If you are concerned about meeting your training and assessment requirements and require guidance, contact your DEMT. There are several options to help address your circumstances and meet the necessary training and assessment requirements.
Interruption of Training
You may interrupt your training for a maximum period of two years accumulated over the course of your training program. More time may be granted for parental leave or exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the College. For more information, view the Exceptional Circumstances & Special Consideration Policy.
Trainees undergoing formal assessment may apply for special consideration for circumstances that adversely affect their performance. For more information, view the Exceptional Circumstances & Special Consideration Policy.
Some of your training may be completed on a part-time basis, provided that at least 50 per cent of the full-time commitment is completed and the placement meets accreditation requirements in all other respects.
Your allowable annual leave, study leave, and sick leave is calculated in relation to your training time:
- Up to 5 weeks in every 13 week In-Training Assessment period (40% ITA period)
- Up to 10 weeks in a 12 month period (19% annually).
For more information regarding your WBA and FACEM Training Program requirements, contact the ACEM Training Team.
Issues with your supervisor or colleagues
The ACEM Training Team is available to assist you with any concerns or issues you have with your workplace supervisor or colleagues.
We also encourage trainees to speak with the human resources department in their workplace to discuss these types of concerns.
After resolving the conflict, you are encouraged to engage with your Local Mentoring Program. It is compulsory for all ACEM-accredited EDs to have a mentoring program in place. Trainees are encouraged to develop a mentoring relationship with a trusted colleague.
For more information, contact your local Mentoring Program Coordinator.
