Classes run at the times shown below. We are flexible with attendance times on Tuesday as we understand that you may be working and need time to get to class.

Tuesdays: 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Saturdays: 9:00am – 4:00pm

 

Whilst there is work online to complete, you will be able to do this during class time at the end of the session if you are having trouble getting it done at home. We do however recommend that you watch video content at home if required. All homework that is listed is able to be completed through your own Learning Management System (computer) login with step by step instruction which is easy to understand.

Our training is a mixture of both. You are required to attend classes and also required to complete additional online coursework from home. This is designed to offer flexibility for those who are working.

No. To fast track you we don’t break for school holidays. We do take a few days off over Easter and the Christmas period. If you are taking holidays or are going away just let your trainer know.

 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

You may be able to complete your qualification sooner through formal recognition of your existing skills. This is known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

To receive RPL, we assess your previous work, education and life experiences against recognised qualifications. Applications for RPL can be made prior to enrolling. Please discuss with your trainer if you wish to apply for RPL or Credit Transfer (CT) on the first day of class.
