Answers to some common questions about our training & courses

Our Company

Our trainers are well-versed in providing high quality courses. We deliver our training in partnership with Allens Training Pty Ltd, who are a registered training organisation (90909). At Auscompliance we offer both nationally recognised courses and non-accredited training.

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional training to individuals and companies. Our trainers bring a wealth of experience and are committed to delivering highly informative and engaging courses.

If you’re looking for group training, we are able to offer flexible and personalised solutions based on your organisation’s needs.

As a South-Australian based company, we are proud of our local industry. We are also pleased to support and provide training to a number of not-for-profit organisations, like the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Guide Dogs SA/NT.

  • Complete pre-registration and pre-coursework (if required)
  • Register for a USI (Unique Student Identifier), if you haven’t already done so.
  • Your completed pre-coursework certificate (if required) & your USI (Unique Student Identifier)
  • If you are doing a refresher or a LV Panel only course you will need to bring a physical copy of your current certificate for sighting
  • Casual clothing, suitable for kneeling and undertaking CPR or other activities.
  • A notepad and a pen
  • A water bottle
  • If you are doing a full day course, you may wish to bring lunch, or you can purchase it from nearby food places. (Note: If you are undertaking a public Warden/Fire Safety course you will be provided with lunch.)

Training durations vary; please view the specific course pages to find out more detailed information.

Please advise us prior to the course if you have any medical issues, impairments, learning disabilities, language difficulties or concerns that may impact on your ability to undertake training. We are able to make reasonable adjustments in order to assist you.

Please Note: If you are booked into a course that includes CPR, you must be able to kneel on the ground and perform CPR for 2 minutes. This is a requirement, and we cannot make exceptions.

Simply put, these are all the same course.
Senior First Aid and Apply First Aid were the old names and have been superseded; HLTAID003 Provide First Aid is the correct and current unit title.

Payment & Policies

You can find details about pricing on the specific course pages.
Please Note: Unfortunately we aren’t able to offer concession rates.

We offer two payments options:
Over the phone, or
Direct into our account via Electronic Funds Transfer.

We will provide you with an invoice and/or receipt to your email address.

Please pay as soon as possible, so that we can send out your pre-coursework link (if required). Payment must be made prior to the course date to secure your booking.

 

Cancellations or requests to reschedule must be received 3 business days prior to training, or a fee may be incurred. A full refund will be applied if you give at least 3 working days’ notice. We may apply a full refund, given at our discretion, in some circumstances where less than 3 business days’ notice is provided.

Certificates

We endeavour to send out your certificate as soon as possible. You should expect to receive it via email within 1 week after your course date.

 

Delays can occur when there are processing issues due to incorrect data. When registering (either online prior to training, or on the day with a paper version), please ensure the following:

  • You enter/write your USI correctly;
  • You give us exactly the same full name (including middle names) that is listed with your USI record; and
  • Your date of birth information is correct and matches your USI record

This will depend on what course you complete. Here are some certificate validity periods for our popular courses:

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a 10 digit/letter reference number. 

It provides you with a secure online record of all recognised training and qualifications that you complete in Australia. You can access training records and transcripts at any time, and it stays with you for life.

That depends on the training you are doing with us.

If you are undertaking a nationally recognised course, it is mandatory that you have a USI. However, if you are doing a non-accredited course, you do not need one. 

To create a USI, please visit this link: https://www.usi.gov.au/

Make sure you have at least 1 form of current and valid ID ready, and also your personal contact details.

If you are experiencing issues, please have a look at the USI Student Help Centre https://www.usi.gov.au/help-centre/students.

Alternatively, you can call USI Office Phone Support on 1300 857 536 (Mon – Fri, 9am to 5pm Eastern Time).
