FAQs

Learning online can be a great way to get skilled — whether your life doesn't have room for going to classes, or you like the idea of a more flexible pace of learning.

Online learning works differently depending on the course you study – more information is available on the relevant course page - see our online course list below.

The assessment of your online units may involve:

  • video submissions to demonstrate your skills in the workplace or simulated environment (e.g. conducting a meeting or making a presentation)
  • attendance on campus to demonstrate skills in a simulated workplace environment or completion of a supervised assessment
  • participation in assessment activities via a live virtual classroom or simulated workplace environment
  • some courses require weekly or fortnightly online sessions using Blackboard Collaborate, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom
  • online submission of documentation based on workplace scenarios
  • voluntary or paid role in a business or community organisation, with responsibilities that allow you to demonstrate your skills and to have access to other important resources such as workplace documentation or real customers
  • completion of observation checklists or supervised assessments by an approved person in your workplace, e.g. a workplace supervisor with verified credentials

If you’re thinking of studying with us online, you’ll need access to the following:

  • Reliable broadband internet access
  • Headset with speakers and microphone (for interactive Collaborate or Teams or Zoom sessions)
  • Computer with ability to edit Word documents (.docx)
  • Computer with ability to view Adobe PDF files (.pdf)

We’ll let you know if there are any specific software applications you need for your studies.

If you are concerned that your computer is not suitable, please contact us and we’ll let you know the exact requirements for your course.

To study online, you will need some basic computer skills, including the ability to use:

  • A computer mouse (or trackpad) and keyboard (non-expert typing is fine!)
  • The internet and know how to search the web
  • Office programs, Microsoft Word is the most used (but you'll have access to all the programs in Office 365 via a web browser once you're enrolled)
  • Email (you'll be provided with an email address to use in Office 365 once enrolled)
  • Discussion forums or blogs

If you have any concerns, contact us at enquiry@nmtafe.wa.edu.au and we can put you in touch with your course lecturer.

Some of the courses on the list below can be done completely online. However some of the courses require a practical component which can't be done online, or some may be a mix of online and on campus learning.

We’ll let you know what's required for your course.

Every few years course Training Packages are changed and updated to align with industry requirements.

This means that if you do not complete all the units within the current course by the end of the teachout period, there will be a requirement for you to transition into the newest version of your qualification, which potentially will require you to complete additional units and possibly pay extra fees. If you have any concerns or questions in relation to these changes, please contact the learning area for further information.
