On Thursday 8th August 2019, SkillsIQ released the draft first aid units of competency for public consultation.

The consultation will end at 5.00pm on Friday 20th September. All feedback must be provided via the feedback forum on the SkillIQ website.

The National Institute of First Aid Trainers is a member of the First Aid Industry Reference Committee and has provided input to the current draft. The First Aid Industry Reference Committee is made up of representatives from 12  organisations, all of whom have suggestions and ideas of how the units should look.

NIFATS opinion is that the units in their current state are not finished and further work is required to ensure they meet the needs of the industry. It is hoped that feedback is provided by as many individuals and organisations as possible during this period of public consultation.
