Astra Group’s Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety uses a range of case studies based on real events, as well as individual and group activities to support learning that can be applied to real life.
ASTRA uses a wide variety of assessment methods and techniques to evaluate students during the BSB41419 course. While training in the Certificate IV Work Health and Safety, class students will undergo observations, write assignments, take part in question-and-answer sessions, create portfolios, submit work samples, and receive third-party feedback.
Assessment is structured around the completion of in-class case studies, individual and collaborative activities, written submissions, and a post course project.
A self-paced post-course assessment is required to complete the qualification requirements.
