Underpinning Knowledge Requirements ________________________________________
Q1. The way how I identify and use different types of evidences when carrying out assessments are by reading through all the chosen units assessment reports to have a clear understanding of the criteria/elements which the candidate must meet.

The witness must have knowledge and experience in the area which I will assess to allow them to write up the statement otherwise it will not be valid.

This saves the candidate a lot of time and effort and fast tracks he collection of the evidence.
