Important information

As it is expected that most students will already be employed in the industry, the course is delivered in a combination of online theory and lab based skills to minimise time spent away from work. The theory and assignment component can be completed online in your own time while the skill component is to be undertaken in our industry relevant lab at our Midland campus over the course of approximately one week. This can be done during the day or on some week day evenings.
