Candidate Assessment Procedure

The assessment of our Online Safety and Health Courses is done as you complete each of the programme modules. 

Our course content and assessments have been compiled by our team of well trained, technically competent specialists.

The online training modules mean you will have flexible assessment opportunities, tailored to your specific learning needs. The assessment is based on the most appropriate methods of assessment and forms the learning evidence for our candidates.

All assessments will be conducted during the course modules and in a manner that is consistent, valid and fair. This is ensured through compliance with internal and external moderation systems.

Assessment requirements are stated in the assessment module within the H&S Rep Training course. The assessment process will be initiated and managed at a time and place that suits you best. We aim to ensure the assessment is a positive and motivating experience for all learners.

Accurate recording and reporting of assessment results will be maintained.

The requirements of the Privacy Act 1993 will be upheld. Assessors will not collect more personal information than is necessary for the administration of the assessment process.

On completion of all the unit standards for a certificate course, Safety Hub Training Limited will issue a free certificate. This process occurs as soon as all of the assessment have been completed successfully.

Expiry Dates

You have 1 year to complete the course and assessment from the day you register with us. If you have not finished the course within one year or renewed membership, your account will expire and will be deleted. Please ensure your assessment has been submitted by the stated day and time.

Given you have 1 year to complete the H&S representative course, we will not grant extensions. 

Transfer of registration to another learner

There will be no refunds given if your registration has been cancelled.
