Training and assessment

The BSB training package has undergone a significant update with the release of v7.0.

On 12 August 2020 the AISC endorsed the release of new versions of eight first aid units of competency within the HLT Health Training Package.

On 9 June 2020, ASQA published information about a new unit of competency and related skill sets for infection control training from the HLT Training Package that had been endorsed by the AISC in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
