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 through assessment times may vary they generally take an hour or two.

Our qualified assessors will run you through a series of skill set specific tasks so they can observe your workplace competency.

Once the assessment is complete your result will be able provided to your Delivery Partner, who will upload to the enAble portal for you. PLEASE NOTE: JB Hunter does not have access to upload results to enAble, you must speak with your Delivery Partner if you are experiencing a delay with accreditation.
