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)
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that involves making a judgement on the skills and knowledge an individual has as a result of past study and/or experience. The aim of RPL is to recognise your existing competencies without having to go through the complete process of training and assessment. You will still need to provide evidence though, upon which your assessor can base their judgement. Evidence must be:
Authentic – it must be your own work
Sufficient – it must demonstrate competence over a period of time, that the competencies can be repeated, and the evidence must be enough so that the assessor can make an accurate judgement regarding competency
Current – it must demonstrate up-to-date knowledge and skills i.e. from the present or very-recent past
Valid – it must be relevant to what is being assesses
You may be eligible to apply for RPL on one or more Units of Competency in this course. Please contact our administration department on 1300 946 309 to discuss your RPL options.
