LEARNER CORNER ACCESS:
All Learners are granted access to our 'Learner's Corner' on our website, regardless of their chosen mode of delivery.
This portal will provide learners with direct access to Online Tutorials, as well as links to join our secure Facebook Group, where they can interact with fellow Learners, and offer support and advice to one another as they progress through their studies, and allows Learners to submit their Assessments via the portal
It also houses relevant Electronic Resources; Assessments, Learning Guides and additional Handouts, per unit.
Self-paced, External Delivery
The self-paced delivery method is completed in your own time, at your own pace and is ideally suited to highly motivated self-starters.
We provide our learners ongoing support throughout the learning-pathway via telephone, email communications direct with your Trainer and online discussion forums with other learners.
All course resources can be provided electronically, meaning you can commence almost immediately once enrolled, and undertake your studies from any location.
Our classroom delivery includes 20 face to face classroom based sessions, spread over a 6 month period, with our Trainer, as well as take-home open book assessments.
The classroom delivery model offers many benefits, and is our most popular mode of delivery. You will enjoy and benefit from the group dynamics created by having other learners present, and our Trainer guide the class throughout the sessions, and use their extensive industry knowledge to answer questions and queries instantly.
The benefits of this learning experience include the sharing of industry specific WHS knowledge that comes from being part of a group, plus the expertise and personal help provided by the dedicated Trainer. They will ensure that you are equipped with the knowledge and information to tackle your assessment components outside of the classroom.
Please be aware there are limited places available in classroom sessions – bookings are essential!
Can’t attend every session?
We can offer split delivery. This means that if you cannot attend every session within the 6 months, you can attend remaining sessions down the track, or you can tackle those units externally. We understand learner’s availability can alter so aim to work with each individual to formulate the best solution.
