Course Structure

On completion of the formal training a ‘Statement of Completion’ will be issued as evidence that the formal training has been completed. Before a Statement of Attainment can be issued by WorkSafe Connect, the learner must undertake specific on-the-job training in a work environment or replicated industrial work environment and undertake formal theory and practical assessment. The period of on- the-job training is approximately 40-60 hours. However, it is the decision of the supervising person who determines when the trainee is deemed suitable for formal assessment

Course Assessment

A formal assessment will be conducted which involves successfully completing the written knowledge test or assignment. This written assessment can be completed at the end of the theory training. The trainee must highlight this preference prior to the formal training as the assessment cost will be required to be paid prior to this assessment taking place. The practical assessment can only be completed once the on-the-job training has been completed and must be undertaken within 6 months of the formal theory assessment.
