The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Evidence of the ability to:

  • accurately process and administer registrations through to finalisation for multiple events
  • issue financial administration and event attendance documents for multiple and diverse customers
  • generate accurate registration reports and proactively identify and report on attendance problems
  • integrate knowledge of:
  • event programs and costs
  • formats for reports and documents
  • information required by event managers to monitor attendance numbers and deliver events
  • process and monitor event registrations with speed and efficiency and within event deadlines.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment must ensure use of:

  • actual events for which event registrations are processed and monitored. Events may be created for the specific purpose of skills assessment, but must have commercial, community or business relevance. Small personal events are not appropriate as a means of assessing an individual’s skills and knowledge
  • comprehensive operational and capacity information for venues and sites where events are operated; these can be:
  • real event venues and sites
  • event venues and sites operated within a training organisation such as auditoria, exhibition areas, conference rooms, restaurants and sporting facilities where real events are staged
  • industry current computer systems and software programs for processing event registrations
  • comprehensive event programs, schedules, inclusions and costs
  • industry current template documents for:
  • financial administration of event payments
  • customer event attendance
  • registration reports
  • procedures for processing and administering registrations.

Method of assessment 

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

  • direct observation of the individual using the various features of a computerised event registration system to administer a series of customer registrations
  • activities that allow assessment of the individual’s ability to process and monitor registrations for different events and for varying customer requirements
  • review of documents prepared by the individual:
  • confirmation letters
  • credit notes
  • information or sales kits
  • invoices
  • participant name badge or identification document
  • receipts
  • registration reports
  • service vouchers
  • tickets
  • problem-solving exercises to allow the individual to respond to and report on event attendance problems
  • written or oral questioning to assess knowledge of:
  • event programs and costs
  • formats for reports and documents
  • information required by event managers to monitor attendance numbers and deliver events
  • review of portfolios of evidence and third-party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the individual.

Guidance information for assessment 

The assessor should design integrated assessment activities to holistically assess this unit with other units relevant to the industry sector, organisation and job role, for example:

  • SITTTSL308 Use a computerised reservations or operations system
  • SITXCCS303 Provide service to customers
  • SITXFIN201 Process financial transactions.
