Preparing for study at SCHI

Studying at the Sunshine Coast Health Institute (SCHI) this semester? If so, make sure you're covered before you start.

Mandatory online training modules

You must complete your mandatory online training modules before classes start as part of your SCHI onboarding, following the instructions below.

Even if you have studied at SCHI before, some of the mandatory training modules you previously completed expire every 12 months and must be updated to ensure compliancy.

Your SCHI Security ID card

SCHI students will need an SCHI Security ID card in addition to a USC student ID card.

You can be issued with your SCHI Security ID card once you have completed your online training modules. Find out how to get your card below.

Please note: Once you've been issued with your SCHI Security ID card, please keep it until you have completed all study as part of your program at SCHI or all placements at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) and then return it to SCUH hospital security.

SCHI COVID-19 guidelines

COVID-19 safe practices continue and face masks must be worn indoors. Masks are available from SCHI Reception, ground floor.

How to complete your compulsory training modules

You are required to complete the following mandatory online training before classes start:

  • Code of Conduct
  • Fraud Control Awareness

To complete the above compulsory training modules you must:

  • Log in to the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) Learning Management System (SC-LOL) using your UniSC student email as your user name and a temporary password. The password will be sent to you from approximately 1-2 weeks prior to classes commencing
  • You will then be prompted to change your password.
  • Complete the above three mandatory modules.

You will receive an email in your student email account from the Learning Management System (SC-LOL) Team advising you when the below modules are due to be updated. If your online training modules are due for renewal, please ensure you update the mandatory requirements by the renewal due date. If you don't, it will prevent you from participating in your SCHI courses:

  • First Response Evacuation Instructions and Emergency Colour Codes
  • Code of Conduct
  • Fraud Control Awareness

Returning students - Mandatory training

Students returning after 12 months will not receive an email from SC-LOL (Learning Management System), but are required to complete the expired modules prior to commencement of classes at SCHI. Please logon to SC-LOL and check your training transcript to identify which modules need to be completed again.

Students returning to SCHI within 12 months will not receive an email from LMS and do not need to redo their training.

If you need technical assistance or log on details please contact the SC-LOL Team.

General Evacuation Instructions - additional mandatory requirement - first week at SCHI

The General Evacuation Instructions is an additional SCHI mandatory requirement. This must be completed each time you are enrolled in classes at SCHI even if within 12 months.

This will be delivered by your Course coordinator in Week 1 as part of your first class. Following this, you must complete and submit an electronic form within two days.  Link to this electronic form will be emailed to you.

If you don’t attend class in the first week, you must complete the General Evacuation Instructions online by viewing the General Evacuation Instructions PowerPoint (embedded in form) and complete the electronic form via link.

How to get and return your SCHI Security ID card

After you have completed the above modules AND have received an email from Hospital Security (SCUH.ID.Cards) advising that your card is ready for printing,  you must provide a printed copy of your mandatory training modules completion transcript to Hospital Security staff at their office on the ground floor of the main hospital building, view map. Your SCHI Security ID card will only be printed once this is sighted. Hospital Security hours of business: Monday-Friday between 0800 and 1530 only. Please return your Security ID card to Hospital Security upon completion or discontinuation of study.

Please note you may experience delays during peak times in receiving email details from both the SC-LOL and Hospital Security Teams.

TIP: your SCHI access card will only work if you keep the pouch away from all other cards/papers due to sensitive SCHI access card readers.
