MITT uses a range of assessment methods which may include:
- Written assessment (open book)
- Case study
Assessment will be either a Recognition of Prior Learning pathway or a Training and Assessment pathway.
For a Training and Assessment pathway, participants are advised of the assessment requirements at the start of each training session.
Students not achieving competency in any of the assessments will be required to undertake another assessment under the terms and conditions of MITT’s reassessment policy.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) / Credit Transfer
You can apply for recognition of prior learning, academic credit and work experience towards this qualification. During the course of your life you will develop a wide range of skills and knowledge. Through work, volunteer roles, family commitments and various tasks undertaken in everyday life, you are building up a bank of knowledge. The evidence of these skills and knowledge accumulated can be used to help you gain a qualification. Example: Mark has been working as a motor mechanic in a workshop for 5 years, he never did get around completing his qualification, his employer asks him to complete his Certificate III in Automotive, but he wasnʼt keen to study. In this case scenario, MITT can help Mark through the process and he could complete his qualification in less than a year.
