The First Aid Subject Matter Expert Group (SMEG) signed off the draft of the new release of First Aid units:  HLTAID001 – HLTAID007 (HLTAID008 not included in this review) on 7 July 2014.  Pending feedback, the next release of these units will be a Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council (CS&HISC) upgrade, resulting in no change to code or title of the units as they will be deemed equivalent.  When the new release units are finalised, RTO’s who have the endorsed HLTAID units on scope of registration may immediately use the new release version in their assessment tools and strategies. CS&HISC aim to have this new release available on Training.gov.au by 6th October 2014 to meet the new transition timeline of these units on the 30th October 2014.
