Requirements of the course

This course includes both online study and on-campus study and assessment.

Once enrolled, you will receive information about how to login to our eCampus and you will need to complete a literacy and numeracy quiz to show you can study the course online. Your study will involve accessing content online for 1 study module, followed by a series of online quiz assessments to test your knowledge.

When you finish your online study, there is two days a week attendance for the duration of the course at campus for the remaining modules, plus a compulsory requirement to attend a practical demonstration and assessment session.

This course can help you get ready for your first job, or re-skill quickly for jobs that are available as WA's economy recovers.
