New Era Institute has developed assessment tools that support the assessment of applicable units of competency in accordance with the requirements of industry Training Packages. New Era Institute staff members ensure that tools developed for assessment fit with the requirements of the target industry or wider industry needs.

The following are examples of assessment tools which have been incorporated into an assessment strategy to meet the Training Package and industry requirements, the rules of evidence and the principles of assessment:

    • Direct observation checklist of workplace tasks being performed;
    • Surveys;
    • Questioning of required knowledge (written);
    • Reports and planning documents;
    • Team Meetings, Interviews, Workplace Inspections for WH&S, standard operating procedures and
    • Workplace templates

This list of assessment tools identifies only a small number of assessment tools that are used in this course.



The time frame allows up to 12 months to complete the course and students are expected to study approximately 11 to 12 hours on average weekly structured as guided study and assessment preparation and completion. This is a guide and is dependent on your current level of experience, knowledge, and skill.


All students are expected to present to the class on time and to wear neat, casual attire suitable for participation in learning activities. You are not expected to wear business attire but for some presentations, students may wish to show their professionalism and ‘dress up’ for effect.

Students will require basic stationery and a notebook according to their own study preferences during classroom learning sessions and their own self-paced study. 

Access to a computer which has an internet connection is recommended to assist students to undertake the 5 hours of online study and research in response to some assessment tasks.

Students are encouraged to bring portable electronic devices to classroom sessions such as small laptops or tablets if they wish. Students are advised that no provision will be made to charge these devices in the classroom and charging or power extension leads are not to be used in the classroom. 


Applicants can apply for recognition of their existing skills and knowledge that are relevant to the units of competency within the course. These skills and knowledge may have been obtained through workplace training or experience and may reduce the number of units required to be completed during the course.
