As a candidate, you may already have the necessary skills or knowledge required to achieve some or all parts of a nationally recognised qualification.
This may be because you:
- Are already effectively working in the area; and/or
- Have completed appropriate training; and/or
- Have gained relevant experience in a similar or different industry. For example, planning skills from working in the retail industry, or other project management skills
- Have had other life experiences where relevant knowledge and skills covered
The 5 Step Process for Determining Competence
- Review of National Competency Standard (Outlines what is required including what you need to know and be able to do – these are contained in the attached self-assessment checklist)
- Determine your current level (Complete the self-assessment checklists and submit with evidence to your assessor)
- Assessor reviews evidence against competencies (Your assessor will map your evidence against competencies for the qualification)
- Develop further competence (if required) (Attend training &/or complete other tasks as determined by your assessor)
- When all criteria is satisfied, a qualification is awarded
An assessor will make comparisons between your competency and the national competency standards based on evidence of competency in relevant units, which leads to a national recognition of competency as either a statement of attainment for individual units or a qualification for award completion.
