Assessment providers can apply for approval to deliver the following Workplace Competence Standards:
HDA Workplace Competence Assessment Standard
HLO Workplace Competence Assessment Standard
HERTL Workplace Competence Assessment Standard
HERTM Workplace Competence Assessment Standard
The Workplace Competence Standards approval process consists of three stages:
Stage 1: Attend a one day workshop – The one day workshop covers the approval process and the detailed specifics of the approval criteria and standards. There is no charge to participate in a workshop.
Stage 2: Application and desktop submission – This process ensures that the assessment provider has the required resources to deliver training and/or assessment and a management system in place that complies with the OPITO approval criteria.
Stage 3: An onsite audit - An OPITO auditor will visit the assessment provider’s premises to ensure the relevant approval criteria and Workplace Standard requirements are met. This may require a workplace audit.
Following successful participation in the approvals process, training providers are awarded individual approval for the specified Industry Standards and can register delegates in Vantage Central Register.
