CBT can be used for training as well as Assessment. CBT works best for refresher type training, as well as theoretical training for the literate group.

CAT is used for Computer Assisted Training, where a blended approach is taken, using CBT on a proxima with a facilitator to assist with the explanation of the training material and assessments with keypads(Clicker or voting device). CAT works best for the semi-literate, or illiterate groups.

Pure assessment is when you make use of electronic media to assess and not train, and can be used for literate, semi-literate or illiterate groups. When using CompAss for CBT, CAT and pure assessment, the results data is kept in the same central database, and everyone that is on the same network as the CompAss server, and is given access, will be able to view the results.  When you make use of CompAss software, you can do both CBT as well as CAT and pure assessment. CompAss will also allow you to create and/or maintain your own CBT, CAT and pure assessments.  Please refer to .

CompAss can be used for both the literate groups on PC, as well as the illiterate groups with the assistance of a facilitator and keypads. This will allow standardisation of training across the Anglo Platinum group. Site specific requirements can be added to the standard training for each site.

The training material used by the facilitators may contain the same visual material, i.e. images and video as the training used for the literate groups.

Although the same training material may be used, there are various ways to approach Computer Based Training, or Computer Aided Training (blended approach with facilitator). The approach will depend on the type of training, as well as the target group, i.e. Refresher type training for existing employees, Operator training for novices etc.  

Examples of training that can be done on CompAss:

  1. Induction/Refresher: New Employees/Existing staff

  2. Licensing theory i.e. LHD Operator, Crane Driver etc.

  3. Statutory training i.e. Safety Rep, Gas Testing etc.

  4. Skills programs theory i.e. Competent A and B, Blasting Assistant etc.

  5. Standards and Operating Procedures

  6. Engineering theory i.e. Cable joining, Cutting and Welding, Conveyors etc.

  7. Mining i.e. Drilling, Charging up, How to Support, Preventing Rockfalls etc.

  8. Safety i.e. Anglo Platinum Safety rules, Office Safety, PPE, Risk assessment procedures, Safety Management etc.

  9. Screening Assessments

  10. K53 learners theory

  11. Software training i.e. How to use your email, Basics on Microsoft products etc.

  12. Basic/Pigeon English (With facilitator)

  13. Leadership and Management

  14. As a kiosk to give staff access to view Standard Operating procedures (especially for staff, whom does not have access to a PC)
