Becoming an aged care quality assessor

Aged care quality assessors are employed by the Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency Ltd to visit all residential aged care homes assessing their performance against the Accreditation Standards, promoting continuous improvement and provide education.

To become an assessor, the legal framework outlined in the Aged Care Act 1997, sets out the criteria for Assessors.

Aged care quality assessors must pass an Industry Panel Interview and complete the required training and orientation program.
