Course Dates

Courses are held on a regular basis throughout the year, with a new course starting on average every 2 weeks and lasting for approximately two (2) weeks (10 working days). This certificate is a

competency based course and therefore the course duration is student based learning and is run until competency is achieved.

Course Start Times

Starting times for courses are usually 9:00am and finishing time around 4:00pm. These times could vary slightly as depending on how many people are enrolled in the course and other factors involved in the delivery of a course such as Language and Literacy problems.

If you need to vary these times then please see you trainer and every effort will be made to assist you. Time missed in the first week of the course is very difficult to make up though without joining the next course so if possible it would be important to try to make it to each day in this week.
