Reviewing your service’s first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis qualifications
The qualification requirements for first aid, anaphylaxis and emergency asthma management vary slightly across education and care service types.
At centre based services, for all times that children are being educated and cared for, there must be at least one educator who:
- holds a current approved first aid qualification.
- has undertaken current approved anaphylaxis management training.
- has undertaken current approved emergency asthma management training.
- One educator may hold one or more of the qualifications.
For family day care services, each educator and educator assistant must hold all three of the listed qualifications.
For education and care services with premises on a school site, staff of the school site who hold the qualifications listed may meet the requirements above if they are in attendance at the school site and immediately available in an emergency.
Training for first aid, emergency asthma and anaphylaxis management must be updated at least every three years from the date of completion. The first aid certificate may specify additional requirements to keep it valid. For example, if your first aid certificate requires the CPR component to be completed every 12 months to keep it current, you will need to comply.
