Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice Level 4 (IQA)

Formerly known as the Internal Verifier Award (D34) or the V1, this qualification is for people who verify the work of other assessors and want to become a moderator.

Really pleased with the whole process so far and Sam has been fantastic. I have had a bad experience with other providers offering the same kind of online training but this so far could not be better
