Plan your learning Remember what you are trying to achieve is to demonstrate to your assessor that you possess a high level of competence (knowledge, awareness and skills) in all aspects of the training you are undertaking.
Whilst we have provided a great deal of the information and materials you will need to successfully complete this course, there are some activities which will require you to obtain information from other sources.
Examples of resources you may elect to use would include:
When you have completed all course activities and exercises and feel confident that you have had sufficient practice, submit your completed works to Abacus Training for assessment.
Before you do, ensure you have assembled all the required evidence of your competency, and are confident about your competence.
Evidence of Competency Systematically collate all your responses to the Learning Guide "Activities" (where applicable, they are located at the end of each Part) in a portfolio of evidence for you assessor.
This will then form an important part of the evidence of your competence at the tasks involved.
It is likely that you may need assistance from your coach or trainer with some of the activities.
This is fine, but make sure that you master the issue from this assistance and, at the end of the day, that it is you that is competent.
You may be required to do a brief oral and/or written assessment on the required underpinning knowledge.
As applicable, your assessor will advise you where knowledge or skill is not yet up to the required industry standard and where it meets the standard for recognition of competency.
You must be competent in all tasks.
Once you have successfully completed all components of your assessment, you will have achieved competence each topic.
Good luck with your learning!
