ACSF Course Profile
An ACSF Course Profile is a collection of the analyses of the required ACSF Core Skill levels of the Units of Competency that make up the qualification that we are delivering.
SIA uses a purpose-built diagnostic tool created by LLN Robot to determine the required ACSF Core Skill levels of a Unit of Competency. The system uses a series of language analysis algorithms to scan the content of a Unit of Competency to identify trigger words and phrases and their associated values based on the training package, ACSF performance indicators and the AQF (certificate) level of the unit. This data is used to generate a training profile that reflects the core skills required to understand and perform the criteria outlined in the unit.
The Course Profile outlines the ACSF Core Skill level requirements a Learner will be expected to be at upon completion of their training.
