ASSESSMENT PRACTICAL - Practical tasks and scenario demonstrations

The simulated assessment environments will reflect the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.  Skills must be demonstrated by the student working individually in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, industry-validated scenarios and simulations to assess students’ skills and knowledge.

It’s important that students have knowledge of the content of this course. The assessable practical skills are listed below.

You will be assessed on performing first aid scenario and task demonstrations for:

1. Infant CPR

2. Adult CPR & defibrillation

3. Anaphylaxis & autoinjector

4. Asthma & medication

5. Choking

6. Turn a casualty on his/her side

7. Bleeding control & shock

8. PIT for a snake/spider bite

9. Rice for sprain
