Default Vetassess Telephone Interview following Gap Training completion

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that depending on when you complete your Gap Training through TAFE, your Statement of Attainment (may or) may not have a Sustainability element on it.

I found this out after I posted my Statement of Attainment to Vetassess for the issue of my Cert 3 in Electrotechnology, only to be told that I needed to complete a Telephone Interview to "verify my experience".

This left me a bit worried as I wondered what on earth was up with my application….
It turns out that I hadn't got a Sustainability module in my course due to when I started the Gap Training. (February 2013).

Long story short, a Vetassess assessor phones you to ask a half dozen questions relating to Sustainability, such as:

*Can you name a Sustainable energy source?
*Can you name a non-sustainable energy source?
*What does the star rating label on an electrical appliance mean?
*What effects are Greenhouse gasses having on the environment?
*Can you see the effects of global warming on the planet?

(questions are paraphrased as I didn't write them down at the time, just wrote them now from memory!)

There were couple of other simple questions, but I can't remember them all!!!

Anyway, I couldn't find any information on this telephone interview and what was involved, but if you read this and it relates to you then hopefully you won't need to worry unnecessarily.

I was asked those questions too, but the last 2 are actually not proven fact, they are opinions and should not be test questions!!!
