The Qualified Assessor Training is pass or fail intensive 3-day course focused on practical application of assessor competences and aimed at further developing the understanding of an organisation’s context and strategic priorities.

The Qualified Assessor Training will further develop your assessor competences and confirm your experience through team work and discussion forums. This intensive course will be supported by a case study enabling you to perform a close to real-life assessment of an organisation applying for a Recognised for Excellence program.
