Delivery Methods

This program can be delivered in the following methodologies:

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

If you have a history of work in the demolition or building industry, we may be able to give you RPL for the skills and knowledge you already have. If you believe this might be the case, please contact us  and we will send you further information on the RPL process.

If you currently hold AQF qualifications please let us know of this. It may be possible to cross credit some units towards your Certificate III in Demolition.

Face to face delivery

These programs typically run for 5 to 8 days dependent on class numbers, trainees’ English language skills and previous experience.

There is also assignment work to be completed in the evenings and after the course.

A minimum of six trainees is required to run such a program.

Self-paced distance learning

The trainee completes the program on a unit-by-unit basis as follows:

Learning and assessment materials for an individual unit of competency is e-mailed to the trainee. The trainee then completes the assessment/assignment and returns them to us. The assessment is marked and feedback is supplied.

Once completed the next set of materials are sent and the cycle start over again.

Blended delivery with face to face and distance learning

As the name suggests we can offer a program that is a blend of both face to face and self-pace distance learning.

This programme/course is undertaken in partnership with and under the auspice of the Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO) the MTO Group (RTO No: 32493).
