With online study you will be completing your course via an online platform which contains all your study material and assessments. You will be provided a login and password to access this material once you have been enrolled at North Metropolitan TAFE.
Online is a little different to on-campus study as you do not have face to face contact with your lecturers and you do not engage directly with fellow students during every-day class activities. If on-campus study is not your preference, then online study is a great option. Rest assured you will be supported by your online lecturers.
You will also have access to lecturers via your online dashboard. The lecturers will help to clarify your concerns, assist with the course content, mark your assessments and provide you with feedback if required
This qualification is delivered in three stages over three semesters of study. During each stage, attendance on campus and online for practical demonstrations will be required. You will only need to enrol and pay for one stage at a time.
A Work Placement is compulsory for students undertaking a Certificate IV or Diploma as some units in these qualifications require you to demonstrate your skills in a work place setting. These units will be highlighted on your study plan.
