Modification History

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to prepare for and process on-site attendee registrations at events. It requires the ability to collect and collate all registration materials in advance of the event, set up the registration area, and check attendee registration details before admission.

This unit is relevant to events that are diverse in nature and are coordinated in many industry contexts, including the tourism, hospitality, sport, cultural and community sectors.

It applies to event operations personnel who operate with some level of independence and under limited supervision. They may work in event management companies, in event venues, or in organisations that organise their own events.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
