Delivery and Assessment

Classroom Training
Training is delivered ‘face to face’ by qualified trainers and students are required to attend each scheduled class. The trainer will moderate the learning pace, method and sequence appropriate to the learning needs. Learning methods will vary and can include case study scenarios, field trips, ‘hands-on’ practical classes, role-play techniques, discussions, presentations and assignments.

Assessment tasks and strategies cover a wide range of methods and may include the creation of specific written documents, projects or reports, formal questions (multiple choice, short and long answer), practical demonstrations, small or large group tasks, oral presentations, problem-solving tasks, case studies and discussions.
Broadly classroom assessments have two or three assessment tasks for each unit of competency or module.
As a general rule for major assessments, students are provided with task assessment instructions including the date the task is due for completion.

There is no work-placement requirement for this qualification.


Qualification Recognition

This qualification is based on the standards set by Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) and is recognised throughout Australia.


Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning

Students may be granted RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) or Credit Transfer if they are able to demonstrate that they have achieved the level of skills and knowledge equivalent to the unit they seek credit for through work experience, through life experiences or similar study at another institution. Students can apply for credit transfer or RPL at the time of enrolment. Fees for RPL application are $145 per hour.

Applicants applying for RPL/CT should submit the RPL/CT application along with their original supporting documents to Student Administration. Where RPL is being applied, the student must submit all relevant evidence of work experience and where learning has occurred.
