The provision of information, instruction, training and supervision is an essential component of any risk management strategy. A robust training and assessment program is fundamental to the safety of not
only those conducting tasks, but also other workers and people who may be affected by their work.
Can our training and assessment programs be more robust? Have we let complacency slip in? Have we stopped training and assessing in some areas because “it hasn’t happened for a while”?
During this Workshop, coordinated by the Resources Training Council, we will explore these questions and more.
This Workshop will be coordinated by Jim Munro, Chief Executive Officer, Resources Training Council (RTC)
Nationally recognised, competency-based training was introduced into Australia in the 1990s. The aim of Training Packages and national qualifications was to ensure Australian industries could:
Identify the minimum skills and knowledge required by workers
Issue qualifications to workers
Identify career paths for workers
Ensure transferability of skills
After 30 years, have we achieved these goals?
The outcomes of recent reviews would suggest a lack of consultation with relevant industry stakeholders has resulted in Training Packages and qualifications that are in fact, not fit for purpose.
Fit for Purpose Outcomes
Through this Workshop, RTC will introduce you to 10235NAT Course in Field-based Training and Assessment and demonstrate how this “fit for purpose” program should be reflected in all training
delivered to our industry internally or externally.
