Benefits of doing a TAQA/CAVA course

Not only will your skills and knowledge develop from completing this qualification, but you will also receive support while becoming a qualified assessor.

TAQA/CAVA course structure

During the TAQA and CAVA course, the candidate will attend a workshop session, after which they will receive onsite learning. During this time our assessors will deliver information on all course modules, along with collecting evidence on their learner during an assessment on guided activities.
