How many weeks does the course run for?
30 weeks excluding Queensland State School Holidays and public holidays
How many days/hours per week is the course?
Classes run one day per week 9:00am – 2:30pm. Please note course hours may occasionally vary due to assessments or excursions.
Can the course be fast tracked?
No. Our courses run only one day a week to allow fellow students to continue employment/schooling and personal commitments. We also find this is the best way for all students as there are some weeks where there is considerable homework to complete.
What do I bring on my first day?
Pen and paper for any of your personal notes, enclosed shoes and your USI number (see below for details).
What is your USI?
As of January 2015 it is a government requirement that all students are required to register for a Unique Student Identifier (USI) before course commencement. Your number can be obtained from http://www.usi.gov.au/Students/Pages/steps-to-create-your-USI.aspx
A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account. A USI will allow an individual's USI account to be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection allowing an individual to see all of their training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.
The USI will make it easier for students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that students' VET records are not lost.
The USI will is available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed from when the USI comes into effect on 1 January 2015.
The USI initiative will:
- Seamlessly link information about a student's VET achievements, regardless of where they studied
- Enable students to easily access secure digital transcripts of their achievements
- Give student’s access to, and more control over their educational information
