MITO has excellent support systems in place for your ATech® training. We have also used industry experts and designers to produce top-quality learning resources for the programme.
You are expected to take a high level of responsibility for your own training in the ATech® programme, but you are not alone. We have excellent support systems in place for you!
Your MITO Industry Training Advisor (ITA)
Your ITA is involved throughout your training programme.
When your enrol for ATech®, your ITA helps you to select the topics you wish to study. The unit standards you select will become your ATech® training agenda, which is recorded in the MITO national database.
During your training, your ITA visits you every 3 months to discuss your training progress and assessment requirements. During the visit they provide your employer with an up-to-date report that outlines your training and assessment activity.
You can contact your ITA with your questions about the programme.
Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT)
MIT sends you all your ATech® training and assessment materials. Your MIT tutors mark all your theory workbooks.
If you have any questions about the content of the training or assessment materials, contact your MIT tutors.
MIT also provides you with password-protected access to their e-learning website.
Your workplace verifier
The practical workbooks for your unit standards need verification that you have proven your competence in the required tasks. This verification is done by a suitably qualified and experienced person in your workplace.
The verifier will usually be your supervisor, manager, or trainer.
MITO registered assessors
MITO organises all assessment of your practical work. We have a network of registered assessors contracted to do this.
They give you written feedback on each assessment of your practical workbooks. If necessary, they advise you where more information is required.
Your ATech® Resource Kit is in full colour and includes both printed and interactive materials. The package is designed for ease of use and storage not only for your ATech® learning but also as part of your technical reference resources for the future.
We have developed various interactive training resources for the ATech® training programme.
Check out the examples below.
The hybrid drivetrain: find out how hybrid drivetrains work in different drive modes.
Adjusting motorcyle damping: adjust the damping on a motorcycle to learn how it can affect the ride.
With each ATech® unit standard, you get a full-colour study guide. The study guide offers some training on the subject and advice on where to find more information. It also includes activities to help you prepare for assessment.
Check out the examples here.
Study guide for unit standard 21091: Demonstrate knowledge of in-vehicle information and control systems
Study guide for unit standard 21085: Use computer and digital imaging systems for vehicle specifications
Here are two examples of the assessment materials you'll come across in ATech®. We've provided answers in them to give you a sense of what is expected.
