Student Support

Additional training and tutorials

Every effort, within reason, will be made by AAMC Training staff to ensure a successful outcome for its students. Additional training and / or tutorial may be negotiated. Note: some options may incur additional costs. 

Reasonable Adjustment

Trainers/assessors are permitted to make any modification to the learning environment, certification requirements, training delivery or assessment method used to help students with disability to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without disability. 

AAMC Training, as an RTO, are obliged by law to make reasonable adjustment to ensure maximum participation of students with disability in teaching, learning and assessment activities. This includes: 

  • ensuring that course activities are sufficiently flexible;
  • providing additional support where necessary; and
  • offering a reasonable substitute within the context of the course where a student cannot participate.

AAMC Training will make every reasonable effort to ensure that it can accommodate a student’s needs. However, sometimes those needs are beyond the assistance that can reasonably be provided by AAMC Training (for the purposes of LLN assistance, “reasonable allowance” is defined as the provider being able to accommodate the student’s needs without significantly disadvantaging other student’s involvement in the course, or without causing the training provider significant financial disadvantage). 

Individuals who require additional help with their literacy and numeracy can access information about their nearest LLN provider by calling The Reading Writing Hotline (supported by the Department of Education and Training) on 1300 655 5061300 655 506 or refer to their website at http://www.readingwritinghotline.edu.au. Any costs incurred will be the responsibility of the student. 

If students require extra support or counselling, they are encouraged to make contact with a member of our team who will be eager to assist and refer them to the appropriate support services as listed below;
