Physical requirements that are necessary to pass the course objectives are:

  • Strength: To assist with lifting and transferring a client, and perform CPR
  • Mobility: To bend, stoop, and bend down to the floor; ability to move around rapidly; and to move in small, confined spaces
  • Hearing: To hear through the stethoscope to discriminate sounds; to hear cries for help; to hear alarms on equipment and emergency signals; and various overhead pages
  • Vision: To make physical assessments of client and equipment
  • Communication: To communicate in both verbal and written formats; and interact with clients, staff, and faculty supervisors

Please declare in your application if you have a disability, disorder, or if you’re on any medication that’ll require reasonable adjustments to fulfil these requirements.

Our approach is to collect evidence on whether the student can perform to the standards of the workplace. This is based on the relevant unit of competency, and you’ll find these tools being used:

  • Theory Assessments (TA)
  • Knowledge Based Assessments (KBA)
  • Simulation Based Assessments (SBA)
  • Professional Experience Placement (PEP)

With RPL we assess your competency based on formal, non-formal, informal learning or direct work experience based on the required skills of the course.

We use CT where you’ve completed units of study at another TAFE College or Registered Training Organisation that meet the requirements of another course. We grant credit according to the Certification, Issuing, and Recognition of Qualifications and Statements of Attainment. Assessing a CT is free.
