Whilst we pride ourselves on our hands-on training, we have had to adjust most of our courses for study from home and remote learning during the COVID-19 restrictions. This means courses will be delivered using a range of methods including online learning, virtual classrooms, workbooks and direct contact with your teacher.
Given the government restrictions that are now in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus in Australia, we expect this new model of study will continue until the government makes changes to these restrictions.

Portland, Hamilton and Colac: Smart Classroom
In 2019 the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment classes at Hamilton, Portland and Colac will be delivered via Smart Classroom.
For Hamilton students, it will be a day class, and at Portland and Colac, it will be a night class.
The Smart Classroom delivery mode allows you to attend and actively participate in classes, interact with other students and the teacher through video conference, build your understanding of how digital technologies can be used in training and education, while at the same time reducing the need for travel – especially at night. Although it is not quite the same as having a teacher in the class with you, the teacher will be available to answer any questions live and in real-time. Teachers are also able to assist students outside of class times via phone and email.
Additional support for this course will also be provided via regular optional daytime workshops at the Warrnambool Campus throughout the course. A teacher will be available to work in person with students, and participants from Hamilton, Portland and Colac are welcome to attend.
