Overview of assessment 

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

Evidence of the ability to:

  • prepare registration materials and equipment and process on-site attendee registrations for multiple events
  • check registration details and provide event documentation for multiple and diverse attendees
  • identify and resolve registration discrepancies
  • integrate knowledge of:
  • event programs and costs
  • formats for registration reports and attendee documents
  • procedures for processing on-site registrations
  • safety and access issues for on-site registration areas
  • process on-site 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 on-site event registrations are coordinated. 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
  • venues and sites where events are operated with a designated on-site registration area; 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-realistic ratios of registration staff to attendees
  • industry current computer systems and software programs for processing on-site event registrations
  • comprehensive event programs, schedules, inclusions and costs
  • industry current template documents for:
  • registration reports
  • attendee documents
  • financial administration of on-site event payments
  • procedures for processing on-site 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:

  • activities that allow assessment of the individual’s ability to prepare registration materials and equipment and process on-site attendee registrations for different events and for varying attendee requirements
  • review of materials prepared by the individual in advance of the event:
  • attendee documents
  • registration reports
  • direct observation of the individual using the various features of a computerised event registration system to process a series of on-site registrations
  • direct observation, using role plays, of the individual:
  • interacting with venue staff to set up the registration area and resolve safety issues
  • interacting with attendees to check registration details and provide event documentation
  • problem-solving exercises to allow the individual to respond to on-site registration discrepancies and safety issues
  • written or oral questioning to assess knowledge of:
  • event programs and costs
  • formats for registration reports and attendee documents
  • procedures for processing on-site registrations
  • safety and access issues for on-site registration areas
  • 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.
