Assessor Skill Set

The Assessor Skill Set is the minimum requirement for assessors working for a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

This course is essential if you’re required to work for a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) or employer and need to assess others against nationally recognised qualifications or units of competency.

The course will give you the tools to:

  • plan and validate assessment processes and activities
  • design and develop assessment tools that guide the collection of quality evidence, including Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) evidence
  • make credible assessment decisions based on evidence provided by the candidates being assessed.
