Welcome to Maritime Career Training! On behalf of the staff at Maritime Career Training (MCT), we would like to welcome you.
MCT is a training organisation registered with an Australian government agency called the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). The regulations under which MCT is registered allow for businesses to provide services to their clients in partnership with other businesses without each having to be separately registered as long as certain obligations are met.
This handbook is designed to inform students about their rights and responsibilities whilst undertaking training with MCT.
To help you to understand the way our organisation works and to help you get the most from your studies, we are providing this Student Handbook which we trust answers the questions you have about studying with us. If not, please feel free to ask our Admin staff or your trainer.
Please take the time to read this handbook and acknowledgement that you have done so when you enrol. If you would like further clarification, please feel free to talk to one of our staff members.

Please take the time to read this handbook, especially in relation to legislation that may impact on your studies.
Trainers are responsible for ensuring all students are kept informed of any changes to legislation or MCT’s policies. Any changes affecting your studies or learning environment will be emailed to all currently enrolled students. Please ensure you keep MCT informed of any changes to your email address. This can be done by completing “Change of Address Notification Form available from our admin staff.
All staff members are here to assist you to learn and we encourage you to talk to us at any time to discuss any problems you may have.
We trust that your time with MCT is an enjoyable one and that the skills you learn here prove valuable in your chosen career.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Barry Barnes (Director) on 0418 243 042 or Eric Robb (Operations Manager) on 0424 277 728.

Introduction

Please note: throughout this document you will read references to the Chief Executive Officer and in some cases his nominated representative. For clarity, the nominated representative of the CEO may be the trainer in charge of the course particularly in relation to matters associated with the conduct of short duration courses.

Accidents

All accidents must be and recorded on the Incident Report Form (see Appendix B), which must be signed by the Chief Executive Officer or his nominated representative. Any action taken must be recorded. Follow-up will be completed the following day to ensure the student’s well-being.

Change of enrolment details

It is your responsibility to notify us of any change of name, address or employment, which occurs during the term of your studies with us. Please use the Change of Address Notification (Appendix D) to do this.

Complaints

MCT will deal with any complaint in an effective and timely manner. MCT has processes in place for all students to lodge complaints in relation to any matter.
In the event of a complaint the student should first approach the person with whom they have the complaint in an attempt to informally resolve the problem. If the complainant feels that this is not possible or they were unsuccessful in their own attempt at resolution, the student should seek the support of their Trainer or another staff member who will assist in providing a Complaint Form. (Appendix C)
All formal complaints must be recorded in writing. The Trainer will pass on your complaint form to the Chief Executive Officer who will record the complaint in the complaint register and initiate an investigation.
All complaints are reviewed at Management Review Meetings and where appropriate are fed back into the continuous improvement process. Results of all complaints are communicated in writing to the student and a copy of this communication is also kept on file, both on the complaints register and in the student’s individual file.
If you are dissatisfied with the way in which a complaint has been managed, we will refer you to the Queensland Government’s Disputes Resolution Department who operate a number of dispute resolution centres across the State. http://www.justice.qld.gov.au/justice-services/dispute-resolution

Course Withdrawals

If a student wishes to withdraw from a full-time or part-time course prior to completion of the normal expected training period offered by us, notice must be given in writing. As a general rule, no refund will be payable after the course has commenced, however, exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. See refund policy.
The student will be issued with a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for any units in which the student has been assessed as competent as recognition of completion of those units of study.

Induction and Code of Conduct

On the first day all new students are requested to register at reception at the appointed time. Students will be greeted and an orientation will be conducted which will include the following:
– Learning materials for the respective course will be provided
– Relevant Policies and procedures contained in the Student Handbook are explained
– Floor Plan Orientation (toilets, fire exits, kitchen, Legislation folder etc.) given
– Overview of the Evacuation procedure conducted
– Disclaimers completed and handed in

