On completion of each section, you and the trainer and assessor are required to sign and date that section before going on to another section. Once all sections of the workbook are complete, we go back to the front of the book to do the final sign off. It is at this point when all assessment activities have been completed that a final result of competent or not yet competent is achieved. If re-assessment is required, this is indicated on the assessment cover sheet. There are two opportunities for re-assessment, however, re-assessment occurs on the same day. Finally, you will be asked to complete a survey and give Staysafe a review on facebook or google.
