WAMITAB Validate Validate is a fl exible work-based assessment programme enabling employers and individuals to select the modules that are most relevant to their job role. With a strong emphasis on health and safety, there are currently 40 modules that can be taken individually – or as part of a programme – and present an ideal way to check work practices comply with company policy and legislative requirements. Validate is available under licence through WAMITAB and is assessed using a combination of on-the-job observation, and question and answer sessions, with no requirement for a “portfolio of evidence”. The assessment process can be undertaken either by the employer or a registered training provider, with the view they meet the licence requirements, in terms of relevant industry and assessment experience. The tool can be paper-based, computer or accessed via a mobile app and off ers a cost-eff ective solution for monitoring the competence of staff .
