Progressive Diagnostics provides a holistic training delivery approach to address the learning styles and needs of participants.  Our training courses are conducted Face-to-Face either onsite at your workplace or at our training venue and include practical ‘hands-on’ experiences, as well as group classroom-based activities and discussion, including simulations and scenarios.



Our assessment process is in accordance with the National Assessment Principles and conforms to the standards of the Australian Qualifications Framework. Where possible the assessment process is as flexible as possible within the requirements of the units of competency.


The course includes written and practical assessments which include practical application, scenarios, role play and general discussion. Throughout the training course participants will need to complete observation/demonstration assessments which will take place either in the workplace or the training environment, depending on the task to be undertaken. A written assessment is also completed which includes answering questions related to both the practical and theory components of the course.


Participants should be able to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and performance criteria required for competency in this unit.


Encouragement and support will be provided throughout the assessment process. Any concerns or issues with undertaking assessments, should be discussed with the trainer so that additional support can be provided if required.


  • Assessments are conducted according to the guidelines and standards outlined in the Training Package, adhering to the principles of assessment and rules of evidence.

  • Competence is to be demonstrated over the full range of performance criteria to industry standards.

  • Assessments will be carried out by qualified assessors.

  • Progressive Diagnostics supports reasonable adjustment of assessments and will work with clients to maximise opportunities for successful completion of assessment requirements.


Progressive Diagnostics’ aim is to provide all participants with the support they need to complete the course. It is at the discretion of Progressive Diagnostics if any further charges would be required for further attempts.
