Design and Deliver Training

design and deliver trainingWho should do this training?

This workshop caters for the needs of those for whom training in the workplace is a large part of their job, or is their full job function within a structured training and assessment system. These people would generally be working with nationally endorsed Training Packages and would hold considerable responsibility for training and development of personnel within the vocational education and training (VET) system.  This course forms part of the Cert IV in Training and Assessment.

How long does the course go for?

The workshop duration is 5 days.  Before submitting their assessment, participants are also expected to attend an assessment support day so that a TSA facilitator can review their progress.

What is the cost?

$1300 per person.
This price is for public workshops delivered in our Perth training centre. Special rates can be negotiated with clients for group-based programs delivered exclusively for their personnel.

Where are the training locations?

Our public workshops are located in Perth at our training centre. In-house private training can be arranged at a time and date suitable to your business.
