Welcome to the IPSQA Course: Assess Candidates (ISO 17024:2012)
The Assess Candidates course is aimed at assessors and administrators who need to have a solid understanding of the IPSQA system, in particular how to proctor examinations and perform skills assessments in accordance with ISO 17024:2012. The course takes approximately 10 hours, including undertaking a mock assessment of a candidate and uploading related evidence for feedback.
There are four modules that you must complete as part of this course. These are:
- Part 1 An Overview
- Part 2 Assessment System
- Part 3 Assessor Practicum
- Part 6 CorePass®
Each module has a quiz which must be passed before proceeding to the next. Upon completion of all quizzes and successful feedback from your mock assessment you will be issued a certificate of completion for Assess Candidates (ISO 17024:2012). You can download the PDF of the presentations for future reference from the “Materials” tab.
