How will you be assessed?

The theory units are assessed as open book assessments, and all practical assessments are conducted on live worksites.

MCC provides orally and in writing, the assessment condition instructions for theory and practical assessments. This occurs prior to enrolment as part of pertaining review which are also detailed on our website as well as by the trainer immediately prior to these assessments being conducted.  In addition, written assessment condition instructions are contained in the learner resources in various locations of the theory assessment booklets, practical assessment tasks and learner guides.

This test requires you to demonstrate the skills and knowledge required for this unit of competency. The test has been divided into 2 main parts:

  1. Theory Assessment.
  2. Practical Assessment.

1. Theory Assessment

Your assessor will decide with you whether you will complete the theory assessment in an oral or written open book format.

  • If you complete the assessment orally, your assessor will record your answers for you using a suitable method at an appropriate time, prior to attempting the practical assessment. You are required to sign-off on the recorded answers to indicate that they have accurately captured your response.
  • If you undertake a written assessment, you must write your own answers using the assessment tool provided.
  • In the event that the trainer determines that an oral examination may take the place of a written assessment in part or in whole then the trainer can write in their own hand writing in the students oral response in the assessment booklet space provided. The trainer in these circumstances should either sign next to the written response their name and date and or on the front page of the assessment booklet provided.
Conditions of Assessment 
  1. You will have a reading time minutes before starting the assessment.
  2. During this time, you are allowed to ask the assessor about any questions in the assessment that you do not understand.
