Assessments will be based on the 10 units of competency set out in the above.
You will be assessed through a combination of knowledge and practical assessments that you can complete in your workplace.
Knowledge questions are designed to allow you to demonstrate your underpinning knowledge, whilst the practical assessments are designed to demonstrate competency in conducting tasks relating to the individual units set out in this qualification.
A portfolio of documentary evidence of similar tasks to those set out in the practical assessments might be useful in applying for recognition of prior learning (RPL). Contact the Academy to request a consultation with one of our assessors to see if you might be a suitable candidate for the RPL process.
