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.
