MediTrain has a formal process for student complaints which is available upon request.

Students with a complaint should initially approach their trainer to express their concern as soon as possible. The trainer will endeavour to resolve the concern. If unresolved, the student should complete a Student Complaints Form. The concern will then be assessed by the Director who will endeavour to resolve the issue.

If the concern is still unresolved, an independent person or panel will be nominated to deal with the concern. The student will be able to formally present his/her case if they choose to do so and will be able to nominate another person of their choosing to attend. A written statement of the outcome will be provided to the student which will include the reasons for the decision.

If the student is still unhappy with the outcome, the concern will be referred to the Training Accreditation Council for further action.

If you are not satisfied with an assessment result, or you feel you have been unfairly dealt with please feel free to lodge an appeal.  MediTrain have an Appeals Process and Appeals Form which we would be happy to provide and discuss with you.

Students are welcome to access their records at any time.  Please feel free to ask your trainer or contact Elizabeth Davis, Managing Director on 1300 883 945.

On the completion of your training, you will be asked to fill in an evaluation sheet. This information assists us in maintaining a high standard of training and to facilitate improvement to the quality of our services.

Students will also be given “trainer to student” feedback on completion of the training program.

All students are welcome to participate in the Medical Reception or Pharmacy Assistant Course.

Please feel free to contact the office for further assistance if required.

All assessments and/or homework given to you must be completed and submitted on the date specified. This is in order for trainers to mark your assessments and provide you with feedback or request further evidence if required; before certification can be issued. Should there be any delay in submission, please advise your trainer ASAP by email to arrange an extension if needed. Late submissions with no previous contact or arrangement made may incur a late fee as the trainer will not be able to complete the appropriate marking and documentation within the required time frames. Please refer to the Administration Fees in this booklet.

It is important that you keep a copy of all assessments as MediTrain will hold a minimum of 2 students assessments for each unit delivered. You will receive feedback as to your outcome; however the marked work may be retained for audit purposes.

Submission guidelines and assessment requirements are outlined for each unit and are contained in this booklet. Please ensure to read thoroughly and ask any questions should you need further clarification.
