Your Way: Speed Training (Webinar Bundle): Competence & Currency Essentials

This 4 x 45-minute webinar bundle is from our suite of Your Way offerings. It is ready to be presented to your staff, at a time that suits you! Need more information? Simply fill out our enquiry form below for a quote. 

This Speed Training event aims to help Trainers and Assessors AND RTO/Compliance Managers understand clearly the requirements for all Trainers and Assessors who deliver nationally recognised training and provide hints and tips on how to gain, maintain and record competency and currency.

Just like Speed Dating, Speed Training is based on the idea that focussed, short, sharp information sessions facilitated by our VET Expert can ‘bring you up to speed’.

The Speed Training event provides the opportunity for 4 x 45 min webinars* and gain some real insights about the obligations of an RTO (and Trainers and Assessors) when it comes to ensuring they can demonstrate they are meeting the requirements for trainers and assessors.

What will be covered in the Speed Training  sessions:

Webinar 1: Being a Competent Trainer and Assessor

  • The mandatory training credential and what this qualifies the trainer and assessor to do
  • The types of evidence a trainer and assessor can use to demonstrate vocational/industry competence
  • Claiming vocational/industry competence through the effective recording of demonstrated evidence

Webinar 2: Maintaining Vocational/Industry Currency

  • The units of competency being delivered and assessed
  • Awareness of the industry sector and its evolving practices
  • Being ‘informed’ as a training and assessment resource

Webinar 3: Maintaining Trainer and Assessor Currency

  • The mandatory TAE requirements
  • VET Sector awareness, and
  • RTO operations.

Webinar 4: Demonstrating, recording and approving evidence of competence and currency

  • Pulling together demonstrated evidence
  • Understanding the relevance of the evidence to the RTO
  • Effectively documenting the evidence for purposes of RTO approval
  • Professional development planning
