Training and assessment

There is a combination of assessment tasks that require written responses and may include:-

  • multiple choice questions
  • short answer questions
  • and either 1 or 2 of the following:-
    • case study
    • written demonstration
    • workplace project

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.

Students are assessed according to whether or not they have achieved the performance criteria for each element specified in the units of competency they are undertaking. This method of assessment judges performance against a prescribed standard, not against other students. Students are assessed as 'competent' or 'not yet competent'.

It is the responsibility of the assessor to ensure all aspects of the assessment process are

  • valid
  • reliable
  • fair
  • flexible

Assessment is conducted within approximately 48 hours of submission. 

Completed assignment may be uploaded onto the website for marking (there is a 8MB upload limit), emailed or posted to the College. 

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.
