One of Ammonite's clients, Inscope Training, has created the learning resources and assessments designed for online delivery of the new White Card unit of competency (CPCCWHS1001).

This unit, which will be mandatory from early December 2017, has been updated to address the issues highlighted in ASQA's White Card review. Consequently this has provided some challenges for RTO's that use online delivery.

We are proud to announce our updated Language, Literacy and Numeracy Indicator. The candidate answers a series of questions designed to approximate their learning, reading, writing, oral and numeracy abilities. After completing the assessment the system produces a graph showing the candidates ACSF performance level.

Just a reminder that RTO's have statutory requirements to submit an Annual Summary Report of the Learner and Employer Questionnaires to ASQA by the 30th June 2016.

We have designed our platform to streamline administrative processes, especially with respect to the requirements of the VET sector. Consequently the Ammonite TOMS can automatically distribute, record and then collate the results of these questionnaires for you. This leaves RTO's the more important task of reviewing and acting on these results.

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.
