Okay, so how do I do it?
Work Skills delivers all its qualifications and units of competency through blended learning, based on face-to-face, one-on-one training with a Work Skills trainer. This may also include utilising CDs, DVDs, textbooks, learning guides, the internet, the phone, and the Work Skills Online Learning and Assessment System, WOLAS. The learning may comprise all or some of these methods. It will depend on location, the pace at which the student wants to learn, and employer requirements. This is all negotiated at the first checkpoint meeting.
Option One: One-on-One Training
You can have the training as an individual. This allows you to have the training delivered at your own pace in a timeframe that suits you. We come to you and deliver training that fits into your work/life requirements. All assessments are completed at a pace that suits your needs.
Option Two: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
If you’ve had lots of experience in this industry or similar in the past; you may be eligible for RPL.
Recognition of Prior Learning means that you don’t require training. Instead, you just need to be assessed on each unit. You will need to draw on all your past experiences so that you can demonstrate that you have already acquired the knowledge and skills. You may be eligible for some units through the RPL process whilst other units may require some training.
