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 prepare and then, as part of the assessment, defend a professional assignment, which they bring along to the assessment interview. 
In the professional assignment, the candidates define, analyse and evaluate all of the phases of media archiving work. The candidates submit their professional assignment to the commission in an appropriate format and on an appropriate medium (DVD, USB; electronic portal, etc.).
