Complaints

ACRRM is committed to assessing and managing complaints fairly, promptly and with sensitivity to the individuals involved. Each complaint is unique and is assessed individually on the available evidence.

We would recommend that complaints be brought to the College as soon as possible after the issue of concern happens and our staff will endeavour to deal with them promptly. Early reporting of complaints improves outcomes for all parties as resolving complaints about things that happened a long time ago is more difficult. Providing documentation related to the issue of concern may also assist in resolving the problem.

The College takes a zero tolerance approach to bullying, discrimination, sexual harassment and any other inappropriate behaviours in training and practice. If you have concerns about these in your workplace you are encouraged to seek advice and assistance. If these behaviours relate to College personnel or representatives it is appropriate to lodge a complaint with the ACRRM. If the behaviours relate to external individuals or organisations, the College may be able to provide some general guidance.
