"A Playground Owner Must Be Able To Prove


Every person you employ to work on your playgrounds is “competent” to do so. (AS 4486.1, 9.3)

Taken to its logical conclusion this means that any person, be they employee or contractor, who a playground owner employs in any capacity, must have the training and knowledge that ensures they are “competent”

A competent person is defined as “a person possessed of the appropriate knowledge, skills and level of responsibility for the task” (AS 4486.1, 5.1)

If the worst were to happen and a child was badly injured on your playground, how could you prove that the workers who installed, inspected and maintained that playground were competent to do so?

The simple answer is:

Anyone working on your playgrounds needs to have documented 
“Statements Of Attainment” to accredited training competencies, 
relevant to the work they are performing.


Choosing A Training Provider


People person with an eye for Detail:

Highly technical knowledge, such as inspection training, takes time to understand and absorb
Most inspection trainees are not academics, so do not absorb much information by reading alone
Most inspectors have been promoted from the ranks of tradespersons and trades assistants. They are hands on people who learn through seeing and touching, having things explained to them
Such trainees are often reticent in a training room, so find it difficult to express themselves in such an environment. They need to be encouraged and cajoled to ask questions, and they need to ask questions in order to understand

It all takes time. The more contact time with an experienced trainer, the more detail the trainees can absorb

·         The formal assessment process is a valuable part of the training. It is an opportunity for the trainer to identify any gaps in the individual trainees knowledge, and the repair those gaps

·         If the assessment process is not one on one, there will be major gaps in the trainees skills and knowledge

·         Is the end result a

 Available Training


The best training a person can have is training accredited under the AQTF (Australian Quality Training Framework)

This training is based on “Nationally Recognized” competencies, which are individual packets of knowledge
Relevant packets are packaged into industry specific groups to form qualifications
Each competency achieved is then credit towards a qualification
Many workers in Parks need a Qualification from the Horticulture training package
There are Nationally Accredited competency for the 3 levels of inspection required for playgrounds (AS 4486.1, 8.3). They are:
                                                               i.      RTC 2203A – Conduct visual inspection of park facilities (a trades assistant level competency)

                                                             ii.      RTC 3201A – Conduct operational inspection of park facilities (a trade level competency)

                                                           iii.      RTC 5201A – Conduct comprehensive inspection of park facilities (a diploma level competency)

 

These competencies are applicable to all parks facilities including gazebos, barbeques, walking tracks, observation decks, pontoons etc, but the competencies are based almost entirely on the Australian Standards for playgrounds. They are common competencies between the following Training Packages

·         “Conservation & Land Management (RTD02)”

·         “Amenity Horticulture (RTF03)”

·         “Seafood Industry (SFI04)”

 

Each competency is set at a training level that matches the degree of difficulty to the knowledge and skills within the competency

 

Operational inspection is a tradesperson (Certificate III) level of responsibility

Annual (comprehensive) inspection is a management (Certificate V) level of responsibility

 

The second best training is training that has been approved by the national peak body of an industry. Eg. The mining industry has its own training packages
In the playground industry there is no recognized national peak body, so such training is unavailable
 

The third best training is training offered by an industry practitioner with a proven track record and an impeccable reputation, and who is a skilled and qualified trainer
This training has excellent practical content and the trainees would emerge well trained
The document the trainer issues cannot be used as credit to a National Qualification
The training is not recognized outside the industry
 

The worst training is offered by any organization where the trainer does not have proven practical experience in the specific competency
Some TAFE teachers will offer parks facilities inspection training, but have never inspected a playground and may have only read the Australian Standards for playgrounds through once in their life
A person who has an academic knowledge of a subject will not be able to deliver the same quality of training as an industry practitioner
Even if the trainer can offer the Nationally Accredited “Statement Of Attainment”, if the worker does not have the depth of knowledge to recognise all the hazards that might be in a playground, the training is inadequate
Substandard training will result in substandard installation, inspection or maintenance; and the result will be unidentified hazards, which in turn could result in injury or death to a child"
