Asset Training recognises the value and importance of training and assessment that meets standards that result in gaining nationally recognised qualifications or statement of attainments. We have a strong commitment to ensuring we offer training and assessment that meets or exceeds industry standards, complies with regulations and produces desired results for individuals and for clients.
As a part of our commitment to quality and compliance, Asset Training implements assessment validation processes for all programs delivered within its’ scope of registration. Assessment validation is an integral part of Asset Trainings compliance and continuous improvement processes. The purpose is to evaluate and ensure training and assessment is conducted in accordance within the Principles of Assessment and that decisions made about competency are based on the Rules of Evidence consistently producing valid assessment judgements.
Our validation system ensures that all training and assessment products complies with the requirements of the relevant training package and the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015
Each training product (AQF qualification, skill set, unit of competency, accredited course and module) on our Scope of Registration are validated by qualified Trainer and Assessors, Key stakeholders and independent subject matter experts (SME) to ensure our practices align to current methods, industry requirements and performance expectations for the workplace.
