WIA Appoints Assessors

Date : 13 / 10 / 2005
Author : Chris Jones - VK2ZDD

WIA President, Michael Owen, VK3KI, announced today that the WIA Board had formally accredited and registered 5 Nominated Assessors and 67 WIA Assessors, all with effect from 14 October 2005. All have been qualified by the WIA’s Registered Training Organisation.

This is the next step in giving effect to the WIA’s new system of assessment of competency for the qualifications for the new Australian amateur licenses, relying on WIA Assessors, who can provide the practical assessment that will be required when the new structure comes into force, as well as marking examination papers.

The appointments follow the successful Assessor Training courses held in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, conducted by Fred Swainston.

Certificates had been posted today to most of the new Assessors, with the balance to be posted early next week.

“The WIA Board is delighted with the support its new system has been given right across Australia, and is delighted to congratulate this first group” said Michael.

Michael also said that a further group is expected to be accredited and registered in the very near future, as a number of people have been qualified and they will be accredited and registered by the Board as soon as the documentation needed is received from them.

A list of the Assessors, their callsigns and their home towns is annexed to this release and will be placed on the WIA website.
