Being a Competent Trainer and Assessor

26 March 2021
ONLINE

This Speed Training event aims to help Trainers and Assessors AND RTO/Compliance Managers understand clearly the requirements for all Trainers and Assessors who deliver nationally recognised training and provide hints and tips on how to gain, maintain and record competency and currency.

Just like Speed Dating, Speed Training is based on the idea that focussed, short, sharp information sessions facilitated by our VET Expert can ‘bring you up to speed’ all in one day!

 Our 2021 Speed Training event provides the opportunity for you to register for 4 x 45 min webinars* and gain some real insights about the obligations of an RTO (and Trainers and Assessors) when it comes to ensuring they can demonstrate they are meeting the requirements for trainers and assessors.

*Nb: These webinars are sold as a package and cannot be purchased individually.  Click here to find out more.
