This qualification is delivered through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This process involves the candidate providing their assessor with information about their work history, experience, previous formal/informal learning and current work functions/skills to determine their entitlement to the qualification.
Upon enrolment, the candidate will be provided with a RPL application to complete in their own time, which will enable them to provide evidence of their experience. Once the RPL application has been completed and submitted to CSTC, an interview with our assessor will be arranged. This interview will allow the candidate to explain the evidence provided, and allow the assessor to question the candidate on their knowledge skill and experience. The assessor may also conduct site visits to confirm the candidates level of knowledge and skill.
If gaps in knowledge, skill or experience are identified, further training can be provided for the candidate to obtain the qualification. The duration of this training is dependent on the individual candidates prior and current work experience and as such will vary in duration.
