It therefore contains a number of competencies that you must be able to complete at your workplace whilst under the supervision of a qualified/licenced tradesperson. You must gather evidence (in the form of a portfolio) of having obtained this experience within the duration of the course and have it signed by your employer/supervisor prior to submission. If you cannot provide reasonable evidence of your ability to gain this work experience, your enrolment in the course may be cancelled.
Credit (or recognition) for modules/units may be granted based on previous learning, studies, work and/or life experiences. Please discuss this with the teaching section when you enrol.
