How long does the course go for?

The qualification is typically delivered over 14 days of face-to-face training, conducted in four separate blocks as shown below. In addition to attending the face-to-face training, participants will need to allow time to work on the post-course activities for each course.

What is the cost?

The total cost for attending all four modules of the BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is $3290 per person.  However, payment is made on a module-by-module basis.  You only pay for the modules you attend.

This cost is for attendance at public workshops in our Perth office.  Special rates can be negotiated for programs conducted by Training Services Australia on behalf of our clients, exclusively for their personnel.

Training Services Australia has been contracted to offer this qualification via an Existing Worker Traineeship. This is available to existing full or part time employees that are Australian residents and can demonstrate a significant link between their job role or future job role and the qualification (other eligibility criteria may apply). The employer is entitled to claim a payroll tax exemption for the employee for duration of the qualification up to a maximum of 2 years. In WA payroll tax is usually remitted on a monthly basis and is equal to 5.5% of an employee’s gross income including superannuation. This means that if an employee earning $80,000 including superannuation undertook the qualification over 12 months the employer would save $4,400 in payroll tax.
