General Questions

Can I change the attendance dates of my face-to-face course?

Course dates may be able to be changed prior to 1 week ahead of the course if there is space available on another course. There is a fee for changing courses. Less than 1 week ahead a cancellation fee applies please see our terms and conditions.

What courses are available in my city?

To see which courses are available go to Training--> Training Module Library and all of the courses are listed under 1.5 by city and date, or post Covid -19 we are running Virtual programs.

I have a temporary card, why do I need to redo the online course?

If you had a temporary card for the 2016 training, that has now expired and you need to do the 1.6 Operating Theatre Protocols Update. If you have done a 1.5 Introduction to Operating Theatre Protocols Update, and have not received your card, please upload your photo to your bio section of your portal and advise MTAA by emailing pd@mtaa.org.au and advising that it is complete.

Ensure your bio picture is a high-quality standard passport photo of only your face.
