* How can I demonstrate vocational competency?
Trainers and assessors must be able to demonstrate vocational competencies at least to the level being assessed, for example either by holding the specific qualification to be delivered or assessed, or by demonstrating equivalence of competency at the unit level. Evidence used to demonstrate equivalence of vocational competency may include consideration of relevant past training, including consideration of superseded and pre-existing industry qualifications, experience, and professional development. Equivalency is most commonly demonstrated by an individual through mapping his/her past training, experience and ongoing professional development against the unit of competency. This process may or may not identify gaps that require to be addressed.
A person who has vocational competency will be familiar with the content of the vocation and will have relevant current experience in the industry. Training Packages may include advice specific to the vocational competencies of trainers and assessors.
Recognition is at the discretion of the employing RTO and is subject to AQTF audit.
