From the Author Antonio De Maria B App. Science (Disabilities) Cert 4 Workplace Training, Registered Nurse These books have been written with the worker, the client or person being supported, and the organisation in mind so that all stakeholders are served. This book is a compilation of over 28 years of work in which I personally have been involved. Thanks to my specialist colleagues and other team members who have provided me with information and advice, I am able to update these periodically. I have included many best practices in a professional yet straightforward way so the worker can use it as not only a learning reference but long after when they need to review a part of their job role. This book does not just contain theory; it's about a hands-on approach! You should use it as a tool for your learning, and in addition you should make sure you interact with the supervisors and mentors you have in a workplace. For VET practitioners; If it is being used in the VET sector, you should be mindful of all local legislation, and regulations, and take care that as an assessor you ensure you implement the critical and essential aspects of the assessment requirements. You may wish to moderate this, and vary the assessments, as you may find that in your situation you may not require all the assessments I have included, or may find you wish to add a supplementary assessment as well. These practices are based on best practices and adaptable internationally across many work or domestic environments
