TAQA Assesor Update Course

February 7


If you achieved your assessor qualifications as either the D32 or A1 units prior to 2010, and have not been regularly assessing since then, you may find that prospective employers will require you to have evidenced CPD or undertaken an ‘update’ course to refresh and maintain your knowledge in the field of Assessment. This ‘TAQA Update Course’ delivered by Concept Academies is designed to enable you to understand the differences in the new frameworks, structure and delivery of the new suite of TAQA qualifications, and provide a refresher of some of the underpinning knowledge and understanding around the basic principles of assessment to enable you to assess with renewed confidence.

A CPD certificate will be issued to all individuals at the end of the course.
