Option 1: Workplace Based
Our Trainer Assessor will conduct all teaching and assessment at your place of work, this is available to both Appreciates and Full Fee students. Please note: If your workplace doesn’t have the required scope of work for a particular unit of competency we can conduct the training and assessment at our campus.
Option 2: Classroom Training
All your learning and assessment for each of the units is delivered in a classroom environment with other students (classroom training requires a minimum of 5 students).
Option 3: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
