Assessment Requirements

The TAESS00019 Assessor Skill Set is competency based. You will have on the job activities and assessments to complete externally to the training room, which will provide evidence that you have understood the training and applied it to the workplace.

Assessments are completed in Canvas. Canvas is a web-based learning management system that is used throughout the course.
