TAC Special Bulletin - New Infection Control skill sets

 

 

New Infection Control skill sets
 
 

New Infection Control skill sets for the retail, food handling and transport and logistics sectors have been endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee Emergency Response Sub-Committee (AISC) and the Council of Australian Governments Skills Council and are now available on training.gov.au.

 

The newly developed skills set aims to minimise the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus as Australia moves towards the rebuilding of businesses, the workforce and a stronger economy.

 

The skill sets comprise one unit of competency - HLTINFCOV001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures.

 

The skill set unit is based on the current unit of competency HLTINF001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures and allows for contextualisation for a range of industry contexts.

 

RTOs regulated by the Training Accreditation Council who have HLTINF001 on scope, either as a stand alone unit or packaged within a broader qualification will need to apply to TAC to have HLTINFCOV001 added to their scope to deliver the skill sets.

 

The Council is committed to fast-tracking amendment to scope applications to support this COVID-19 response initiative. While RTOs must apply to TAC via the RTO Portal to add HLTINFCOV001 to scope, RTOs with HLTINF001 on scope will only be required to submit a training and assessment strategy as evidence to support the amendment application.

 

RTOs that do not have HLTINF001 on scope will be required to follow the normal processes for adding the new units to their scope and submit all evidence as per Amendment to Registration application requirements.

 

A series of resources has been developed to support RTOs deliver the new skill sets to different industry audiences. These resources are available on the AISC website.

 

Please visit the TAC website or contact the TAC Secretariat directly for further information.
