The Process to complete SAIT Qualifications

SAIT can assess candidates in the qualifications specified within its scope.

It achieves this by Candidates:
- Contacting their Branch. For WA, this can be done by emailing or calling 08 6240 7711. 
- The Branch will then ensure you receive your SAIT enrolment kit. As the candidate you will need to: 
- Review the SAIT Candidate Information Guide which will provide you with information about the assessment process and what you can expect along with some relevant SAIT Policies.
- On the Enrolment Form, provide SAIT with your Unique Student Identifier Number (USI) from the USI Registry System:  [This is a compulsory Vocational Education and Training (VET) requirement]
- Agree to the Terms of Enrolment, which are on the Enrolment Form that will be sent from your Branch.


Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts and Adults in Scouting having followed the required registration / enrolment process, will through the Assessment process present a suitable portfolio of evidence for assessment by a SAIT appointed Assessor. This may include completing the required ‘Candidate RPL Toolkit’ or providing other forms of evidence as discussed with your Assessor. 


All SAIT appointed Assessors meet the minimum standards for appointment as defined under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations, have demonstrated competency in the Qualifications and/or Units of Competency they assess and maintain the required number of continuous education hours required to be deemed to be “currently competent”. Where they do not hold a specific Unit of Competency they have supervised the completion of the assessment by a person who does hold the relevant Unit of Competency to ensure the ‘Principles of Assessment’ and the ‘Rules of Evidence’ as defined in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations have been applied throughout the process.
