Assessment can be just part of the competence jigsaw, with verification another important piece.

Internal verifiers have a significant role in ensuring assessments are being carried out in accordance with Competence Management System requirements. As with our assessment training packages, our courses for verifiers have both OPITO and SQA accreditation to guarantee the quality of the content and delivery.
