Students are required to wear suitable attire (workplace) in class by week 3.
Classes are from 9am to 2:30pm, 4 days per week.  The average course duration will be advised at your information interview or group information session. CEA will assess the needs of each student and if required extend the classroom component.

To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have attended the minimum set class hours (80%) and work experience as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency.

A work experience placement may not be offered if:

  • Less than 80% of class days are not attended, including all required LLN sessions.
  • A satisfactory result in classroom and simulation components of all required units has not been achieved.

Other course requirements
Students are required to obtain and wear the uniform clothing advised. The training site is a work place and the rules on clothing, conduct, respect for yourself and others must be followed. These are listed in the student manual you will receive on enrolment.

This programme is an “In Class” programme under the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) funding.  Students are able to complete units and can achieve the qualification if they successfully achieve competency in the units. They may also be supported for an extended period appropriate for their acquisition of the required skills as some learners simply require additional classroom support and this is a benefit of being part of the SEE programme.

Recognition of Prior Learning
RPL is available to all students but is not funded under SEE which is a group classroom programme. If students wish, they may apply for RPL on a fee for service basis.

* Many organisations by their own policies will exclude students from work experience and job applicants from employment should they have any conviction. Queensland Police Criminal history check will disclose convictions even if they are over 10 years old.
