Vocational Competence, Currency & Equivalence


Can I train/assess this? What happens when you don’t ‘hold’ the unit.

“I don’t feel comfortable marking this – I don’t hold the unit so don’t think I should”
“I’ve been delivering this unit for ages – why do I have to suddenly fill out a bunch of paperwork to say I can keep doing my job?”
“I have the Diploma of Business. My RTO delivers the Diploma of Business… Perfect match!” Or is it?
“My qualification is the latest version. Units are developed according to industry requirements. Why should I need industry currency?”
“I used to own my own restaurant and now I’m teaching others. Do I really have to have a qualification?”

Do any of the above sound like you or someone you know? If so, and you’re looking for answers, this is the webinar for you!

The Standards for RTOs 2015 clearly outline what is required to train and assess others. When it comes to determining whether the requirements are met, not every trainer/assessor is going to fall neatly in the box.

Register for this webinar to hear about:

  • Clause 1.13: what it means and how to demonstrate compliance
  • The difference between currency, competency and equivalency and the importance of each
  • Ways to map vocational competence and equivalence
  • The types of evidence that may be suitable in a claim for vocational competence
  • Exceptions to the ‘rule’
  • The answers to the above questions
