Course materials

Online courses are delivered in modules that are completed sequentially in your own time. There may be activities to assist learning within the course, with additional optional activities included as part of the course materials. Assessment quizzes are provided at either the end of modules or the end of the course which a student must complete and pass.

For Classroom courses, a Student Manual is provided and will be utilised by the trainer in delivering the course. The trainer will integrate additional/optional information as required to support the learning experience.

Completing the courses

Classroom courses are usually delivered over 3 – 4 days in a classroom environment. These courses will be offered on a specific timetable, with details of course dates included when they are advertised for enrolment. The courses may include theory and practical assessments. Students are required to complete all assessments within an agreed timeframe to reach competency.
