Tubal Pty Ltd has been appointed by the WA Department of Health to deliver and issue the Group of Competencies related to the Aquatic Facilities Group 2, 3 and 4.
WA Department of Health Regulations require that the Operator of a Group 3 or 4 Aquatic Facility (ie. swimming pool) hold these Group of Competencies delivered by an approved Aquatic Facility Training Program, such as Tubal.
Tubal’s process acknowledges the skills and experience of participants who have been adequately caring for the organisation’s pool as part of their job role. All assessment and learning takes place on-the-job through Tubal’s online E-Learning System at a pace that suits the participant and the business – no need for workbooks or assignments.
Participants will be required to demonstrate their current skills in managing and caring for the pool they are responsible for and, if necessary, adopt any skills or management procedures that are not already being addressed.
Unit Selection (Core & Electives
Participants are required to complete all units listed below:
HLTWHS001 Participate in workplace health and safety
SISCAQU001 Test pool water quality
SISCAQU003 Maintain aquatic facility plant and equipment
SISCAQU004 Develop and implement pool water maintenance procedures
The Technical Operator of a Group 2 Aquatic Facility is also required to hold the following competencies:
SISCAQU202A Perform basic water rescues (the equivalent of a bronze medallion)
HLTAID003 Apply first aid (the equivalent of a current First Aid Certificate)
An Operations & Risk Management Manual for Swimming Pools will be provided to each aquatic facility organisation as part of attaining this Group of Competencies with Tubal. This is in place of an Operator being required to have an employee holding a Patron Rescue or Emergency Care qualification.
Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Tubal offers all participants the opportunity to have existing skills and knowledge recognised through Recognition of Prior Learning and Recognition of Current Competencies. Participants may be eligible to receive RPL and RCC for units based on their work background, qualifications, working in the community, volunteering and life experiences (such as hobbies, sport and recreation).
Tubal’s Assessors will determine a participant’s competency against:
- Answers to established underpinning knowledge questions
- Performance feedback from Employer/Manager/Supervisor confirming participant is meeting all requirements of each unit of competency
- Demonstrated performance of designated tasks by the participant
- Participant self-assessment against designated tasks
- Historical information pertaining to past experience and work history eg. Resume/CV and/or verbal details.
