The missing link
A Gap Assessment is the process of identifying gaps in existing knowledge and skill levels. This can be especially important for many workers, in particular those with older format “paper tickets”. As part of a skills update process, workers who undertake a Gap Assessment and knowledge / skill gaps are identified will then be able to undertake targeted training and assessment to address these areas.
Our experienced and fully-accredited Assessors are available to perform Gap Assessments for your team, ensuring that you maintain an efficient and competent workforce that has up-to-date activity skills and current certification. This is a key strategic step in developing and maintaining a workforce has the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely and efficiently toward your project goals.
Connect People Training’s assessment systems and processes meet the AQTF guidelines and standards in delivering nationally recognised training.
How is competency defined?
Competency describes a person’s ability to perform to a satisfactory level in the workplace, including the person’s ability to transfer and apply skills and knowledge to new situations, and to achieve agreed outcomes.
The four aspects of competency are:
- Task skills, or the requirement to perform individual skills;
- Task management skills, or the requirement to manage a number of different tasks within the job;
- Contingency management skills, or the requirement to respond to irregularities and breakdowns in routine; and
- Job or role environment skills or the requirement to deal with the responsibilities and expectations of the work environment, including working with others.
Once an employee has had their competency verified they will receive a ticket issued by Connect People Training.
Hold onto your USI
Did you know that your Unique Student Identifier (USI) is kept for life? It’s not used for just the one course that you complete.
A USI is a reference number used to create an online record of your training and qualifications that you have obtained Australia Wide. These qualifications must be nationally recognized to have a USI linked with them.
From your Dozer qualification, to your certificate 3 in Civil Construction Plant Operations, these will remain on your online record.
How does a USI benefit you?
If you’re a student, you will have direct access to all your online records from a secure source. If you lose any hard copy certificates or license cards, you can easily retrieve these records within a click of a button.
If you’re an industry professional or within a training organisation you can efficiently confirm a job applicants nationally recognized training qualification. It’s also a simpler way to streamline assessments and course prerequisites, and share information between training providers.
How do you create a USI?
Your USI is free and takes less than 5 minutes to create. If you are creating a USI for a student, you will need the student’s permission to create it on their behalf.

- Australian Passport
- Non-Australian Passport (along with an Australian Visa)
- Australian Birth Certificate
