Box Hill Institute has developed 3 on-line courses (Skill Set) on behalf of the Victorian Government to directly respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These three Infection Control Skill Sets are free for delivery to customer-facing employed workers. These short courses will help workers ensure their workplaces are safe for themselves and the community, and help to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Participants need to have been enrolled and commenced training by 31 December 2020.
WHAT ARE THE SKILL SETS?
This initiative relates to the following three Skill Sets:
- HLTSS00067 − Infection Control Skill Set (Transport and Logistics)
- HLTSS00065 − Infection Control Skill Set (Retail)
- HLTSS00066 − Infection Control Skill Set (Food Handling).
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE SKILL SETS?
A person can participate if they:
- are currently employed in Victoria in a customer-facing role
- have not previously completed the individual Skill Set they are seeking to enrol in, or either of the other Infection Control Skill Sets.
You can enrol any customer-facing worker who is eligible to work or volunteer in Australia, irrespective of their citizenship or residency status, with priority given to those working in retail, food handling, and transport and logistics.
WHAT DO PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE FOR COMPLETING A SKILL SET?
Participants will receive a statement of attainment when they have completed a Skill Set.
