I studied the Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment in National Skills Training. I found it a wonderful experience especially as it’s a blended learning programme, the mixture of onsite and online was particularly advantageous. Especially with the element of the long distance learning it was important to have that support and that comradery. That was definitely the thing I enjoyed most. As a married father of three children, the challenge was definitely trying to balance work life and family responsibility and obligations and at the same time trying to do your best and get the volume of course work completed at the best of your ability. I am mentally prepared for enrolling to the next Verifier course with this course.
