Is There Any Flexibility in the Assessment Methods (HLTAID001 – Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)?
Reasonable adjustment refers to flexibility in assessment approaches to account for individual learning needs, while still adhering to the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course.
- Whilst reasonable adjustments can be made in terms of the way in which evidence of performance is gathered, the evidence criteria for making competent/not yet competent decisions should not be altered in any way.
- If a student meets essential entry requirements, Alibi Training Australia must endeavour to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ necessary for them to complete their course work or demonstrate competency. This may include adjusting the physical environment, student learning materials or the manner that a theory test is completed.
- In most situations, a student with a disability will be able to tell Alibi Training Australia what they need to be able to study.
- If necessary, Alibi Training Australia will seek advice from disability areas within government departments or organisations that represent or provide services to people with a disability.
This Unit of Competency contains mandatory skills that cannot be modified as a reasonable adjustment. The student is required to complete 2 minutes of adult CPR on a manikin on the floor. There is no room for reasonable adjustment as it is stated as what is required in the Training Package.
Amount of Training:
As with all Unit of Competencies this training is centred on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.
- Students New to the Training – This target group may require a longer time-frame than for those students with significant training/industry experience.
- Students with Previous Training and/or Experience similar to this Course – This target group is where recognition or any prior learning is identified, presenting an opportunity to provide a shorter time frame

- Alibi Training has enough training resources for all candidates to deliver performance evidence without sharing training resources.
- Our purpose-built training rooms offer natural lighting, air-conditioning and comfortable seating, creating an optimum learning environment.
