General and Specialist Inductions

To adhere to the WH&S policy for the School of Creative Industries and access to resources and specialist facilities, inductions are required as part of coursework and research activities. This includes academic staff, technical staff, visiting researchers, undergraduate and postgraduate students. If you have have not completed the relevant inductions, access to resources and facilities will not be approved until you have successfully completed the required inductions.

Types of inductions may include:

  • Online presentations or video instruction
  • Onsite demonstration of specialist facilities
  • Online quiz

Successful completion of the required induction (100% PASS) is required to gain access. Inductions are valid to align with semester based coursework and may be required to be renewed to keep access privileges.

Inductions are classified according to the levels below:

General Induction

Specialist Inductions

Level 1: Specialist Induction

Additional inductions may be required for your coursework that are classified as Level 1/Class Green or Level 2/Class Orange areas. Such inductions allow access to specialist spaces and additional resources. These can be found via your enrolled course and program Blackboard sites or upon request (supPORTAL ticket).

Requesting a Specialist Induction outside of course requirements:

Access to specialist equipment or spaces outside of normal class requirements may be required for research, particular assignments or work integrated learning outcomes.

For equity purposes, the primary users of bookings are classes, however, if there is available time outside class usage needs, specialist equipment and spaces may be booked upon completion of the associated specialist induction.

How to Request a Specialist Induction:

  • Please check that you do not already have access to the induction through your course sites in Blackboard.
  • If you do not have a specialist induction through your course blackboard sites, please submit a Technical Ticket Request below.
  • Please note – you may be required to provide additional information about the scope of your project or evidence of approval from your supervisor (e.g. tutor, lecturer, course coordinator or manager) before receiving access to the inductions.

Specialist Inductions for Specialised Spaces

You must complete the General Induction in addition to the required specialised inductions to gain access and use equipment in the following areas. Please note that different equipment within each space required a different level of access and thus induction.
