  • Course Commencement

    Course enrolments can commence at any time after the enrolment process is completed.

    This course is a self paced distance learning training course. Students have 12 months to complete the training. Students work through the workbook, practice the material learnt and then complete the assessments.
     
    Due to the flexibility there is a lower drop out rate thus saving students time and money invested in their desired outcomes. In addition, flexible adult learning encourages students to continue the course at their own pace without restrictions as to when and how they complete the course. Therefore, students are able to continue their life roles and incorporate their study into time slots that suit their lifestyles. This also allows those that are working either as an employee, subcontractor or owner/operator to continue to earn money or charge for billable hours, which further serve to reduce the ʻrealʼ course costs. Students have 12 months in which to complete all of their assessments.
