IACC 2022 Assessor webinar recordings

Recordings of the IACC assessor workshops and refresher workshop for the IACC 2022.


All assessors should attend the live webinars for these workshops. Details of future workshops are available in our events section. If you are unable to attend a live webinar, you must watch the recordings before you assess any trainees. New assessors must attend all three workshops and previous IACC assessors only need to attend the IACC Refresher workshop.
