Alcohol, Drug and Medication Usage
All students entering the MHRT premises may be required to undertake a random Drug and Alcohol Test.

All compulsory testing will be communicated from the client to the student prior to being enrolled in the training program.
The best person to judge if you are fatigued is yourself.
If a student is feeling fatigued to the point that it may affect the health and/or safety of themselves or those around them, they have a responsibility to report the fatigue to their program trainer or MHRT staff member
Where a student believes that another student is fatigued to the point that it may affect the health and/or safety of them and those around them, they have a responsibility to report this to their program trainer or MHRT staff member
Where a program trainer or MHRT staff member observes or is informed of a student’s possible fatigued condition, MHRT will evaluate the situation to determine whether the person’s wellbeing and/or training outcome will be affected. In this case, a possible consequence would be the student’s training being rescheduled.
All training programs offered by MHRT employ competency-based training methodologies. Competency-based training is a form of training and assessment that aims to produce a workforce equipped with the knowledge and skills required by industry.
To be assessed as competent, success must be achieved in all elements of the unit or competency (standard) relevant to the program being delivered. These units of competency have been developed and maintained by the relevant industries in conjunction with a number of state and federal industry training bodies. These units of competency and the associated qualifications are nationally recognised.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Under the Australian Qualifications Framework, competencies may be attained in a number of ways including formal and informal training, education, work experience of general life experience.
MHRT is committed to offering and raising a student’s awareness of our processes for:
Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) is a pathway for a student to show evidence of competency against relevant unit/s of competency. They must have evidence of previously attained skills and knowledge, which are assessed against varied methods appropriate to the individual, by an assessor with the applicable expertise in the subject, content of skills area, as well as knowledge of and experience in RPL assessment.
Mutual Recognition is the acceptance and recognition of Qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by another registered training organisation.
