Thank you to Scott for submitting the following question:

Hi Andy, just enquiring about the finishing up of 22024VIC and 22099VIC courses in Dec, is there some standalone courses we can put on scope to replace these courses. I already have the HLTAID004 on scope but if a student wants to do just the Asthma and Anaphylaxis courses we are a bit stuck?

Hi Scott, thank you for your question.

22024VIC Course in Emergency Management of Asthma in the Workplace does indeed end on 31/12/2014. 22099VIC Course in First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis ends on 31/12/2015 so you have another 17 months with this course.

After speaking with Higher Education and Skills Group they have advised that 22024VIC Course in Emergency Management of Asthma in the Workplace will be re-accredited and that the development and accreditation process is under way. They anticipate this being available on-line at www.trainingsupport.skills.vic.gov.au by November 2014. As soon as this becomes available RTO’s will be able to apply to have this added to scope. They have advised that there will be a course code change.

This ones on our radar and if we have any further information we will be sure to let you know.

Hope this helps and be sure to send through any further questions.
