Assessment Benchmarks

Each assessment task includes assessment benchmarks in the Assessor Guide. This is critical for your long-term compliance, as post-initial, re-registration and compliance audits focus on your application of the assessment tool. This means they look at the quality of the evidence of competence you€™ve gathered and validity of your assessment judgements.

You must have specific, detailed assessment benchmarks so your assessors can produce consistent, valid assessment judgements and help ensure your RTO’s compliance at audit.

Assessment Mapping

Quickly and easily find and demonstrate where all Performance Criteria, Knowledge Evidence, Performance Evidence and other assessment requirements are found in your new PMA training materials! The mapping matrices you will receive with your PMA30116 RTO resources are an essential compliance tool and invaluable when you are audited.

Includes Learner Guides!

Many RTOs fall into the trap of investing in slightly cheaper €œassessment tool only€ packages and then discover they are on the hook for potentially hundreds of dollars per student to get learning content to deliver the course!

Our PMA packages include Learner Guide content on the unlimited student license. Quality Learner Guides are a critical training resource that provides essential course information, which means potentially:

  • Less trainer support required.
  • Fewer re-submission attempts if students find the correct information first time (saving you money on assessment!).
  • Includes formative assessments to help your students learn and cement their knowledge.

Clustered Learning Resources

This PMA30116 RTO training materials package is written in a clustered format to minimise duplication of assessment and provide a more holistic learning experience for your students. Two to four units of competency with similar knowledge and competency outcomes have been combined into each subject workbook, with topics such as HSE, Operations, Maintenance, Processes and Records.

Our experience of clustering shows it can substantially reduce your time to deliver and assess the qualification while still meeting all competency requirements, saving you time and money on training and assessment. It can also provide a more enjoyable and faster learning experience for students, as they are not repeating similar or identical assessment tasks in multiple units of competency.

Editable Assessment Workbooks

Your PMA training resources will be delivered with unlocked, editable learner guides and assessment workbooks in Word format so you can modify and contextualise assessments for compliance and to suit your students’ needs.

Unlimited Student License

Deliver and assess PMA training to as many students as you want using the PMA30116 Certificate III in Process Plant Operations RTO training resources! This package is delivered in digital format with an unlimited student license and includes Learner Guides. This means there is just the one upfront license fee and no more fees to pay to use the materials for the life of the qualification – no matter how many students you train.