Academic Misconduct

MCT’s CEO will deal with any dishonest behaviour in assessment. Dishonest behaviour includes:
– Deliberate copying or attempting to copy the work of other students
– Using or attempting to use information prohibited from use in that sort of assessment.
– Submitting the work of another student as their own work.
– Plagiarism (i.e. taking and using as their own, the thoughts and writings of another with the intent to claim the work as their own)
– Consulting with peers throughout formal assessments.
Two verbal warnings will be given before cancelling the assessment marking assessment Not Competent (NC). Students involved in any of the above will be set a new assessment and will be counselled by the Chief Executive Officer.
In instances of misconduct, a student may be charged a re-sit fee of $50.00. An additional fee of $50 may also be charged to the student and if this is required it must be paid prior to the re-sit. The decision to impose these fees will be made by the Chief Executive Officer after examining all aspects of the case.
Further occurrence of academic misconduct will be recorded on the student’s file and suspension/ dismissal will be at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer.

Discipline

MCT will make all attempts to provide its training and assessment services in a spirit of co-operation and mutual respect. There are times however when a disciplinary action must be taken to ensure the safety and well-being of all students and staff. Trainers should make themselves aware of the procedures, should they become necessary to implement.
Examples of when disciplinary action may be required to be taken include when a student:
– brings onto or consumes on the premises, any drug of addiction or dependence (except drugs prescribed by a qualified medical practitioner)
– brings onto or consumes on the premises any alcohol
– exhibits any form of behaviour that is adversely affected by the influence of drugs or alcohol
– damages or removes any property or resource belonging to MCT or any training venue hired by MCT
– assaults (physically or verbally) any person or persons on the premises or any training venue hired by MCT
– fails to comply with any instructions given by a member of staff relating to the safety of any person or persons on the premises
– exhibits any form of conduct whilst on the premises that is considered to be aggressive, disorderly, disruptive, harassing or interferes with the comfort, safety or convenience of any person who is acting lawfully and entitled to be present
– enters any part of MCT premises or any other place to which students have access for the purpose of tuition, when not entitled to do so or having entered, refuses to leave said premises.
When disciplinary action is taken, the Chief Executive Officer will notify the student of the reason for the action.
– A verbal warning will be given to the student and documented on the individual’s file
– Where the behaviour continues after the verbal warning, the Chief Executive Officer will counsel the student and a written warning will be provided to the student. A copy of this warning will be noted and kept on the individual’s file
– In the event that the behaviour continues beyond the written warning, the student will be removed from the training program. Notification of removal will be made in writing and a noted copy will be placed on the student’s individual file
If a student wishes to express a complaint in relation to the disciplinary action taken, they have the opportunity to follow the MCT complaints procedure.
MCT expects that staff will maintain a professional and ethical working relationship with all other staff, management and students. Any breach of our disciplinary standards will be discussed with the Trainer and the Chief Executive Officer and the appropriate action will be taken.

Dress Code – Dress requirements are neat casual or business attire. Please note that shorts and thongs are not considered suitable attire. For some courses there may be required footwear or dress. Please remember that in first aid related courses there are practical activities that may involve kneeling or sitting on a floor so ensure you are comfortably attired as well as suitably attired giving consideration to your fellow students.
Behaviour at training events – Every student is expected to reflect the ideals and code of behaviour of MCT in their dealings with fellow students, members of staff and the general public. Students are expected to adhere to the rules and to co-operate in the effective running of MCT.
MCT strives to achieve the following “basic principles” of interpersonal behaviour:
– to be focused on the situation, issue or behaviour, not on the person
– to assist in maintaining the self-confidence and self-esteem of others
– to maintain constructive relationships with all staff and fellow students
– to take the initiative to assist in making things better
– to always lead by example
– to always respect the property of MCT, staff and fellow students
– to refrain from using inappropriate language with the understanding that to do so will not be tolerated
– to always turn off Mobile phones during classes
– to refrain from consuming food or drinks in non-designated areas
– MCT encourage the use of water bottles in classrooms
Every staff member and student should hold every other staff member and fellow student responsible for living up to these principles at all times.

First Aid

In the event of a student requiring First Aid, a trainer or staff member will administer First Aid and the student must complete the Incident Form. Should medication be required, students will be referred to a medical assistant and if necessary will be accompanied by a staff member. In the case of an emergency, staff will call an ambulance and stay with the student until it arrives.

