How will I be assessed?

Demonstrate the criteria and dimensions

Your evidence must address all criteria and all the dimensions (autonomy, influence and complexity) as explained in our candidate guides. To be successful, your submission will need to clearly demonstrate how your examples and evidence align with all criteria and dimensions.

Information regarding the criteria and dimensions can be found on the relevant credential page. For example, if you are looking for submission criteria regarding the communication credential, PDF guides outlining the information for each credential level can be found on the communication credential page.

How you address the criteria will depend on the type of work you do. To be successful, your submission will need to clearly demonstrate how your examples and evidence align to the criteria and dimensions.


Our assessors are experienced academics and industry practitioners with the relevant experience to assess your submission.

Assessment is in English

The assessment for credentials is in English, therefore all evidence documents and reflective testimony must be in English. The video testimony will also be conducted in English.

If the original document is not in English, you will need to provide an officially certified translation, along with the original document for authenticity.

Identity-assured evidence

You will be required to verify your identity as part of the credentialling assessment process, by providing details from an approved list of identity documents.

In addition to your written evidence, your video testimony assures us of your identity, and that your responses are based on your own work. Your voice recording from the video testimony will be used to verify your identity.
