Workplace verifiers are people who work closely with a trainee in the workplace. Their role allows them to see or hear trainees at work and confirm their skills and/or knowledge, and therefore know and verify that someone is competent. Competence means the trainee has the ability to perform the required activities to a defined standard consistently and over time.
Verification is the process of checking that something is true and correct. It includes, confirming the trainee always performs the tasks to the required standard and documenting tasks you have seen the trainee perform. The verification is used as evidence to help the assessor judge whether the trainee has met the requirements of the unit standard.
