understand internal and external roles and how they have an impact on safety and health in the organisation
explore the main functions and aims of an organisation, and how strategic drivers affect its operation
learn about monitoring safety and health performance, and how improvement plans can be used to improve practices

So, the learner does not need to visit a nominated assessment centre.
