 22578VIC Course in First Aid Management of Anphylaxis

Course Description

This course has been designed for individuals who are required to provide first aid to a person experiencing anaphylaxis until the arrival of medical assistance. This means being able to identify the triggers, signs, and symptoms of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis, and follow the standard first aid procedures to administer adrenaline using an adrenaline autoinjector to someone suffering anaphylaxis in the workplace or in the community.

Satisfactorily completing all requirements of this course provides the student with the ability to develop risk management and risk minimisation strategies for individuals diagnosed at risk of anaphylaxis in the workplace. This includes the development and implementation of pre-emergency risk assessment/management and the development and implementation of individual anaphylaxis management plans.

This course provides nationally recognised training for workers, or nominated workplace first aiders, from any industry sector and addresses the provision of care to adults and/or children in the workplace who are diagnosed as being at risk of anaphylaxis or displaying signs/symptoms of anaphylaxis.

** There are specific industries that require additional training such as childcare workers, school teachers, and other related industries

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

Frequently Asked Questions

What does my workplace need to provide for onsite training?

I supply the adrenaline autoinjectors (both Epipens and Anapens) and all training equipment required for the class.

All I need from your workplace is enough chairs for each of the participants and an open area to train in.

Is there a minimum number of participants required for a group booking?

I require a minimum of 6 participant to run an onsite workplace group training session

Is there a maximum number of participants allowed in a group booking?

I can train a maximum of 20 participants at a time.  If maximum amount of participants are being trained I require enough room for manikins to be placed on the ground and an extenstion of 30 minutes will be added to the training session to allow for adequate practice and assessment time and ensure your team receives quality training.

If there is insufficent space at your venue then back to back express classes are always a great alternative to ensure the best training for your staff.

What if I need Asthma and Anaphylaxis Training?

That’s no problem at all. Resus Ready offers combined Asthma and Anaphylaxis training. This is an expressed combined course and will require you to complete online precourse work and attend a short 40min face to face session. Follow the link below for more information.

    Does the Anaphylaxis course include the Asthma course?

    The course 22578VIC Course in First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis only contains the anaphylaxis components. By successfully completing this course you will receive certificates for :

    • 22578VIC – Course in First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis
    • VU23090 – Provide first aid management of anaphylaxis
    • VU23091 – Develop risk minimisation and risk management strategies for anaphylaxis

    If you require certificates for both the Asthma and Anaphylaxis courses then I suggest you complete the Combined Asthma and Anaphylaxis course. Follow the link below for more information


    Do you train with Epipens or Anapens?

    At Resus Ready I believe in equiping you with the knowledge and skills so you feel confident in an emergency situation no matter what device you are presented with. This is why I train you in BOTH Epipens and Anapens. This is because you do not know which device will be available to you and it is important you know how to use both adrenaline autoinjectors.

    What is a USI and how do I find my USI ?

    A USI is your Unique Student Identification number. This is issued by the Government and you keep it for life. If you have completed any VET training such at HLTAID011 Provide First Aid or other Nationally Recognised courses then you will likely already have a USI.

    Your USI contains all your Nationally Recognised Training records from Janurary 1st 2015 onwards.

    To create a USI you can simply go to www.usi.gov.au and click "create a USI" then follow the prompts
