Want to ensure your staff are safe and job-ready for the risks associated with their roles during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The COVID-19 Direct Care Skill Set is suited to aged care, disability support, home and community care settings and has been tailored to meet industry needs.

This free course is available online at your local TAFE college and participating private registered training organisation, providing flexibility for your business to train staff when it suits you.

Employees will learn:
• how to use personal protective equipment safely;
