More Information
Assurance Audits:

AVELING conducts assurance audits of participants completing nationally recognised eLearning courses to verify identification and ensure the participant did the course themselves.

Participants doing nationally recognised eLearning courses must be subjected to AVELING’s assurance audit process within 12 months of course enrolment and successfully pass the assurance audit to complete the course and receive certification. If this does not occur, they may have to redo the course.

Important note:

A Third Party Report will need to be submitted for each course, once the online component is completed. They will be used, along with the in-course assessments, to deem competence for the Units of Competency.

To meet the Third Party Report requirements, the participant will need access to a commercial or training food preparation area, bar or kitchen, where a supervisor, employer or someone with appropriate food preparation experience will have to observe and comment on the participant’s use of hygienic practices and relevant skills and knowledge while performing a range of food handling tasks.

The course is not complete until the Third Party Reports have been submitted and show the participant is competent for the Units. The Third Party Reports must be submitted within 12 months of course enrolment.
