About West Australian Institute of Further Studies

West Australian Institute of Further Studies, “WAIFS”, is one of the top Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) in Perth, Western Australia. As such, it must comply with national standards which ensure the consistent delivery of high-quality training.

Businesses want employees who ‘know how to get things done’;

Businesses want employees who challenge the norm, think outside the box and are open-minded! What this means is that businesses highly rate employees who can change things for the better.

WAIFS includes relevant work-based training in a number of our courses so that students learn while doing.
