Post implementation briefing for training and assessment providers
Change to Capability or Competence Arrangements | Training Solutions | Industry – October 2014

Who does this affect?

All industry providers with trainers and assessors currently approved to deliver and/or assess current on track plant (OTP) training and competence Sponsors of the current competence Machine Controller Material Handler
What is changing?
Following on from the September 2013 briefing and as a result of feedback since go live, we have identified process issues with the implementation.
As detailed in Note 3 of the MC_CC_MO_CO OTP_OTM attached flowchart we have identified that upon successful completion of Machine Controller Material Handler training, Machine Controller Dual Purpose Vehicle and Machine Controller Material Maintenance was not automatically awarded without attending the training as agreed.
All holders of Machine Controller Material Handler will be automatically awarded the Machine Controller Dual Purpose Vehicle and Machine Controller Material Maintenance with effect from the date of which Machine Controller Material Handler was awarded for the validity of each of the competence.

When will this happen?
The competence will be automatically awarded for all those that are affected on Sentinel by 17 October 2014.

What action is required?
All those affected will have Machine Controller Dual Purpose Vehicle and Machine Controller Material Maintenance with effect from the date which Machine Controller Material Handler was awarded.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of process issues with the implementation. It was important that we identified and were able to implement the correct solution before communicating the new arrangements to you.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