Smoking

MCT premises (including classrooms, car parking areas, toilets and general office areas) are smoke-free zones. If students wish to smoke, they should do so outside the Training Centre boundaries.

Theft

As the premises of MCT are open to the public, students are advised not to leave their valuables unsupervised. MCT cannot be held responsible for anything which may be stolen from its premises.

The National VET Framework

The course in which you are enrolled will result in your achieving a nationally accredited qualification or a statement of attainment depending on the course. If you complete all requirements of a full course you will be awarded a Certificate. If you exit prior to completing all requirements you will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for units successfully completed prior to exiting. First aid related courses of short duration result in a statement of attainment to the successful student.
The course requirements are outlined in the VET Quality Framework and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) audits MCT to ensure compliance with these frameworks.
MCT has been audited within the first 12 months of operation to ensure compliance with the National VET Regulations and will be re-audited during its subsequent five-year registration periods. These standards and the auditing process are intended to provide the basis for a nationally- consistent, high quality vocational education and training system.
The National VET Regulation includes the requirement for RTOs to establish a quality training system and is a key driver of Australia’s economic and social growth. It is a national training system that provides the basis for high-quality, industry developed and nationally recognised training.
As an RTO, MCT adheres to this system and does all within its power to remain compliant. From time to time students are surveyed and their cooperation will assist this organisation in remaining compliant. Students may also be interviewed by the regulator in certain circumstances. Students will be invited to provide feedback through Course Evaluation Forms. These surveys are conducted to enable MCT to identify opportunities for improvement not only to training and assessment but also to services provided. MCT analyses the responses and acts upon information accordingly.

Sustainability

MCT is committed to ensuring that our actions and philosophies are environmentally sound, economically viable and socially equitable.

Student Records

As a student, you should be aware that our trainers are required to:
– supply in a timely manner accurate records of student’s academic performance for each unit of the course which the Trainer delivers and/or assesses
– supply in a timely manner as per MCT’s procedures, accurate attendance records of student(s) for each session they deliver
MCT has in place a policy and procedure for the collection, storage and protection of all the training records of individual students, thereby meeting training and assessment activity requirements. Assessment Results are recorded within twenty-one days from the date of assessment and students may request an update on progress at any time following this period.
Each individual student is assigned a personal file for storage of training records.
Student training documentation re stored in a secure manner (individual files in locked cabinets; electronic files with access by password only).
All Trainers/assessors involved in the training program are informed of their responsibilities under this policy. Requests for access to information must be in writing and the decision to release the information will remain the decision of MCT. See also Privacy Policy

Training and Assessment

Access to Student Training Records
Access to individual student training records must meet Commonwealth Privacy legislation and will be limited to:
– individuals wishing to access their own personal records
– individuals authorising releases of specific information to third parties in writing,
– MCT staff who require this information as part of their job role
– officers from ASQA and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) or their representatives for activities required under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations
– legal requirements (e.g. subpoena/search warrants/social service benefits/evidence act).
Students wishing to check progress towards completion are welcome to request this information. It is the organisation’s policy to attend to such requests within three working days. If for any reason this is not possible, you will be notified and advised of the date when the information will be available.

Academic Progress

It is expected that a student should demonstrate continuing progress, eventually achieving competency in all units undertaken. (See notes re competency based training and assessment).
Students are expected to participate actively in class discussions and activities, attend practicum and fulfil all course requirements. If students are unable to achieve competency at the first assessment in a unit, trainers will work with students to identify areas of need and support students efforts to achieve competency. Opportunities are provided for students to re-sit assessments.

