We aim to resolve any difficulties, grievances, complaints and appeals in a prompt, impartial and just manner. All complaints about CTG’s services are handled in an equitable, fair, transparent, objective and timely manner. Confidentiality and anonymity is preserved where possible.
CTG attempts to resolve complaints at the Trainer/Assessor level in class. If not resolved, the complaint can be addressed to ChemCert Head Office by the General Manager. In circumstances where it is not possible to arrive at a resolution, an independent adjudicator will be appointed.
Students can fill in a complaint form found on the ChemCert webpage or by calling Head Office and discussing the complaint over the phone.
Records are kept of all complaints, appeals and feedback and any actions taken by CTG to resolve any issue. CTG uses this information to ensure continuous improvement in the provision of its training services.
If students or employees/subcontractors have any concerns they should call the CTG Office on 02 9439 7910 and speak to the General Manager, Brian Halse.

Course failure/NYC Procedure
If students are made “not yet competent” on the day of their course, the student has a few options:
The student can switch to another mode of course delivery (eg online to face to face), at no extra cost
The student can choose to re-sit another course (at no extra cost)
The student can take their workbook home and have up to 21 days to complete, and then send it back to the trainer
The student can be moved into a lower grade course (eg AQF3 down to AQF2 level) and complete the required course work to attain the accreditation.
