The course structure for each delivery mode may vary slightly, so please speak with a Senior Training Advisor on 1300 658 337.
Within the AIM assessment model, competency is demonstrated through answering knowledge questions and completing workplace-based practical assessment tasks. These tasks may include the need to utilise workplace-based activities involving others or participation in role plays, which will need to be videoed and submitted as part of the assessment evidence. You may be expected to source and research additional materials as part of your study.
