What are the entry requirements for your courses?

All students are required to a language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) assessment at enrolment.

Some courses require you to have  blood collection skills or previous experience.

Entry requirements are listed at the bottom of each course page. 

Can I study your courses online/via distance?

Our courses are delivered through a combination of face to face and online training.

Students must attend practical day(s) for most of the courses we deliver due to the hands on, practical skills that are required in healthcare. 

How much time will I need to study each week?

This differs from course to course and student to student. We suggest on average 15-20 hours per week.

Can I take longer to complete a course?

We allow students up to 3 months after their last scheduled training session to complete all course requirements (assessments and mandatory work placement). After this time you will need to apply for an extension. 

What if I need to miss a day of class?

If you are absent from class please contact 1300 366 044 and provide a medical certificate. The maximum number of classes that may be missed is 3, after that you will be transferred into another class.  

Are your courses nationally recognised?

We offer accredited courses which are nationally recognised, as well as non-accredited short courses.

Nationally recognised courses always have a course code followed by a name such as HLT37215 Certificate III in Pathology Collection

You can view the nationally recognised accredited courses we offer by opening the ‘Scope’ tab on https://training.gov.au/Organisation/Details/90991 

Are there any extra costs involved with the courses?

No, all materials, resources and equipment are included in the course fee. 

What is a USI? Do I need to have one?

From January 2015, the Federal Government developed a system called the USI (Unique Student Identifier), to help Australian students gain access to their results when they complete a nationally recognised course, or part thereof. The USI is generated online, does not cost anything and will be recorded whenever you enrol in a nationally recognised VET course.

To create your USI click here: https://www.usi.gov.au/students/create-your-usi

You will need to supply your USI at the time of enrolment.

Please note that if you do not have a USI, we will not be able to confirm your place in the course.
