  1. Hi, If anyone was considering taking a first aid course in the UK before moving to Australia, I heard various different stories about UK courses being valid/recognised over there, so I contacted St. John's ambulance in New South Wales about it and received the following reply The requirement for first aid in the workplace in NSW is that the first aider must hold the National Unit of Competency - HLTFA301B Apply First Aid or to be the Occupational First Aider - HLTFA 403A Manage first aid in the workplace. Whilst it might be that much of the content is similar to the courses you will have undertaken in the UK – you must hold one or other of these certificates if you are the designated first aider. When you arrive in NSW – depending on your employment needs, you will may attend the refresher version of the course you require. In other words, the UK version of any first aid course will not be recognised by employers in Australia, and I also found out that they run courses weekly in most places and are a lot cheaper than the UK. Hope this helps anyone save their money over here. And I have just received my email telling me I have my Partner visa, sub class 100, so next month we go and start a new life. Best wishes to all, Dave.
  2. Does anyone know anything about Australian first aid requirements? I need to do a first aid course to get a certificate for my skills assessment. The website phrases it like this: "The applicant provides a current first aid certificate from a valid issuer in either Australia or a country or jurisdiction recognised by the APC (Australian Pharmacy Council)". Any idea who a 'valid issuer' would be - Red Cross? SJA? What level? Would an HSE-recognised emergency first aid at work course be suitable? Anyone else had to do this? Is pharmacy just the stupidest, most-long-winded skills assessment out there? This isn't even the actual skills assessment, it's just for them to assess my 'eligibility' to sit the exam! Which I can't take until June!!! Gaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh :arghh::arghh::arghh:

  6. Alistair Darling is considering helping fund new mortgages to aid stricken mortgage and housing markets, it has been reported. The Chancellor is said to be looking at proposals due to be mooted on Tuesday in Sir James Crosby's review of mortgage finance that could widen the scope of the Bank of England's £50 billion rescue package. The Treasury may seek to free up the log jam in mortgage funding markets by allowing banks to trade in securities backed by new mortgages in return for more easily tradable Government bills, according to the Financial Times. The scheme currently applies only to old mortgage assets held before the start of the year and lenders are anxious that the existing package is not enough to ease the deepening credit crisis. Sir James - the former chief executive of Halifax Bank of Scotland - is also understood to be working on proposals for a "kite-marking" system for high-quality mortgage-backed securities to instil confidence after the credit crunch devastated wholesale funding markets. But the Crosby review will hold off from making final recommendations until the autumn, with the Chancellor not understood to be planning any announcements until the Pre-Budget Report. Lenders have already voiced their concerns at the delay in taking further action to kick-start the mortgage market. The Council of Mortgage Lenders said earlier this month that the Government must "act swiftly" to resolve the mortgage drought. It warned that mortgage lending was set to halve this year, with the lack of financing expected to further hit the UK's property market and housebuilding sector. However, plans to extend the Bank of England's so-called Special Liquidity Scheme may meet with opposition from the central bank. Bank Governor Mervyn King said on launching the SLS in April that it was designed to "increase the liquidity of the banking system as a whole" in order to protect the wider economy. He said its aim was not to restore the mortgage markets to the "excessive lending" seen before the credit crunch hit last summer and that it would stop short of covering new mortgages as it did not want to be seen to be propping up the market. Sir James, who was in charge of HBOS between 2001 and 2006, was charged with leading the mortgage review in April. He is heading a team of outside experts and officials from the Bank of England and Financial Services Authority:biglaugh:

    Aussie First Aid

    A woman sitting in an Adelaide restaurant suddenly began to cough. After a few seconds it became apparent that she was in real distress, and two locals, Bruce and Brian sitting at the next table turned to look at her. "Kin ya swaller?" asked Bruce The woman signalled 'No!', desperately shaking her head. "Kin ya breathe?" asked Brian. The woman shook her head 'No!!!' With that, Bruce walked behind her, lifted up the back of her dress, yanked down her knickers and ran his tongue up and down her bottom. This shocked the woman into such a violent spasm that the obstruction flew out of her mouth and she began to breathe again. Bruce swaggered back to his table and took a deep swig of his beer. Brian said in admiration "Ya know Bruce, I'd heard of that bladdy Hind-Lick Manoeuvre, but that's the first time I ever seen somebody do it."
