Note: This course is not the only thing needed to become an assessor! In addition to possessing the TAESS00011, assessors of vocational education and training must also be able to demonstrate vocational competencies at least to the level being assessed. This means that the assessor can only assess subjects in which they are personally competent. They must also demonstrate continuing development of VET knowledge and skills and maintain the currency of their industry knowledge, such as by attending industry conferences, subscribing to relevant newsletters, etc. Our course will show you how to satisfy these additional requirements.
