        the ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies.
       required by State/Territory Training Authorities for Certification purposes;

How to use the Training Record Book
The off-the-job trainer/teacher must complete the appropriate details about the
training received and the outcomes achieved by the student, by signing and dating
each learning outcome in their respective sections. The signing of learning outcomes
can take place at any time. The achievement of learning outcomes is guided by the

carried out after negotiation between the off the job trainer/teacher and the Workplace
Supervisor.
Where a particular performance criteria must be achieved on the job, a Workplace

signed by the teacher. The Training Record Book is published with the requirements
for each of the performance criteria separated in on and off the job competencies.
The student may not have, or not been able to, complete all the learning outcomes at
the previous placement. The student and supervisor should try to complete and assess
any outstanding learning outcomes from previous placements if possible.
It is a requirement and the responsibility of both student and the training providers to
