Participants who undertake this assessment must have an exit level three (that being a Certificate IV) against the Australian Core Skills Framework in both reading and numeracy.

School leaver
School leaver School leavers must show evidence of completion of their Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) General or ATAR, with a minimum C grade or equivalent in both English and Mathematics.
