- Once you are happy you have taken in all the learning material information commence your assessment.

Repeat the above steps for your next subject/s.
Certificate III, IV and Diploma students please note not all subjects will have additional guides and videos provided on the MAT Health Clinic website however you will find other useful information such as legislation, policies and procedures, forms and templates, health and safety, infection control, communicating with special needs workers and patients and much more.
Please note, those students completing our short courses (including Medical Reception and Terminology) are automatically classified as online study mode students.
For those students completing a Certificate or Diploma qualification, you were given the choice upon enrolment to select either the Full Online or the Hardcopy with online assessment option.
If you opted for online studies you will receive an email containing your login details into our MAT online Learning Management System (LMS) soon after your enrolment is processed. We strongly suggest that you save the URL in your favourites for easy on-going access. Please make a note of your login details for future use. Your first unit of study will be located in the dashboard.
If you opted for Hardcopy workbooks with online assessment your workbooks will be mailed out to you. You will receive a tracking number so that you can track your parcel and estimate its arrival. It can take up to 7 business days for parcels to be delivered.
To receive a satisfactory result for the assessments, participants must fully complete all sections of the assessment for the unit to the required standard.
Each assessment task has a section for the Assessor to record the assessment outcome as either “Satisfactory” or “Not Satisfactory”. For you to be awarded a competent result for the unit of competency, you must complete all assessment tasks satisfactorily.
Assessors must ensure that feedback is provided to you after each assessment, this may include asking you to reconsider some of your answers to the submitted responses and/or advice to broaden your understanding of the assessment task.
Once an assessment decision has been made for this unit of competency, the Assessor will complete the Evidence Summary Sheet by recording either a “Competent” or “Not Competent” result.

- Review your learning material.

- Submit the assessment.
Note: Resubmissions are required within 14 business days or less. You will get up to three assessment resubmission opportunities before a unit of competency will be deemed ‘Not Yet Competent’. Students may then re-enrol in the unit or appeal the decision.
Your feedback is very important to us as it helps us to improve our services. After each assessment has been submitted, you will be sent a feedback request. In addition, once you have completed your course you will be required to provide feedback. We welcome and encourage feedback at any stage of your course.
