Webinar Bundle - Digital Validation Boot Camps


Digital Validation Boot Camps are here!

In one big week in May, the Validations team will take you through 5x live sessions ensuring you have your validation needs covered.

Join guest presenter Michelle Charlton for these new live webinars. 


All participants will also receive their own print version of Validations' new Big Book of kNOw.

The Big Book of kNOw is a valuable resource to support effective validation practices. It covers aspects of 'NO' when it comes to mapping and validation of mapping practices, and includes points to 'KNOW' for best-practice results. It also touches on essential components for creating assessments that work.

The Big Book of kNOw contains over 45 pages of practical checklists, guides and definitions, and as a mini-learning text, is also a handy refresher on parts of the TAE. If you're serious about quality VET outcomes for your RTO, the Big Book of kNOw is the way to go!


And if that's not enough, we're also providing the opportunity for your organisation to get an initial review & feedback on your drafted documents. If you submit your draft documents within 30 calendar days after the live session runs*, the Validations team will do a fast desktop review of your documents & provide any key tips noticed. There will also be the option to engage Validations in a further complete compliance check of your finalised documents if desirable.
