4. 3rd Party Verification

To attain this Nationally Recognised unit of competency you need to be observed practicing infection control skills. Such an observation isn’t possible via Online training, that’s why we need you to ask somebody that you work with (present or past) or someone who works in the food industry to complete this 3rd Party Verification form about tasks they’ve seen you doing.

Please see responses to some of our most frequently asked questions below, alternatively please Contact Us for more information & details about any of our courses.

How long does the course take to complete?

To work through the learner guides & complete the required assessment, takes most people around eight hours to complete.

Why do I need to do a 3rd Party Verification Report?

This unit of competency is ‘Nationally Recognised’ which means we have to adhere to standards, rules and regulations that govern the Vocational Education & Training (VET) industry. Such standards include how training organisations assess students – including the need to be observed practicing infection control skills. Such an observation isn’t possible via Online training and so Redmako Learning have determined the simplest way is to provide you with a 3rd Party Verification Report so that you can ask someone within your workplace to confirm they’ve observed you.

When will I receive my Statement of Attainment?

Our assessors work full-time Monday to Friday and regularly assess within hours of students completing the course, however you should allow 1-2 business days for your Statement of Attainment to be received via email.