Appeals Process

If you are dissatisfied with a judgment by an assessor, you are invited to lodge an appeal under MCT Appeals Process.
Please remember, if you wish to lodge an appeal it must be lodged immediately and no later than 7days from the date of the receipt of the assessment report. Staff will try to process any appeal as quickly as possible and reach a resolution within three working days so that you may continue learning activities and completion of your training program (if you are doing a longer duration course) or undertake a re-assessment if the appeals process suggests that course of action is the most appropriate.
If you follow the procedures listed below, the issue will be dealt with as quickly and effectively as possible:
1. Outline the reasons for the appeal using MCT Appeal Against Assessment Decision
2. Hand it to Administration within 7 days.
3. An opportunity to discuss the nature of the appeal with the assessor, the CEO and yourself will be arranged. You are welcome to invite a support person to attend the discussion. It is hoped the issue may be resolved at this discussion.
If the issue remains unresolved, then the appeal will be heard by an independent person/s and you will have the opportunity to formally present your case for resolution.
MCT attempts to resolve the issue(s) within three (3) working days from receipt of the lodgement of the appeal but mediation by an external party will take longer.

The results of any part of the process will be communicated in writing to all parties.
All correspondence and documentation will be kept on the client file for future reference as required.

Grounds for Appeal

An application for appeal will be considered where a student claims disadvantage because:
– the Trainer did not provide a subject outline,
– the Trainer varied without consultation or in an unreasonable way the assessment requirements as specified in the subject outline,
– assessment requirements specified by the Trainer were unreasonably or prejudicially applied to him or her
– it is believed that a clerical error has occurred in the documenting of the assessment outcome,
– there appears to be a discrepancy between the practical observation and the formal assessment.
If the appeal for re-assessment is upheld MCT will make all necessary arrangements to conduct the re-assessment of the student at a time that is mutually convenient for all parties concerned and if required the appeal will be heard by an independent person or panel. All appeals are recorded and reviewed in order to identify opportunities for improvement in the appeals process.

Training and Assessment Methods and Pathways

MCT has been approved by ASQA to deliver the qualifications/courses/units as listed on the national website. If you visit www.training.gov.au and enter MCT’s name in left search window, you will be able to view the training products listed within our scope.
Assessments should provide opportunity for MCT to be informed of the context and purpose of the assessment and the assessment process. This will include but will not be limited to information regarding assessment methods and alternative assessment methods if required to accommodate special needs or circumstances. Information sessions are included with the introduction of each subject to inform students of the assessment processes, number of assessments, types of assessments and the individual weighting of each assessment. Staff members are available to discuss and provide limited professional advice as to the outcomes of the assessment process and guidance on future options.
Students are advised that there are a number of pathways to qualifications and MCT provides you with the opportunity to identify the most appropriate pathway. This may be through:
– a formal learning process, such as the course in which you are currently enrolled
– work experience, such as being taught on the job how to do something or though
– Life experience or personal experience, such as a hobby or experience at home

Study options available may include:
Full time – this option requires classroom attendance as outlined in the course outline
Part Time – this option allows the student time to undertake other responsibilities, such as work, home duties etc.
Flexible – a combination of classroom and home study
Please note not all classes provide these options and students are encouraged to discuss this with their trainer.

Students should be aware of the assessment criteria used by the trainers at MCT

Assessment requiring essay or report writing is based on the following criteria:
1. Answering the Question
Students must address what the question is asking. Look for key words that indicate how the question is to be approached and the information that is to be included. Sequence the answer to appropriately develop logical arguments.
2. Referencing
Any quotation or content that has been obtained from published sources must be referenced. This must be done at the end of a quotation and extended in the bibliography.
3. Accuracy of Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation
Accurate spelling, grammar and punctuation will ensure the trainer can correctly interpret what is written. Students should use the tools available (dictionary, thesaurus, spell-check on computers etc.) and must proof-read before handing in.
All assignments must be the individual’s own work. Trainers are responsible for ensuring that any “suspect” assessments are thoroughly scrutinised. Any irregularities will be reported to the Chief Executive Officer and dealt with accordingly. Students should keep a copy of their assessments (where relevant – longer courses).

Format

Cover sheet
Use one side of page only
Assignments to be word-processed*
Double spacing to be used
Use correct format, i.e. essay or report format, appropriate headings
Bibliography
*NB: exception allowed where students are unable to access appropriate equipment. Hand written assignments must be neat and legible.

