Due to the high number of asthma sufferers in Australia, specialised Asthma training was developed for the early childhood education industry.
While asthma training is relevant to all industries, the new legislation for childcare industry specifies that a staff member with
asthma training be onsite at all times, including Anaphylaxis and First Aid training.
This Asthma Training course covers risk management of Asthma, including training for prevention, management, treatment and intervention.
This unit applies to work in a wide range of settings where emergencies involving asthma attacks may occur, such as:
- Early education centres
- Sports clubs and groups
- Aged care workers
If organising a staff training, we can facilitate the Asthma training nationally.
It is important to note that this Asthma Training course requires a level of physical ability to complete practical assessments. If your health or fitness restricts you from performing physical activities associated with this program, you will be able to participate but may not be eligible for a nationally accredited certificate.

This Asthma Training course combines plain English, videos, photos, and questioning to ensure all learners are able to have the best possible chance at comprehending the required knowledge and skills. If you believe you will need assistance due to your Language, Literacy or Numeracy skills, please contact our office on 02 9232 1010 to discuss your training needs.

- Can Centrelink pay for me?
What you need to do is register with your local Job Network Agent. Your Employment Consultant will make the booking with us on your behalf and arrange payment with us directly. Unfortunately Centrelink does not pay directly.
- Can I pay my package in installments?
Unfortunately we cannot offer this service, full payment of course fees are required at the time of booking. The good news is that we try to always offer value for money and keep course fees affordable, so you know that you are always getting good value, especially with our package deals which offer reduced prices!
- What if I have trouble with written/spoken english for a Course?
Most courses will permit a student to bring a friend to interpret for them during training. If you do need assistance, we ask that you contact first before booking your course so we can advise if there are any restrictions. For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.
If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.
