The accredited Assessor training in the classroom takes three days with 3 weeks for the Portfolio of Evidence preparation which is then submitted to the relevant SETA.
Assessor training with self study (distance learning) takes around three months to complete depending on how much time you spend.
We have several assessor training classes throughout the year where you can attend to get your accredited qualification as an assessor.
Assessors are hired by skills development providers to assess unit standards and qualifications that are registered on the NQF. Skills development providers can include organisations that provide training to their employees in the workplace. Assessors and moderators can either work as employees of skills development providers, or they can work as independent contractors.
In the context of education, an assessor determines whether a learner is competent in relation to the criteria or outcomes for a particular unit standard or qualification on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
The generic Assessor training course will equip learners with the required knowledge and skills to assess candidates in their own particular field of expertise. The Assessor training course will help build your understanding of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) and will help you take the first step in developing your skills and acquiring a variety of qualifications within the fields of Education Training and Development Practices and Human Resource Development.
It is the responsibility of the Assessor to determine whether a candidate is competent or not yet competent. An Assessor makes use of different tools and systems to determine if a candidate is capable of doing the job at hand. The responsibility of the Assessor is of great importance and they need to meet a high standard of criteria and have to be registered before they are allowed to assess.
