Assessor Requirements
This section identifies the specific requirements on the vocational competence and experience for assessors, to ensure that they meet the needs of industry and their obligations under AQTF, and clarifies how others may contribute to the assessment process where one person alone does not hold all the required competencies. 

Assessor Competencies
The AQTF specifies mandatory competency requirements for assessors. For information, Element 1.4 from the AQTF 2007 Essential Standards for Registration follows:

1.4       Training and assessment are conducted by trainers and assessors who:

  1. have the necessary training and assessment competencies as determined by the National Quality Council or its successors, and
  2. have the relevant vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered or assessed, and
  3. can demonstrate current industry skills directly relevant to the training/assessment being undertaken, and
  4. continue to develop their Vocational Education and Training (VET) knowledge and skills as well as their industry currency and trainer/assessor competence.
