HOW DOES IT WORK?

You will be asked to complete 8 subjects via online learning. You may also apply for Recognition of Prior Learning if you believe you already have the knowledge and skills relevant to a particular unit or units. An RPL application must be submitted at the time of enrolment and the onus is on the student to provide sufficient, current, valid and authentic evidence against each of the units. Where there are gaps in your evidence, a professional conversation with your assessor may provide additional evidence. Your assessor may also ask you to provide further evidence to substantiate your claim of competency in a particular unit/s.

Where gaps in evidence remain – that is that you cannot be considered competent on the evidence provided, gap training will be made available to you. For gap training, you will be provided with workbooks and given assessments to complete. It is possible that gap training might include practical assessments.

HOW LONG WILL MY COURSE TAKE?

This is a self-paced program so the time to complete depends on the rate of submission. It is anticipated the process will take up to 2 years and is mostly dependent on you completing the assessment so that your assessor can review it. We will move at your pace and support you to set achievable goals
