Step 1: Give us a Call
We need to know what type of waste you deal with, so we get the right qualification identified for you. We also want to know if you have any other relevant qualifications, (which might mean you can skip some units).
Step 2: Review the Quote & Confirm You Want to Go Ahead
Once we know which qualification you need, we will email you a quote to review. If you want to go ahead, just give us a call or drop us an email and we will then send you the registration documents to complete.
Step 3: Registration with CIWM(WAMITAB)
When we get your completed registration paperwork, we register you with WAMITAB and they confirm your registration to us.
Step 4: Your Pre-Assessment Questionnaire & Portfolio
Step 5: Your Assessment Visits
Your allocated assessor will contact you directly to arrange the first appointment, at which they will talk you through your portfolio and the modules you’ll need to complete to gain your award. It is their job to assess your knowledge, ability and skills relevant to your waste site and the qualification and they will ask you to demonstrate this, either through written work, videos and/or voice recordings or a mixture of both.
Step 6: Completing Your Portfolio
The number of assessment visits and the length of time it will take you to complete your portfolio will depend on how much evidence you already have and how much time you can spend working on your qualification. You may only require 2 or 3 visits from your assessor (working on 2 or 3 units at a time) or you might need more time on each unit. Regardless of how long it takes, we’ll be there to support you by phone or email if there is something you are not sure about.
Step 7: Portfolio Review
Once you and your assessor are happy with your portfolio, it will be submitted for an internal quality assurance check. If the IQA picks up something that they think is missing or not completed fully, they may ask for more details (but this doesn’t happen very often).
Step 8: Your Certificate
As soon as we receive sign off from the IQA, we will process your qualification claim and send your WAMITAB certificate to you, so you can hang it on your site office wall!
