What is online study?

Studying online can give you the flexibility of learning at a time and place that suits you. Courses are fully facilitated by qualified lecturers and span a variety of industries. You will need some basic computer skills and technical access to study online.

Employer-based courses normally have enrolments available at any time.

Employer-based learning and assessment plans are created at an individual level in consultation with you and/or your employer.

The flexibility of employer-based study mode also allows you to structure and undertake your learning and assessment in a way that fits into your professional and personal life.

If you are interested in employer-based study, please contact our Call Centre

Our skill sets are a type of short course that provides certification for specific workplace skills.

Skill sets are made up of one or more units of competency which link to an industry need or regulatory requirement, such as a licence. When you complete a skill set, you will receive a statement of attainment. In some cases this may count towards a higher qualification with further study. 

If you would like to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship with North Metropolitan TAFE, you need to contact the Department of Training and Workforce Development's Apprenticeship Office.

The Apprenticeship Office manages the apprenticeship and traineeship system in Western Australia and helps employers, apprentices and trainees through every stage of their course.

If you have successfully completed a course with us (eg. Certificate III) and want to advance onto the next course in that pathway (eg. Certificate IV), you need to apply online via TAFE Admissions.

If you are enrolled in a course that runs for more than one (1) semester (6 months), you need to enrol for the next semester to secure your place. You will be required to pay your fees for the upcoming semester. We will contact you with enrolment information as soon as your current semester results have been finalised.

Our English programs are designed to help adults from non-English speaking backgrounds to learn or improve English skills.  Enrolment requires attending an interview, so check the dates and locations to apply.
