Independent Assessment

02 Sep 2015

There has been some recent debate as to what is classed as 'independent assessment' of Lantra chainsaw courses.

The official line is that the Ofqual definition of ‘independent assessment’ is assessment separated from the training, rather than the assessor being a different person to the trainer.

Operators who have certificates signed by the same trainer as the person presenting the training are classed as fully compliant with FISA requirements.
