Student’s performance is assessed in accordance with the guidelines outlined in the relevant training package or curriculum unit of competence. This may be in the form of answering questions in writing or verbally, keeping log books or through practical demonstrations of knowledge and skills developed.
Each unit of competency will normally involve two or three assessments and after each assessment the student’s submission will be marked S – satisfactory or U – unsatisfactory.
Students are allowed a second attempt to demonstrate competency at each assessment. If they are still unable to demonstrate competency at this point additional attempts are at the discretion of the Training Manager. If a student is unable to demonstrate the required performance, they must re-enrol and undertake the training and assessment again. This will incur a fee.
Once you have been assessed against the standards you will receive a result of “C” for Competent or “NYC” for Not Yet Competent. Not Yet Competent means that you have not met the requirements of the unit and will be given the opportunity to fill any competency gaps to achieve a Competent result. If you do not complete all the requirements you will receive a Statement of Attainment detailing all the units you have successfully completed. For those that complete all units within the course, with a Competent result, a Certificate of Completion will be issued, detailing the course code and title and a record of results for all units within the course.
Certificates/Statements of Attainment
Students who successfully complete a qualification will be awarded a Certificate. Students who successfully complete an accredited course or some unit/s of competency/ accredited units from any training program, will be awarded a Statement of Attainment.
