Online learning

With our online learning solutions, you can do your qualifications anywhere. Our assessment hub, Skills Activator, and our trainee portal are great ways to keep up to date with your training.Online assessment with SkillsActivator

About half of our trainees have an online component to their qualification! If you are completing one of our online qualifications, some or all of your assessments will take place through our interactive learning, resource and assessment platform, Skills Activator. The only exception to this is the NZ Certificate in Exercise (Level 4) – more on that below.

How do online qualifications work?

With all of our qualifications, you will learn as you work, in real-life settings, picking up knowledge and skills with the help of your colleagues and managers.

With online qualifications, assessment activities will be carried out through our online platform. Look for the blue buttons on our qualification pages:

You will complete some assessments through in-person or paper-based tasks, and you will also use Skills Activator to upload evidence and/or complete written tasks.

For those trainees enrolled in the full New Zealand Certificate in Exercise (Level 4), which we've developed in conjunction with Open Polytechnic, you will need to log into our shared iQualify learning platform.

When you have signed up to a qualification, you can login to your trainee portal to access information about your training, track your progress and receive support.

Your portal also has your Step Up Guide and other cool resources that you'll find useful as you go through your qualification!
