Zoom Classroom Sessions – 6 weeks + relevant sea time
Remote / Flexible – 12 months from enrolment date
Zoom Classroom sessions – During COVID we lost our facility. Under the circumstances we are very reluctant to go back to brick and mortar as one never knows what the Govt will do next. So while we were forced to be proactive in a bid to continue to service our clients we have produced an excellent online delivery. We deliver these classrooms exactly the same way we would in a building except we use a different platform. The feedback we have received from our clients has encouraged us to continue this pathway.
If you enroll in a classroom session this can be completed in a 6-week time frame, we start at 0800 to 1600 Monday to Friday. You will be required to complete your assignments in the evening and work on Sundays to complete your coursework.
All theory sessions will be live interactive classes, written exams will be monitored through these sessions and you will have access to all your resources via our online portal.
Remote / Flexible – If you do not wish to attend classes or you do not have the time to attend you can study remotely. Enrol and pay your course fees you will be issued all the course material via an online portal. This is where you access all your resources, and assignments, complete and upload them for your assessor to mark and give you feedback. When necessary you will be given direct access to your trainer to assist you through this process. All students will be assessed practically which can be completed at our Brisbane Office, offsite for Corporate Clients or groups of 8 or more, provided all the resources required have been audited and approved.
