The Assemble the crew (ATC) is one of the most important requirements for all Australian Sports Schools. This requires an application from an applicant, who has to sign a training contract (see trainer and assessor qualification requirements below), and complete an orientation and induction course (see trainer and assessor qualifications requirements below). The next step is to register with the relevant Sports Training Centre (TTC) and pay the corresponding fee. Once this is completed, the applicant can then choose to either join the school as an enrolled student or seek enrolment at the school as an existing trainer or assessor (see trainer and assessor qualifications requirements below).
The most common Asquireance Criteria is those that apply to all areas of Asbestos Awareness Training and Certification. As there are many different Asbestos Management Processes, each with its own unique set of Asquireance Criteria, the applicant needs to ensure they tick off all these Criteria to complete the program. These include Asbestos Management Awareness, Asbestos Management Law, Asbestos Management Information, Asbestos Health and Safety, and Asbestos Legal Compliance. Other Asbestos requirements may be specific to a specific course or level of training.
As the listed criteria are wide and broad, it can be quite difficult to identify the most specific Asquireance Criteria that a candidate needs to satisfy for eligibility to become a trainer or an assessor. Each area of Asbestos Management is covered separately by its specific Asquireance Criteria, and so applicants must check all these categories thoroughly. Some areas that need to be addressed include Asbestos Management Law, Asbestos Health and Safety, and Asbestos Legal Compliance. It is also possible to become disqualified due to lack of knowledge in one or more areas if the trainer and assessor application do not address the specific area properly.
As with any employment, there is Aqsa Criteria that is compulsory for all jobs in sport and recreational environments. In particular, most employment within the health and safety sector requires AsqA Criteria 7, which deals with the protection of persons from health and safety risks in sport and recreational settings. Other mandatory criteria include AsqA Criteria 8 which require consideration of the impact on workers of changes to the sport and recreational environment and AsqsA Criteria 9 which consider the impact of training on workers. Other criteria, which may be subject to industry-specific regulations, include AsqsA Criteria 10 which require consideration of the quality of workers’ clothing and equipment; AsqsA Criteria 11 which require consideration of the supply of adequate water and food; and AsqsA Criteria 12 which require consideration of the provision of adequate space. It is also necessary to consider AsqsA Criteria 13 which covers the provision of medical assistance when people suffer an injury while at work.
All AsqsA requirements will vary depending on the trainer and assessor role that you are required to fulfil. In general, the AsqsA requirements for trainer and assessor roles will be similar, but there are a few variations on these basic requirements. This will be detailed further in the sections that follow, and it will be important to identify the exact AsqsA requirements for your particular role before beginning your training or working experience in sport and recreation.
The AsqsA requirements for a trainer and assessor role in sport and recreation differ slightly because some additional tasks need to be taken into account. A trainer and assessor are required to be able to assess the sport and fitness skills of individuals and groups and work with athletes to achieve the best performance possible. A trainer must also be able to assess the potential of a player or group to learn and improve particular sport and fitness skills, as well as be able to identify potential team member strengths and weaknesses. Finally, a trainer must be able to train all team members to bring them together to complete goals and ensure that everyone is working towards the same outcome.
To meet the specific AsqsA requirements for a trainer and assessor role in sport and recreation, you will need to obtain the AsqsA certificate from Sport and Health Management Association (SHMA), which is administered by the Health and Fitness Authority. This certification will show that you have completed the relevant training and are competent in your chosen role. When you apply for an AsqsA certificate you must provide proof that you have completed the appropriate courses and been authorised to teach and practice as an assessor in one of the approved sport and health settings. Some of the courses that you will need include: Physiotherapy and Exercise Science, Aspects of Sport and Exercise, Nutrition and Lifestyle Management, and the Qualification for Personal trainers and Assessors.
The Sport and Health Management Association provide a full list of the AsqsA requirements for your role as a trainer and assessor. It is strongly recommended that you check with the authorities where you intend to practice as a sports coach or trainer before you start training as this will be a very good indicator as to what the standards are. A lot of people fail their sports coaching and assessor role simply because they did not take the time to understand what the standards are. By doing so, you are showing your commitment to helping your client achieve his/her fitness goals. This will help them to achieve the highest levels of performance and become more competitive.
