How it has worked in other areas

TSTCA have conducted assessment of suitability in other EAHL licence classes through:

• Online assessment

• Self paced workbooks and theory assessment • Practical demonstration

• Onsite assessment

• TSCTA’s intention is not to make the task of recognising a persons suitability to transition to EAHL (Licence class 6) burdensome on the candidate

How we ‘the RTO’ intend on approaching the transition

TSTCA aim to have 4 basic delivery options: 1. A training & assessment pathway,

This would be for new participants who have limited relevant industry experience.

These candidates would require training and assessment preferably in a controlled college environment.

Delivery options continued

2. Partial Recognition,

In this pathway you may be able to provide experience in some of the skills set, but not all.

Therefore recognition is given where possible and the ‘gaps’ are met through training and assessment .

This could be through self paced workbooks with a controlled assessment on completion, or through attending a training provider.

Delivery options continued 3. Knowledge and Skills Assessment:

Here a candidate may be a EAHL (Licence class 6) and may therefore demonstrate theory and knowledge in practical and theory assessment tasks would be an experienced person and could

• demonstrate their skills and knowledge through practical and theory

• assessment tasks that would meet the training package parameters

• receiving a statement of attainment for the skills set.

4. Full Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) & Recognition of Current Competency (RCC)

This would be open to EAHL (Licence class 6) candidates who are able to provide undisputable evidence of their experience in the skills set

This means the evidence must be current, verifiable and quality There is no formal assessment or training required for

candidates who can demonstrate competency under this format

RTO Partnerships

The Service Trades College has begun to collaborate with other RTO’s across Australia.

By forming partnerships with organisations such as Fire Industry Training Victoria, Peer Veet South Australia and other providers in other states we can bring any needed training to the candidate. But TSTCA will remain your point of contact and we will endeavour to organise the process, keeping the candidate informed.

Communication

The first step will be for you to make contact with the College.

The preferable method will be through an email with all your contact

details so as we can respond to your request, (Contact details will

be on the final slide)

It would be helpful at this stage to provide an indication of which transition option you wish to exercise.

If you indicate you wish to exercise options 3 or 4 you will be sent a

self assessment tool (If time permits I will give an overview)

Outcome Notification

When the self assessment tool and evidence is returned it will be verified by an assessor

You will be notified of the outcome by phone call or email

Where there is a need for gap training or formal assessment you will be given the option to supply more evidence to close the gap or you may elect to under go formal training and assessment

This training maybe theory based (which we endeavour to have online) OR

Practical demonstration which could be onsite where possible or in an RTO Skills Centre
