Training and assessment

Course assessment is competency based.  Competency-based assessment is largely activity-based and practical. However, competence also implies that an individual demonstrates an understanding of the knowledge that is the basis of the practical task being carried out.

There are a combination of assessment activities and tasks requiring written responses. Assessment tasks also contain scenarios that require you to demonstrate you can transfer knowledge into workplace situations.

Completed assignments are uploaded onto the website for marking – there is a 2mg upload limit -  or you can email your assignment to us.

Assessment is conducted within approximately 48 hours of submission.

Recognition of prior learning

You may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL).  RPL is the formal recognition that your current knowledge and skills meet the requirements of a given unit of competency. It does not matter how you achieved your current level of knowledge and competence – formal training, on-the-job training, self study, work experience, life experience. What does matter is that you are able to provide evidence that your knowledge and competence meet the requirements of a particular unit of competency (competency standard). When you have provided this evidence and it has been accepted as proving your knowledge and skill in a particular area, you will be given credit for a specific competency without having to engage in further study. For further information, please review the RPL application form located in main menu.
