The aim and topics for each module explain the content of the module some questions to help you to check your knowledge and review it with your Training Adviser state the learning methods for each module provide validation criteria for each module and suggest potential evidence for validation.

Check Your Knowledge

These questions are designed to help you establish what you already know and the learning you still have to complete for this module. You should work with your Training Adviser to identify any learning you have left to complete and how you can complete this. These questions will explore your knowledge on the topics covered; you will need to demonstrate practical experience to meet the requirements of the validation criteria below.

Validation Criteria
The validation criteria for each module are shown in the following pages. For some modules, the specified criteria must be completed by all roles; in some other cases however, there are validation criteria that apply to all roles and other that are only relevant to certain roles. If you're not sure about what criteria apply to your role, please discuss this with your Training Adviser. In some instances, it will also depend on the learner’s agreed role description whether certain criteria apply.
