment safely for your staff and students.
COVID-19 restrictions differ across Australia. Check your state or territory advice to see if restrictions apply where you deliver.
Stay COVID Safe
We can all help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Australia. To protect others, students and staff must:
- practice good hygiene
- practice physical distancing
- follow the limits for public gatherings
- isolate if unwell.
For more information to help stop the spread, the see the Department of Health website.
If in-person training delivery is permitted locally, you should follow Safe Work Australia’s guidance on physical distancing and hygiene measures for training providers.
If it’s not possible to maintain physical distancing, you may still decide to deliver practical training (if allowed under local restrictions), but must take all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as limiting the number of participants in any task and ensuring areas and equipment are cleaned between each use.
