COURSE DELIVERYThere are three different delivery modes that students can choose from for this course.
Online learning allows students the flexibility of completing their course at their own pace, at times to suit work and other life commitments. Avoiding commutes, classrooms and rigid timetables are just a few good reasons to undertake online learning. Students can “attend” a course at anytime, from anywhere as your training material and assessments are online.
Distance learning allows students to have the same amount of convenience and flexibility as online learning. The only difference is that instead of studying online, you will be studying via workbooks. Distance learning is perfect for students that prefer to have hard copy resources.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Skills but not qualified?
RPL is a process whereby you demonstrate that you currently have the required skills and knowledge for particular units/qualifications within the industry that you are experienced. RPL focuses on your life and work experiences and how they meet the criteria of the national qualifications.
Through your experiences you may be able to gain a full qualification or a partial qualification. QTS have created a Recognition of Prior Learning kit that includes a portfolio of evidence checklist. The checklist details the information and evidence you need to collect and provide in order to demonstrate that you have the required skills and knowledge to obtain the units/qualification. The process is rather straight forward and we are here to help with any questions that you may have along the way.
However you look at it, RPL may be the solution to this frustrating problem of having the skills but not the qualification.
COURSE DURATIONQTS courses are self-paced. Enrolments are valid for 12 months. Students can apply for an additional 6 month extension if required at a cost of $250 AUD.
STUDENT SUPPORTQTS provides 24/7 support! Students are supported by their industry experienced trainer via telephone and email throughout enrolment.
