Velg2Go: Trainer and Assessor Mentoring: Beyond The Essentials

28 September - 13 November 2020

The role of a trainer and assessor requires a balance between compliance and the practice of training and assessing. This 6-week, self-paced, online course is the perfect PD for experienced Trainers and Assessors who want to extend their skills and knowledge beyond the essentials.

Our Trainer and Assessor Mentoring: Beyond The Essentials program offers a flexible  approach for the continued development/maintenance of skills, knowledge and expertise of seasoned trainers and assessors.

For 1 - 2 hours each week, this 6 week course takes you on a journey that goes beyond just understanding Standards, training products and session planning. Participants will explore assessment requirements, validation and review processes, systematic evaluation and continuous improvement

Learn through custom designed, multi-media learning materials that will change the way you interact online!

Learning outcomes of the course ensure participants understand and engage successfully with the many key requirements of training and assessment including physical resources, simulated environments, continuous improvement and assessment requirements and review. The relationship between data and certification is also explored.

Upon conclusion of the course participants will form a simply aligned connection to compliance requirements and quality platforms for both training and assessment.

Unlike traditional self-paced, online learning, Velg2Go couples exclusive content with cutting-edge opportunities to interact with other course participants and the course facilitator.
