You will be required to undertake some level of structured training if you have less than 10 years of relevant work experience.

Structured training enables you to demonstrate how you have gained the skills and abilities needed to perform specific tasks or functions and therefore the required experience to achieve the competencies for your pathway.

The length of structured training required depends on your previous experience:-

  • up to 5 years of experience requires 24 months of structured training
  • 5 to 10 years of experience requires 12 months of structured training
  • over 10 years of experience requires no structured training

Structured training is either undertaken by you or provided by an employer.

You will not be able to apply for the final assessment interview until your counsellor (and supervisor) certifies that, in their opinion, you have reached the level of competence required and have fulfilled the minimum training period.
