Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the underpinning knowledge will be assessed on the completion of each course, but the competency itself will not be signed off until related competency is completed and the student is deemed competent.
The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Progressive Written assessments
• Written Assignments
• Scheduled Practical Exercises
• Work Simulation Projects


Assessment Tasks

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the criteria set in the National Training Package.

The students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together skills and knowledge as follows:

* Theoretical Written assessment.

* Work Simulation Projects

* A Pass in schedule practical exercises
