What are the assessment components?

The assessment components of each course are different depending on which one you’re completing. 

The course material is presented in short, interactive video lessons that each have a multiple choice quiz. The case studies and reading activities are short pieces of text that you read, and also have a multiple choice quiz.

Depending on the course, you also need to complete a Video Assessment or Observer Report. An Observer Report must be completed by someone that you've worked with within the last 12 months. The Observer Report is a form that lists the skills you learned in your course. It has to be filled out by your observer, usually your supervisor or team leader.

Once you've finished the online components of the course and we've received your completed Video Assessment or Observer Report, we can start processing your assessment and send you your Statement of Attainment.
