  • facilities, equipment and resources relevant to individualised plans that are used when supporting people living with dementia
  • legislative and statutory instruments related to reporting
  • organisational policies and procedures
  • opportunities for engagement with people living with dementia and their family, carer or others identified by the person and others involved in service provision.

Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations’ requirements for assessors.
