This program requires that the trainer and trainee develop a binding training plan with realistic target dates for completion of theory and practical components. The practical component will be set up by the laboratory, either using its facility or through cooperation with another agency, such as a local college or regional laboratory.
Core modules in the training program component require an assessment. The assessments are usually in the form of multiple choice questions. They are constructed and administered such that the questions and the student responses are confidential.
Upon completion of the program, the trainee will have the following:
- Knowledge base to complement the skills and abilities required by the existing AFTE training materials and requirements
- Competency record that meets the requirements of accrediting bodies
