This is a critical aspect of our quality assurance activities. The assessor training programme provides technical and managerial skills to suitably qualified persons to prepare them to be assessors. In preparation to be certified as an assessor, individuals must attend a five day workshop, complete a practicum and submit a portfolio. Successful completion of this entire process will result in CVQ Level 4 certification in Assessment. Certified assessors conduct assessments based on the occupational standard for which they are qualified.
