This platform provides students with the content, resources and assessment documentation necessary to complete the course. Participants will attend classrooms with industry leading facilitators. Participants can start the course anytime and will be required to book in and attend sessions via Zoom or face to face. Printed workbooks, assessment documentation and all resources are provided and posted to students.

You can start the course any time. You will be provided with a hard copy pack including your Learner’s Guide, assessment materials and all relevant supporting material.   In addition access will be provided to the Pivot Online Learning System (POLS). This platform holds all the learning material, assessment requirements, resources, needed to complete the qualification.

if you are currently training and assessing and you already hold the underpinning knowledge and skills required to demonstrate competency, then RPL may be an option. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assesses your non-formal and formal learning to determine how your current skills and knowledge match the competency outcomes for partial or full qualification. RPL must be based on evidence which can be matched against relevant units. This evidence will depend on the unit and some evidence will go across a number of units. Your assessor must be satisfied that you have addressed all the requirements of the relevant unit before they can grant you RPL in that unit. RPL assessment at The Pivot Institute allows you to evidence your skills and knowledge through the completion of an RPL kit.
