Online learning – Domestic students only

The online (E-Learning) option enables students to study at their own pace. Upon enrolment into the course, students are assigned a trainer who will be there to assist where needed with units and assignments. A user friendly online portal is used to complete the course.  Please note that the work placement hours of 120 are compulsory and you will be assessed in the work place.

After hours part-time delivery is also available to those who cannot attend during the day.
