Key Points: 

  1. Courses are back in the classroom or you can choose the remote or distance learning option using the video conferencing platform, Zoom. Our remote course is run in a similar way to our classroom-based course. Each day is led by one of our experienced trainers. Just like in our classroom face to face class, learners are supported throughout the day by their trainer, there are plenty of learning activities and interaction between learners as well as time to work on assessments. The main difference is you and your classmates will be in a virtual classroom.
  2. After completion of the classroom or zoom sessions, we also offer follow-up skype and zoom tuition for those requiring revision, consolidation and one-on-one tuition. Whilst enrolled in our course, students can have access to these sessions by appointment with their trainer.
  3. We use integrated assessments. This means less work for you. 
  4. Our assessments have been created by us. We do not use "off-the-rack" assessments. 
  5. Certificates are issued quickly after students are deemed as competent in the qualification.

We believe we have the best and most dedicated trainers in Australia.
