  • Successful completion of a Nationally Recognised Training qualification at Certificate III level or higher; or

Assessment requirements

For a few verbal assessments of this course, the student will be required to have another person present. Organising that extra participant is the responsibility of the student. Participants can be a friend or family member, for example.
