What does the validation of resources mean?

In 2020 ASQA directed RTO’s to make changes in the Drilling Operations, Drilling Oil and Gas and Well Servicing qualification training packages. These changes are typically recommendations from industry requiring new learning materials to be produced to keep up with new technologies, safety initiatives along with any new and relevant policies and procedures. When this happens Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) need to invest capital and time to create materials that satisfy the new and improved Performance Criteria guidelines set out by Training.Gov. During the period 2020-21 the AWCC RTO has rewritten and validated over 100 units of competency across 11 qualifications earmarked for updating and/or rewriting in the Drilling and Well Servicing training packages.

In general, most RTO’s engage persons trained to be resources writers or persons who are not from the Drilling industry to write resources for the Drilling and Well Servicing type courses. Hence the need for “industry engagement to validate the quality” of the product. Validation is an important process that needs to take place to make sure the course materials presented to students are relevant and meet the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) for learning pathways.

Validation is a process that RTO’s undertake with industry leaders to ensure the learning materials produced are industry relevant and correct and fit for student use. AWCC’s theory materials have been written by our network of full time IWCF Well Control Instructors and currently employed Operations Managers and OCR’s allowing our company to incorporate an ongoing validation process. This means that the AWCC suite of qualifications have been fully validated in record time. The Australian Well Control Centres Drilling and Well Servicing knowledge and industry engagement is second to none.

What does this mean for “you” the student participant?

Any participant enrolling in AWCC qualification program, including the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process are receiving the most “Authentic – Valid – Reliable – Current – Sufficient” theory materials and practical assessments activities on the market today. AWCC recognise the personal commitment that our students make when undertaking adult learning to better themselves or have their work experience formalised by a qualification.

This is why our company have created a unique landscape for learning that is streamlined and created by a team of highly experienced industry professionals that know exactly what you need to succeed and take the next step in your career.
