OTHER TRAINING REQUIREMENTS
CSE3.1 AND ABOVE
If you are applying for a job as a CSE 3.1 or above, you must also appropriate First Aid and CPR training. We would recommend booking a first aid course with course code HLTAID004, as this covers your requirements for first aid, CPR, and emergency asthma & anaphylaxis training.Happy Haven OSHC educators working at CSE 3.1 or above will also be required to obtain Emergency Asthma First Aid training, Emergency Anaphylaxis First Aid training, and Medication Management training.
Before booking any training, check it against ACECQA’s approved qualifications list to ensure you aren’t wasting time and money on training that can’t be used in OSHC. Just use the ‘Qualification Level’ field to limit your search and check the ‘Course Code’ against that of the training you are investigating. This will also include information about the qualification required to work as a CSE 3.1 or above.
