    How is the course qualification assessed?

    Assessment is the process of measuring a candidate’s skill, knowledge and understanding against the standards set in a qualification.

    As part of the assessment, the learner is required to prepare a short training presentation and deliver the same via a short video that needs to be uploaded on the LMS platform. The assessor on the course would carefully review the video and provide a collective feedback on whether it meets the criteria for a pass.

    Attempts for assessments:

    One free attempt is permitted if not achieved during the first time. If the learner fails a second time, the learner would be directed to the start of the units again.

    If the candidate fails on the 3rd attempt, the course gets locked and they have to register for the course resit where a separate resit fee applies. A maximum of 2 resits within a period of 2 years from date of first registration would be permitted.

    Subsequent to the resit, if the candidate is still unsuccessful, he/she needs to apply as a fresh registration altogether to commence the course from the very beginning.
