Assessment-Only Pathway (AOP)

OVERVIEW
The Assessment-Only Pathway (AOP) allows experienced landscape workforce with the relevant skill set to have their competencies formally recognised under the WSQ framework. AOP participants may undergo the assessment of a WSQ Competency Unit without having to attend training, thereby reducing the time taken off from work. Participants will be issued a Statement of Attainment if they are assessed to be “Competent”. 

AOP is available for the following WSQ Competency Units (modules):