Statement of Authorship

All assignments projects, reports, papers and assignments submitted to a course are expected to be the student’s own work. Students should always take great care to distinguish their own ideas and knowledge from information derived from sources. The term “sources” includes not only published primary and secondary material but also information and opinions gained directly from other people.
All information taken from other sources must be clearly referenced and authorship acknowledged. Any student who, for whatever reason, submits work that is not their own or fails to acknowledge sources, will be required to re-enrol in the relevant subject/s. Every assessment must be accompanied by a student’s statement of authorship, which is included MCT’s Assessment Cover Sheet in each assessment booklet.

Assessment Re-sit Procedure

Stage 1: Student undertakes in-class assessment
Students will be notified within 14 days of undertaking an assessment of their performance.
If a student does not attend the in-class assessment, they should notify their trainer as to why they did not attend and if due to illness a medical certificate must be produced. If the assessment is a practical or no evidence is provided a $50 administrative fee may be charged for re-sitting the assessment.*
Stage 2: Student deemed Not Competent in FIRST assessment
Students who are deemed to be Not Competent are to be provided with information identifying the areas in which they failed to achieve competency.
Students will then have the opportunity to repeat the assessment task within 7 days of notification.
Stage 3: Student deemed Not Competent in FIRST re-sit
If the student is again deemed Not Competent they will be provided with information identifying the areas in which they failed to achieve competency.
The student must then participate in a new assessment task within 7 days of notification; a fee of $50 may be required to be paid prior to the assessment.
Stage 4: Student deemed Not Competent in SECOND re-sit
If the student is still unable to demonstrate competency, then the student will be required to repeat the unit of competency.
MCT will determine the time at which the unit will be available.
The student may be liable to pay a fee to be determined by MCT to cover the cost of extra tuition.
* The decision to charge this fee (or portion of the fee) will be made by the CEO who will consider all aspects of the case prior to making the decision.

Competency Based Training and Assessment

Competency Based Training is always focussed on what the student will be able to do at the end of training. There is not so much concern with what the inputs are or how the student got there. So long as the student can provide quality evidence that demonstrates achievement of the listed competencies, it does not matter who taught him or her, how or when the training takes place, what resources are used or of what the content material of the curriculum consists.
All assessments conducted by MCT note that the following directives will be observed as listed in the Competency Standards for Assessment outlined in The Training and Education Training Package (TAE10)
– Competency Based Assessment – Assessment must take place within a competency based assessment system within established procedures as defined in the Guidelines for Conducting Assessment from the National Training Package for Training and Education TAE10),
– Validity – Assessment methods will be valid, that is, they will assess what they claim to assess,
– Reliability – Assessment procedures must be reliable, that is, they must result in consistent interpretation of evidence from the learner and from context to context,
– Fairness – Assessment procedures will be fair, so as not to disadvantage any learners. Assessment procedures will:
– be equitable, culturally and linguistically appropriate,
– involve procedures in which criteria for judging performance are made clear to all participants,
– employ a participatory approach,
– provide for students to undertake assessments at appropriate times and where required in appropriate locations.
– Flexibility – Assessment procedures must be flexible, that is, they should involve a variety of methods that depend on the circumstances surrounding the assessment,

Recognition of Prior Learning

Individuals seeking RPL will be able to access an RPL process as described in our Recognition of Prior Learning Information Kit,
– Due Date Information – The trainer will advise students of the final date for the receipt of an assessment when the assessment is handed out. Assessments will only be accepted after this date in case of illness (doctor’s certificate must be provided) or other exceptional circumstances (at the discretion of the trainer).

Credit Transfer Policy

Credit Transfer is available to all students enrolling in MCT’s courses which are within MCT’s scope of registration.

Credit Transfer is credit towards a qualification granted to students on the basis of outcomes gained by a student through participation in courses or national training package qualifications with another Registered Training Provider, in line with MCT’s Recognition of Qualifications Policy.
Please note that in accordance with the suggested refresher dates for CPR and first aid training, it is unlikely a claim for credit transfer would be made by people wishing to enrol in a short duration CPR or first aid related course.

