New Technical Assessor training tool

The contribution of Technical Assessors is essential to NATA in the delivery of peer-assessment based accreditation services that meet the national interest and public wellbeing.

NATA provides face-to-face training for new Technical Assessors on its accreditation process and the role of the Technical Assessor at major centres around Australia via the Technical Assessor Development Program (TADP). 

For those Technical Assessors who are in remote locations in Australia, are overseas or have trouble getting to a NATA office for a day, we have developed a webinar training solution. The webinar approach allows more interaction between the NATA trainers and the trainees than a normal e-learning approach and does so in a time effective manner.

The content of this webinar is based on the Assessor Information Guide (AIG) which is provided to all Technical Assessors in the Assessor Resource Kit when they join the body of NATA Assessors

A Technical Assessor will need to put aside a half a day  to attend the two parts of the training but they do not need to leave their facility and will have time to catch up on other matters in between the two sessions. To be considered to be a trained Technical Assessor both sections of the training will need to be completed.

The first of the webinar TADPs was conducted on 9 March 2016 and the second session was held on 19 April.  Courses will be scheduled throughout the year.  NATA will advise when these programs are up-coming and those Assessors in remote locations who are untrained will receive an invitation to register from the NATA Training Services Group.

It is also hoped that this webinar training will allow current Technical Assessors, who attended a training course many years ago, to register for a refresher course.
