How does MTA Training work?

Training delivered by MTA NSW occurs at the workplace through qualified Trainers facilitating one-on-one theory and practical sessions. This allows the employer to become actively involved in the training of their learners. Employers also benefit from the exchange of feedback with our Trainers being at the workplace.

MTA NSW delivers training and assessment at regular intervals throughout the entire duration of the qualification. The delivery is planned so that the foundation units of competence are completed prior to the more complicated units of competence. This way the learner can build on their knowledge and experience as the training progresses. In turn the employer will set tasks for the learner which reflects this progress.

The MTA NSW Trainers are constantly monitoring and guiding the learners throughout the delivery of their training. As the training is taking place within the workplace, employers and learners have a far greater choice in terms of how to engage with the learning and assessment resources, order of delivery and unit selection within the qualification.

All learners are treated equally, having regard to their particular needs, in order to ensure the provision of every reasonable opportunity for the learner to acquire the competencies of the qualification.
