High standards of achievement are set in this intensive course, to reflect the level of responsibility assumed by a qualified driving assessor. Full time attendance is required and assignments must be submitted during the course (sessions are recorded with links provided). All assessment tasks are graded at a level appropriate for a post-graduate subject and a satisfactory standard must be achieved before a certificate of course completion and a driving assessor registration number is issued.
Applicants must be qualified occupational therapists, provide a certified copy of their occupational therapy degree or their AHPRA number during the course, have a minimum of two years postgraduate experience and hold a current drivers’ license.
This course is presented over 5 weeks online from 9am to 4:30pm, Tuesday and Friday of each week.
