Prior to commencing the assessment you will need to select a venue to assess. If you currently work in a hospitality venue, then
it is recommended to choose this because of ease of access. Otherwise, you can choose a venue you are familiar with and have
relatively easy access to. It is beneficial if you are able to speak with the proprietors/managers to gain proprietary information.
The selected venue needs to be in the same town as the campus at which you are studying (except for online students). Unless
you have the express permission of your tutor and/or the Unit Assessor, the venue MUST NOT be in country other than Australia.
There are two parts to this Assessment which assess the learning in Topics 1-3