Fees and Refunds

Fees are levied on all courses, details of which are contained in the relevant course information sheet. MCT management is responsible for ensuring that fees paid in advance are accounted for in a separate financial control centre and are clearly identified within the student record management system. All fees are paid at the time of enrolment. MCT operates a refund policy, which is fair and equitable and in accordance with policy and procedures as set out in MCT’s Operations Policy and Procedures.

Refunds are issued when:

– A student provides written notice of withdrawal prior to commencement of course (see timeframes below)
– Review of Credit transfer indicates that the student does not have to undertake the course / part course

Refunds are not issued when:

– changes occur in student work hours
– it becomes inconvenient for a student to travel to class
– a student moves interstate
– a student changes jobs or becomes retrenched
– a student leaves before finishing course / unit of competency.
– a student is expelled from the college for a serious breach of discipline
If a student withdraws from a course and supplies MCT with written notification of more than 30 days before the course commencement date, 90% of any course fees paid at that point will be refunded.
If a student withdraws less than 30 days but before 7 days prior to the scheduled course commencement date, no refund will be paid but the student will be offered a transfer to another course.
If the student withdraws from the course within 7 days of the scheduled start date, no refund or transfer will be offered.

As a general rule, no refunds will be payable after the commencement of a course, however, exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Requests for refunds must be made in writing to the Chief Executive Officer, via the MCT postal address, stating all the details of the claim for refund. The request may be posted or handed to reception.
MCT will make payment of all refunds within 4 weeks of receipt of a written application for refund. Refunds will be made to the person who entered into the contract with MCT.
Students have the right to take further action under Australia’s consumer protection laws if they feel aggrieved.

Refunds paid if MCT defaults:

If MCT cannot provide a course for whatever reason, a full refund will be made. This agreement does not remove the right to take further action under Australia’s consumer protection laws. The participant is able also to pursue other legal remedies that are appropriate.
All bank charges incurred by MCT in issuing the refund will be met by the student.
Students are not permitted transfer course fees to another student without first seeking the approval of the Chief Executive Officer

Issuing of qualifications and statements of attainment

MCT is the authorised and approved authority for issuing nationally recognised awards. MCT(or in the case of short duration first aid courses, an authorised training partner) will issue all AQF qualifications and statements of attainment within 21 days of the training programs’ completion. All qualifications and statements of attainment issued by MCT comply with the standards outlined within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) implementation handbook and in accordance with the requirements of The National Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations including where applicable, the use of logos.
Students must be assessed as competent in all units of competency before being issued a qualification (Certificate/ Diploma/Advanced Diploma) for the course in which they are enrolled. Students will only be issued a qualification upon completion of their course. MCT will issue each student an interim academic transcript by the end of each semester and another one by the end of the course.
MCT only issues AQF qualifications and statements of attainment within its scope of registration that certify the achievement of qualifications or industry/enterprise competency standards from nationally endorsed training packages or qualifications, competency standards or modules from accredited vocational courses. Students are able to download the Employability Skills for the training package qualification they are completing by visiting employabilityskills.training.com.au.
Students are encouraged to take care of certificates issued by MCT. Replacement certificates and/or Statements of Attainment will incur a cost of $50.00 per document. Replacement certificates will only be provided upon submission of Driver’s Licence or other form of ID.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN)

MCT aims at all times to provide a positive and rewarding learning experience for all of its students. The enrolment form requests provision of information regarding each student’s LL&N requirements or any other special learning needs. In the event of LL&N becoming an issue, the Administration Staff will contact the student to discuss their requirements.

