What are the requirements for training or assessing under supervision?


The Standards for RTOs 2015 requires that a person that does not hold the required competencies (regardless of their skills and knowledge):

  • must be supervised by a qualified trainer, and
  • must not determine assessment outcomes.

Training must only be provided by those who have current industry skills and knowledge.

From 1 January 2016, people working under such supervision arrangements must hold the:

  • Enterprise Trainer Skill Set (in either mentoring or presenting), and/or
  • Enterprise Trainer and Assessor Skill Set.

For more information see Clauses 1.17 – 1.20 of the Standards Guide.
