How is the course assessed?
Assessment is on-going throughout the day. In order to pass this course you just need to demonstrate safe, confident practical application of techniques covered. It is not a test of memory – you are not expected to be able to recall all moves in the correct order by the end of the day! However, you will be observed via Zoom completing the full routine either with the use of a visual prompt (the written routine) or with the tutor verbally prompting each move.
