Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgments about the extent to which a person demonstrates the knowledge and skills as set out in the standards or learning outcomes of a unit of competency. To make certain that assessments are not a stressful activity, our trainers/assessors take care to ensure that they are conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. They should not be regarded as an examination. Your assessor simply needs to know which competencies you have mastered and which competencies require further practice. A range of methods and tools will be used in the assessment process including:
Activities that will be assessed during class time;
Holistic assessment tasks that will encompass a number of units.
Recognition of Prior Learning and Credit Transfers
Advance is committed to the recognition of qualifications and statements of attainment issued by other RTOs. Credit Transfers are issued upon receipt of your original qualification or a verified copy. There is no cost associated with this process.
The opportunity for Recognition of Prior Learning is available to any candidate who feels that they may have developed some/all of the competencies in the course through previous study or work experience. There may be a cost associated with this process. Please discuss this with the course trainer.
Participants assessed as competent in all units receive a Nationally Recognised qualification.
