Delivery and Assessment
Mode of Delivery
This program is currently delivered via apprenticeship only.
ACTA works closely with employers to create a custom Training Plan, for each apprentice or trainee. We recognise that the training plan must follow & reflect the type of projects the employer is working on.
ACTA’s Training Calendar works around three terms per year, aiming to complete 3 to 4 units per term. The Trainer will visit the workplace at least every term, to assess and validate competency, as well as sign off with the employer and student on any evidence necessary to complete each unit.
Instead of losing the apprentices off site each week, ACTA’s blended onsite / online training program is flexible and can accommodate and work around busy periods and project deadlines, utilising gaps or wet weather days, to complete study elements and assessment tasks.
Assessments will be conducted through a combination of questioning, reports, presentations, role-plays and direct observations.
Recognition Prior Learning (RPL)
All students are offered the opportunity to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) at enrolment. Students may be granted credit or partial credit in recognition of skills and knowledge gained through work experience, life experience and/or prior training.
Note: ACTA College does NOT offer any full qualification via RPL (ASSESSMENT ONLY) Pathway.
Upon successful completion of CPC30620 – Certificate III in Painting and Decorating, the candidate may pursue CPC40120 – Certificate IV in Building and Construction.
At employer’s worksite.
