Complaints arise when a client is not satisfied with an aspect of our services and requests action to be taken to resolve the matter. Appeals arise when a client is not satisfied with a decision that we have made on an assessment.
All complaints and appeals are managed by Building Industry Training in a fair, efficient and effective manner, in an environment where student’s views are valued. Through the process of inquiry, all complaints and appeals are scrutinised to identify potential causes with a view to initiating corrective action to eliminate or mitigate the likelihood of reoccurrence.

Any student wishing to make a complaint can do so by completing the Complaints and Appeals form in the back of the Student Handbook, or request one from the administrative staff or trainer. A written complaint not on the provided form will still be considered in the same manner, providing there is sufficient information to make the investigation process feasible.

Informal complaints. During the initial stages of a complaint the complainant is encouraged to communicate directly with the trainer, RTO Manager or other staff member with whom they feel comfortable. If the complaint is resolved at this level then no further action is required.
Formal complaints. These are lodged in the Complaint Register and acknowledged in writing as soon as practical after receipt.
The complaint is brought to the attention of the Managing Director and forwarded through the continuous improvements process for investigation in a confidential, fair and sensitive manner.
After the complaint has been fully investigated, a written response will be provided to the complainant within 60 calendar days from lodgement. There is no cost for this process.

BITs and Pieces
What is a USI and do I really need one?
On 1 January 2015 it became mandatory for all students (in Australia) undertaking nationally recognised training to apply for a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This is an alphanumeric number assigned to you, which records all of your training and results in the one safe place. No more misplaced certificates or confusion about when and where you completed training. You will be able to manage your own records and print them out or send them to a potential employer or training organisation if you are undertaking further training. Your USI will stay with you throughout your life, but will be needed to enrol in any nationally accredited training that you undertake, so keep it recorded in a safe place.
