Becoming an Assessor

For new assessors

Assessors play a key role in supporting learners throughout the training and assessment process. To ensure that all learners receive high quality training and are assessed fairly and consistently against national standards, all EarnLearn assessors are required to complete 4098 Assessor Training and hold the 4098 unit standard (Use standards to assess candidate performance), before they can apply to become a registered assessor.
