This lets them see all their training results, from all their previous providers. A USI Number will stay with the student for life and must be recorded with any nationally recognized VET course they undertake.

Training Arrangements

Class sessions are planned to ensure that students have a mixture of practical and theoretical components and those classes cater for a wide variety of learning styles. Additionally, workplace practices and environments will be regularly simulated and used to conduct skills-based assessments in accordance with unit requirements.

Unsupervised Studies may include research, readings from related textbooks and continuing to work on assessment tasks. Students are provided with the study guides to support learning.

Support ServicesEducational and support services are available to meet the needs of the students. Support is provided to all students who have any needs, questions or difficulties regarding their current training or guidance to their future career

development. The aim is to provide students with the support and information they need to help their training and career path. There are procedures of RIC to identify the needs of students throughout the student life cycle at college, from enrolment

(e.g. acknowledge needs through LLN test and Course Entry Interview Form) and training (e.g. special circumstances and intervention strategies) to 

completing (e.g. financial plans) and guiding for future careers (e.g. career counselling).

Student course progress will be carefully monitored and trainers will identify and report to the academic support staff\RTO Manger, if a student is facing challenges in completing projects and assessments, time management, research skills. Trainers will ensure that academic support and counselling (where required) services are provided to these students. Students will be encouraged to access additional support where course progress requirements do not meet.

RTO Manger and/or student support officer(s) will organise meeting with identified students and discuss an intervention strategy which may involve one or more of the following support services to avail as required but not limited to:

  • Guide the students to enrol in an ELICOS course for additional English language support
  • One on one (or a small group) support with the specialist trainer
  • Provision of additional attempts to complete assessments
  • Extension of enrolment where students require additional time to complete the course (as part of intervention Strategy).

However, the quality of the qualification will not be compromised.

Assessment Arrangements

Assessment will be conducted individually/in groups. Students will be provided with a Student Assessment Booklet and necessary instructions for each unit of competency/cluster/topic which includes:

  • A full description of all assessment tasks for the unit of competency
  • Assessment instructions for each unit of competency
  • Assessment resources for each unit of competency
  • Details about when assessment will occur
  • Details about assessment submission

There are a variety of assessment methods used for this qualification including:

  • Written questions
  • Projects
  • Case studies
  • Role Plays
  • Research activities
  • Reports
  • Practical Demonstration

Students will be required to complete assessments in class and there will be a need for some work to be done as self-paced learning.

Students will be advised by the trainer and assessor about the assessment requirements for each unit at the commencement of delivery for that unit. Submission of assessment tasks will be in person to the trainer/assessor.


All the students will be given an opportunity for re-assessment. Each student has three (3) attempts to achieve a competent outcome, including two re-submission attempts. Student will only work on the component(s) of the Task(s) that were marked “Not Satisfactory”. The re-assessment must be completed within the specified time frame provided by the trainer/assessor after assessment feedback given to the student by trainer/assessor. Please note that RIC will provide two (2) chances for re-assessment at no cost.

If student is not able to achieve competency with these opportunities, student is required to repeat the unit at own cost which will also impact on student’s extension of study period.

In case of practical tasks like role-playing, student has to redo the task by arranging the time and date with trainer/assessor.

RIC’s Reasonable Adjustments


In line with Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015, RIC will follow its Reasonable Adjustments Policy and Procedures for students who require a reasonable adjustment made to their training and assessment tasks for Units of Competency within this qualification to cater for their specific needs.  This process will be communicated to all students prior to their enrolment, at orientation, in their Student Handbook and as well as in Assessment tools.


course progress


Student must maintain satisfactory course progress. At a minimum, successfully completing or demonstrating competency in more than 50% of the course requirements in a given study period is considered to be satisfactory course progress. If academic progress falls below 50% for two consecutive terms, RIC will report student to the Department of Home Affairs for not achieving satisfactory course progress. Risk interventions will be implemented on ongoing basis to identify the students at risk and will organize a student support plan for individual students.
Course Credit

RIC can grant credit towards the course for units of competency that have been already completed with another RTO or authorized issuing organization. RIC can also grant Credit for subjects or units that have been completed where equivalence can be established between the unit in your course, and the subject or unit you have completed.

There is no charge to apply for Credit.

To apply, fill in the Credit Application Form and submit it as a part of your enrolment.

* Note that where student has been granted credit, this will reduce the course duration and the student will be informed of this in writing.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where skills and knowledge that you have gained through work and life experience and other unrecognised training can be formally recognised. RIC has a process that has been structured to minimise the time and cost to applicants and provides a supportive approach to students wishing to take up this option.  Students should ideally apply for RPL at the time of enrolment but they may also apply up to 2 weeks into your course.

During the entry process and pre-training interview stage, RIC will discuss the process and options for RPL with the student.  Suitability is often determined on how much experience the student has in a certain area, including work history and previous training. If RPL is determined as a possibility, students will be provided with a kit that will guide them in working through each unit to determine relevant skills and experience and identify whether they would be able to provide the required evidence.

A trainer/assessor will be available to assist the student throughout this process.

* International students should note that where they are granted RPL, this will reduce their course duration and they will be informed of this in writing.


The areas in which a student may appeal a decision made by RIC may include (but is not limited to):

  • assessment decisions and outcomes,
  • deferral, suspension or cancellation decisions made in relation to a student’s enrolment, or
  • any other conclusion/decision that is made after a complaint has been dealt with by college in the first instance.

For any further information on any Policy and procedures, please refer to the Website/Student handbook.
