Assesment and completion:


During the guidance process the candidate prepares a portfolio, which is evaluated by a committee. If the candidate has submitted authentic, valid and relevant proof of knowledge, skills and competences from the operational standard, the committee may:

  • validate the contents of the occupational standard in full,
  • validate the contents of the occupational standard in part and define the knowledge, skills and competence to be verified,
  • refuse to validate any of the contents of the occupational standard because the candidate has not provided proof of any of the knowledge, skills and competences under the occupational standard, in which case it will verify the occupational standard in full.


The candidates will first prepare and then defend at the assessment session their professional project assignment to be handed over to the commission in an appropriate format (DVD,USB; electronic portal, etc.). The professional assignment must include:

  • Up to 10 minutes of audio footage to submit to the commission,
  • The description of the process for the selected field of work: term and technical plan (microphone placement, connections between audio devices, etc),
