Implementation of new Skill set

A new Unit of Competency and skill sets were endorsed by Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) on 12 May 2020 for Infection Control.

This has been done in order to address the short term requirement to train workers and also minimise the potential risk arising from COVID-19.

The contextualisation advice must be applied by an RTO that is delivering HLTINFCOV001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures as part of one of the newly endorsed skill sets.

RTOs must make sure that the training considerations are reflected while they continue to address all the assessment requirements.

Credit transfer arrangements

An RTO may conduct a RPL assessment process when a student has completed HLTINFCOV001, but Credit Transfer cannot be granted between HLTINFCOV001 and HLTINF001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures.

Assessment requirements for HLTINFCOV001
