Important training course updates

At Red Cross, your safety and the safety of our trainers is important to us. That’s why we have carefully planned how we can deliver our training courses safely.

Additionally, we adhere to State and Territory Health Authority Regulations that are in effect at the time of the course. Please review the restrictions below relevant to your state:

Vaccination status
QLD & VIC – students are required to confirm their double vaccination status prior to training entry.

NSW – Restrictions have eased, but some venues require double vaccination status as a condition of entry (Bathurst, Blacktown, Campbelltown, Fairy Meadow, Gymea, Ourimbah, Penrith, Port Macquarie)

All other States and Territories – no vaccination requirements at this time.

If you’re not fully vaccinated yet, we’d be happy to assist you to reschedule your training, or by providing details of our virtual first aid training.

Mask requirements
Masks are required in all states and territories at the current time. In SA, masks are highly recommended in adult learning environments.

If you have flu-like symptoms or are identified as a COVID-19 close contact
Please do not attend classroom training if you are sick, experiencing any flu-like symptoms or have been deemed a close contact of someone with COVID-19. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on the basis of health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test
Please do not attend classroom training until you have your results and they are negative. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on this basis.
