For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

  • manage on-site event operations for at least one event type listed in the knowledge evidence with multiple operational components, overseeing event: set-up; operation; break-down;
  • develop comprehensive plans, procedures and operational documentation for staging at above event;
  • conduct event briefings prior to and following the above event;
  • liaise and consult with contractors and other relevant personnel during event finalisation, operation and break-down to ensure service agreements are met and potential risks are mitigated, and;
