Online study and application

If you’re looking for a flexible and convenient way to study that fits around your busy lifestyle, online study could be the answer.

Studying online doesn’t mean you’ll be sitting reading a screen all by yourself, with nobody to talk to and no lecturer to help you – many of our online courses are run in virtual classrooms so you’ll be able to interact with your classmates and lecturer.

Please note the following information will assist you prior to completing the Online application form below.

FAQs

A​ flexible way to obtain a qualification

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 (eg 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
  • 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, eg 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 Blackboard Collaborate sessions)
  • Computer with ability to edit Word Documents (.doc / .docx)
  • Computer with ability to view Adobe Portable Documents (.pdf)
  • Access to a video recording device with the capability to transfer to a computer/YouTube (e.g. iPhone or similar smartphone, or traditional video camcorder).

We’ll let you know if there’s any specific programs 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 track pad) and keyboard (non-expert typing is fine!)
  • Programs like Microsoft Office (Word is the most used)
  • The internet and know how to search the web
  • Email
  • 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.

Yes, some of the courses on the list 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 face-to-face 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.

  • BSB30115 Certificate III in Business
