Prerequisite, co-requisite or interdependent assessment of units
Skills must be demonstrated in the workplace.
In addition, simulations and scenarios must be used where the full range of contexts and situations cannot be provided in the workplace or may occur only rarely. These are situations relating to emergency or unplanned procedures where assessment in these circumstances would be unsafe or is unpractical.
Simulated assessment environments must simulate the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.
Assessment must ensure use of:
current workplace policies and procedures for WHS.
Assessors must satisfy the NVR/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.
