Verification of Competency
Standard 11 (S11) Generic Induction (GI) Safety Verification of Competencies can be delivered on-site and at our training facility. For more information, please contact the facility, or view our VOC page.
Log Book Requirements
If any part of the required Performance Evidence cannot be gathered, the Participant will be issued with a Practical Skills Assessment/ Workplace Experience Logbook.
This will need to be completed on site and signed off by their Supervisor. Participants have 12 months to complete this.
On completion, the Participant returns the Logbook to Site Skills training for verification. A statement of Attainment will then be issued and the Full GI Passport will be awarded by ESQ.
Full payment for courses up to $1,500 must be made before the commencement of the course unless the Payment Plan option is selected. For courses that cost over $1,500, Site Skills Training will hold an initial deposit of $1,500. The balance of fees payable will be charged at a point in the course that is proportionate to the amount of the deposit paid, e.g. a 10-day course costing $3,000, the remaining $1,500 will be charged at the end of day 5 (upon completion of 50% of the course).
