nbn™Direct Assessments are for workers with existing experience in the specific technical skill(s). We offer assessments for practical skills in HFC, fibre or copper. If you haven’t been directed to get a Direct Assessment you can achieve accreditation by attending training courses in Copper, Optical Fibre or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial specialisations.
How Direct Assessments work
Prior to taking your practical Direct Assessment students should have passed the online knowledge test provided by enAble™. If you have not undergone this test, please do not book an assessment, instead discuss with your delivery partner who may arrange a different pathway.
Direct Assessments are conducted on a regular basis at JB Hunter venues, and though assessment times may vary they generally take an hour or two.
Our qualified assessors will run you though a series of skill set specific tasks so they can observe your workplace competency.
Once the assessment is complete your result will be uploaded to the enAble™ system within five working days.
HFC – Hybrid Fibre Coaxial – Direct Assessment Times
There is no certification associated with these assessments. Your enAble™ profile will be updated with your assessment result within seven (7) days of completing the assessment.
