As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all Allens Training Public Courses on the Sunshine Coast have been put on hold (effective from Monday 30 March, for up to 4 weeks).

Although the latest Prime Ministers announcement did not put any additional restrictions around the delivery of training, Allens Training has been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and feel that the risk associated with continuing with the delivery of our public courses (in its current format) has increased to a level we are not comfortable with.

It is important to note that to date we are not aware of any of our course participants or staff testing positive to the coronavirus.

Since this pandemic started, we have been watching the situation closely and updating our practices daily to ensure best practice and to minimise risk to staff and participants in our training courses. We have been confident with these decisions which have included comprehensive changes including distancing measures, single use training aids, reducing class sizes, use of additional equipment such as a bag value mask to eliminate the need for mouth to manikin breaths…and so much more.

However, with the health and safety of you, our staff and trainers in mind, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily postpone all face-to-face training delivered in our Goulburn and Birtinya Training Centres until such time as the risk has subsided.

This approach is in line with the Australian Resuscitation Councils recommendation that states - The ARC recommends that the teaching of routine first aid and resuscitation courses should be postponed until the current COVID-19 pandemic has abated and expert consensus opinion is that there is no longer an unnecessary risk involved in participating in a course. The ARC recommends that the requirement for resuscitation training and re-certification be considered in the light of the current concerns ( .

All those that were booked into one of our public courses during this period has been contacted and offered a full refund or credit.

If you have any questions about this please get in touch with our team on or 1300 559 064.

We apologise for an inconvenience and hope to see you all soon!
