What if I believe I am already competent before training? If you believe you already have the knowledge and skills to be able to demonstrate competence in this unit, speak with your trainer, as you may be able to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Assessor Responsibilities Assessors need to be aware of their responsibilities and carry them out appropriately. To do this they need to: Ensure that participants are assessed fairly based on the outcome of the language, literacy and numeracy review completed at enrolment. Ensure that all documentation is signed by the student, trainer, workplace supervisor and assessor when units and certificates are complete, to ensure that there is no follow-up required from an administration perspective. Ensure that their own qualifications are current. When required, request the manager or supervisor to determine that the student is ‘satisfactorily’ demonstrating the requirements for each unit. ‘Satisfactorily’ means consistently meeting the standard expected from an experienced operator. When required, ensure supervisors and students sign off on third party assessment forms or third party report. Follow the recommendations from moderation and validation meetings. How should I format my assessments? Your assessments should be typed in a 11 or 12 size font for ease of reading. You must include a footer on each page with the student name, unit code and date. Your assessment needs to be submitted as a hardcopy or electronic copy as requested by your trainer.
