Participants will still need to do the full assessment, but may be precluded from areas of the training where you are already operating within the requirements of the guidelines.

Demonstration of Competence:
From experience, we find that people have different levels of ability and experience when it comes to handling machinery. If a person, due to a lack of experience, requires more time to develop their skills, more time for practical application may be needed to increase their skills up to a competent level.
Depending on location of the training, and availability of take away food outlets, it is advisable for trainees to bring own food and plenty of drinking water to training session.
