NEW INFECTION CONTROL SKILL SETS AVAILABLE


New Infection Control skill sets for the retail, food handling and transport and logistics sectors have been endorsed by the AISC Emergency Response Sub-Committee, and the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Skills Council and are now available on training.gov.au.
These skill sets will help minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19 and are designed to support individuals in the identified industries who require infection control skills and knowledge to decrease the risk and transmission of infection whilst carrying out their daily duties.

Delivering the new Infection Control Skill Set
RTOs regulated by Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) who have HLTINF001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures on scope, either as a stand-alone unit or packaged within a broader qualification will automatically have the new HLTINFCOV001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures added to their scope to deliver as a skill set. RTOs will be able to contact ASQA to request that the new unit of competency is removed from their scope if this is their preference. RTOs regulated by ASQA that do not have HLTINF001 on scope should follow normal processes for adding the new units to their scope. Please visit the ASQA website for further information.

RTOs regulated by the Western Australian Training Accreditation Council and the Victorian Regulations and Qualifications Authority should follow normal processes for adding new units to their scope.

Resources
Resources have been developed to support RTOs to deliver the skill sets. These resources include comprehensive advice on how to contextualise delivery of these skill sets to different industry audiences in the retail, transport and logistics and food handling sectors.
