Digital First Aid Certificate Trial

by | Jun 28, 2024 | Health, Media Release | 0 comments

In a milestone for digital identification in NSW, the NSW Government is trialing the first verifiable credential to be added to the state’s new Digital Wallet.

As part of a trial run in partnership with St John Ambulance, a group of first responders, employees and members will have access to a Digital First Aid Certificate as a verifiable credential through the Service NSW app.

The Digital First Aid Certificate is the first verifiable credential to be trialled by an Australian government, and it follows the successful launch of the digital renewal option for the Working with Children Check (WWCC) late last year, with more than 21,200 people having now renewed their WWCC digitally and have saved about an hour by doing so online rather than in person.

Feedback received during the trial will also be used to improve the user experience and design of the Digital Wallet for future verifiable credential roll outs.
