This training session covers the fundamental concepts, methods and structure of acQuire. This includes all of the functions that an acQuire user needs to know to use acQuire in an implemented environment. Also included are the creation of workspace objects and the use of manager tools to customise an existing acQuire implementation.
Fair, reliable and valid assessments have been developed to determine the competency of the participant for this accreditation. acQuire Practitioner accreditation is attained by the participant when they have been assessed as attaining acQuire Technology Solutions competency for all learning outcomes in this unit.
Time is allocated in the timetable for these assessments. However, it is likely that participants will need to work on these assessments beyond the allocated class time.
acQuire can supply a computer for each participant. However, the computer supplied can only be used while participants are working in the training facility (i.e. 8.30am – 5.00pm). To continue with their work beyond the training time and to complete assessments, it is recommended that participants use their own computer. This will need to be set up to acQuire Training requirements.
