If you receive a Not Yet Satisfactory result for this Assessment Task, it will be due to you not satisfying the requirements of one, multiple or all aspects of the task.

Should the student wish to appeal any decision relating to outcome of this assessment task, the student should follow the Academic Grievance policy and procedure available in the Student Handbook and Skills Training Australia website.
