You should consult with PTG for advice on this process.

03.2 Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL recognises your existing experience gained through life or work for which you may not have obtained a formal qualification. If you are able to supply valid, sufficient, current and authentic evidence of having the skills and knowledge required for any or all of the required units for this qualification, you may be eligible for RPL and should consult with PTG for advice on this process.
Units of competency are dependent on your individual requirements to attain a certificate in your desired course.
As of 1st July 2018 the AMSA final assessment (AMSA orals) were replaced by the AMSA Maritime Practical Assessment (AMPA) final assessment.

The AMPA was designed to replace the oral examination process with a practical approach to licensing assessment. The purpose of the AMPA is to assess an individual’s competency against the performance requirements of a specific AMSA license outcome.

The AMPA is delivered by Paradigm Training Group (PTG) in accordance with AMSA regulations to allow students to successfully complete their AMSA final assessment and gain their low complexity interim certificate of competency (Interim license) prior to submitting the required licencing evidence to AMSA for processing.
 

How do you Complete the AMPA?

If you are a new Paradigm learner enrolling into a Maritime qualification previous to 1st July 2018 and have selected the option to complete an AMPA, you will have the opportunity to do so as part of your five day maritime training and assessment workshop. (Please note, the five days are a minimum requirement).

If you have previously completed a maritime qualification with another RTO or more than 12 months prior to the 1st of July 2018, and would like to complete an AMPA for Coxswain Grades 2 or 1 the following will apply:
  • Attend a maritime training and assessment workshop for a minimum of two days, where you will be assessed against the required competencies. If during the initial assessment you are found to be ‘Not Yet Competent’, you will have the opportunity to;
Remain for the rest of the workshop and continue your assessment until found competent
Book in to a later workshop and be re-assessed
For more information regarding the AMPA [click here].
The ICoC is a 60 day interim license issued by PTG to seafarers who have successfully completed their licensing requirements as per the qualifications criteria.

To complete your ICoC you are required to book an appointment with PTG where your documents listed at section 13 will be checked and verified.

Please contact 1300 161 640 or info@paradigmtraining.edu.au to book an appointment.

aXcelerate has enabled PTG to deliver the latest innovations in education solutions by automating the enrolment, training and assessment processes.” – Rikky Burkett Director of PTG. This management system can be accessed via a portable electronic device (e.g. tablet, laptop, mobile phone) allowing our Trainers/ Assessors to easily assess students in real time. Our staff can record comments, video, photographs and practical observation results even when offline which is a huge advantage during our practical student workshops.
