1. Mutual Recognition
GTI is committed to recognising the AQF qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by other RTO’s. In doing so, we will implement and maintain written procedures to recognise AQF qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other RTO; and provide information regarding its mutual recognition obligations in all relevant documentation to clients, contractors and staff

2. Academic Referencing
Plagiarism means taking someone else's ideas or writing and presenting them as if they belonged to you without correct referencing. If a student has been identified as partaking in plagiarism, they will automatically receive a fail for that assessment, and will be asked to resubmit the assessment again.
GTI adopts the Harvard Referencing System as its preferred method. GTI has made available a copy of the student referencing guide adopted by Macquarie University, and expects that all students adhere to the principles within.
GTI also has measures in place to prevent and detect cheating amongst its students and to deal appropriately with any instances suspected or detected.

3. Risk Management & Occupational Health and Safety
The Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004 (the OHS Act) is designed to provide a broad framework for improving standards of workplace health and safety to reduce work related injury or illness. The Act aims to:
- secure health safety and welfare of employees and other people at work;
- protect the public from the health and safety risks of business activities;
- eliminate workplace risks at the source; and
- involve employers, employees and the organisations that represent them in the formulation and implementation of health, safety and welfare standards.
The OHS Act requires employers to maintain so far as is practicable for employees a working environment that is safe and without risks to health and to provide adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace.

Training can be delivered in lectures, on a one to one basis and, primarily using self-paced online resources, materials and technology
10. Video File Submissions
Once a student has completed all the online training and validation questions at the end of each element of the unit, they will come to the ‘Exam’ section of the course. It is at this point that they will upload both written assignment (in ‘word’ format) and Video files. We have outlined our minimum quality and size conditions for submission.
