The art of writing valid and relevant questions has long been a holy grail pilgrimage for content developers and trainers across many delivery methods. While the intentions of many writers is good the outcomes can sometimes be less than desirable.

At a time when training organisations are increasingly challenged to find ways of ensuring the authenticity of the certificates they issue, a significant new technology called the blockchain might very well provide a permanent solution to this conundrum.

With the requirement in the Standards for RTOs to implement a systematic approach to assessment validation, Ammonite is proud to announce that we have built into our platform systems that will deal with this requirement seamlessly. This will come as welcome news to our clients.

To keep us at the forefront of innovation, we continually embrace progressive practices throughout our lives. Our office environment/culture is certainly not immune either. To combat the issues surrounding 'sitting is the new smoking' the entire office has switched to standing desks months ago.

Combined with the occasional lunchtime workout, and the 30 minute pushup timer (which comes around all too quickly!) all of the staff here at Ammonite also do Crossfit.

The old proverb, “Self-praise is no recommendation” is very true. So while we at Ammonite are passionate about the innovations that are being continuously implemented into the Ammonite TOMS learning platform and the automation of almost everything that can be automated, it is great to see our platform come through the rigours of audits from multiple organisations without any non-compliances and as yet, not even a suggested improvement.

RPL, we know what it is and we know the benefits to the individual and the broader society by acknowledging that a person’s formal, non-formal and informal skills and experience can contribute to a person meeting competency standards.

We know too, that up until now, it has been a cumbersome, inefficient process that has the potential to scare students and burry trainers in endless paperwork.
