Active Volunteer Roles

Application Advisor

ASET’s certification program is supported by trained staff and volunteers. Staff members serve as a resource to applicants. Staff answer questions about the application process and support volunteers who are working with applicants or assessing applications.

  • Ensure applicants understand the requirements of the competency summary;

  • Applicants gather and prepare work experience examples to include in the competency summary;

  • Provide technical advice in relation to competency summary indicators.
