ForestWorks facilitates a network for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and assessors to moderate assessment processes to ensure consistent standards across industry.
Each registered training organisation (RTO) receives an annual summary of participation, which provides evidence for them to meet their Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) requirements for moderation activities.
Members have access to a set of assessment tools, for many competencies covered by the FOLS Skills Verification Program, that are based on the FWP Forest and Wood Products Training Package, and which can be used for their assessment activities. The tools will be made available to registered assessors via the FOLS online portal.

An annual plan of moderation is developed and circulated in March each year.
