What happens with the on-site assessment?

Once you have submitted your answers and the evidence you have gathered, one of our industry professional assessors will review them and will advise you if any additional evidence is required. 

When your evidence is complete, your assessor will organise a time to visit you on-site.

On-site, our assessor will:

  • Observe you working on current projects demonstrating your skills
  • Take notes of what they observe you demonstrating and assess your skill level
  • Work together with you to identify any gaps in your knowledge and skills and put a plan in place to fill those skills gaps

After all the evidence is gathered, the answers are marked, and you are observed and assessed on-site, your RPL process will be complete.