Students must ensure that they have discussed with the Chief Executive Officer (or their appointed representative) any concerns they may have about their capacity to participate because of any Language, Literacy or Numeracy difficulties. MCT will offer to any student at enrolment a reading and comprehension exercise to ascertain suitability for enrolment into a course.
Where language, literacy and numeracy competency is essential for students, MCT will make every effort to ensure that each participant is adequately supported to enable them to complete their training. Some examples of the type of support that MCT can offer include:
Literacy
– Providing students only essential writing tasks,
– Provision of handouts in an audio format via either cassette tape or on CD,
– Consideration of the use of group exercises so that the responsibility for writing rests with more than one person,
– Provision of examples and models of completed tasks,
– Ensure that documents and forms are written and formatted in plain English,
– Use of clear headings, highlighted certain key words or phrases and provided explanations of all technical terms used,
– Assessments can be conducted using the interview technique where required.
Language
– Present information in small chunks,
– Speak clearly, concisely and not too quickly,
– Give clear instructions in a logical sequence,
– Give lots of practical examples,
– Encourage students to ask questions,
– Ask all questions to ensure students understand.
Numeracy
– Ask students to identify in words, what the exact problem is and how they might solve it,
– Show students how to do the calculations through step by step instructions and through examples of completed calculations,
– Help students to work out what maths/calculations/measurements are required to complete the task,
– Encourage the use of calculators (if applicable) and demonstrate how to use them.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning is a term that covers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) and Skills Recognition. The term “recognition processes” refers to assessment processes that enable recognition of competencies currently held, regardless of how, when or where the learning occurred. Under the VET Quality Framework, competencies may be attained a number of ways. This includes through any combination of formal or informal training and education, work experience or general life experience. In order to grant recognition of prior learning/current competency, the assessor must be confident that the candidate is currently competent against the endorsed industry or enterprise competency standards of Training Packages or competency outcomes specified in Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) accredited courses. The evidence may take a variety of forms and could include certification, references from past employers, testimonials from clients and work samples. The assessor must ensure that the evidence is authentic, valid, reliable, current and sufficient.
Knowledge and skills can be acquired in a variety of ways:
– Through a formal learning process, such as attending school or completing a short course,
– Through work experience, such as being taught on the job how to do something
– Life experience or personal experience, such as a hobby or experience at home.
There are no limits on where or how the skills have been acquired
MCT has an established RPL process and recognises all AQF qualifications and statements of attainment issued by other registered training organisations.
The procedures for applying for Recognition are:
1. The potential student is informed of the course contents and of the existence of an RPL process prior to/or at the time of enrolment.
2. If the RPL MCT wishes to make an application for RPL, they are invited to verbally discus their basis for RPL, the purpose of this is to prevent poorly supported claims from being made and to ensure that the potential RPL MCT is fully aware of the RPL process.
3. If MCT decides to proceed with the RPL process then, upon payment of the prescribed sum, they will be issued with the RPL kit, containing:
a. An RPL application form, outlining the basic information about the application and the units of competency they are making claim for.
b. A guide for the portfolio of evidence that the student will need to amass to show the support their claim for RPL; three forms of evidence from the list below will be acceptable:
i. letters or statements for experts attesting to MCT’s ability
ii. samples of work or documentation completed
iii. certificates from courses attended,
iv. details of participation in activities, this may include resumes, or other types of records
v. videos demonstrating skills,
c. The portfolio of evidence will be assessed by a competent person.
d. The assessment will be determined and results forwarded in writing to MCT.
e. MCT has an opportunity to appeal if they feel that this is appropriate, in which case the appeal is managed from the Academic Appeal process.
f. Included with the assessment decision will be feedback informing the student of the reasons for the decision.
RPL Fee: RPL will be charged at a comparable rate to that of the unit of competency.
Please note that for short courses of one or half a day such as CPR and first aid, it is unlikely that RPL will be applied for or granted given the Australian Resuscitation Council’s policy on renewing skills at set intervals.

Recognition of Qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by other Registered Training Organisations

All AQF qualifications and statements of attainment issued by other registered training organisations will be fully recognised by MCT.

Students enrolling in MCT courses will be able to use their existing qualifications (or part thereof) issued by other RTOs as Credit Transfer, provided that the Credit Transfer complies with the Packaging Rules for the qualification being sought.
An example may be that of a Certificate III qualification. Units of competency within the Certificate III qualification may be able to be used as Credit Transfer for a Certificate III course offered by MCT, effectively reducing the duration of the Certificate III course.
