This course is offered through connected learning. Connected learning is an education delivery model where a teacher leads a virtual classroom that can be accessed by students in different geographic locations.
This is just like a regular classroom, but teachers and students use the latest web conferencing technologies to connect. This provides you with access to more courses without leaving your local community. You will also build a wide professional network by studying alongside students in different locations and strengthen your digital literacy skills which are increasingly important in the modern workplace.
Connected Learning Centres are custom designed to utilise modern technologies, simulations and virtual reality experiences to offer you a wider range of choices, more accessible, practical training and flexible learning opportunities.
Our Connected Learning Centres will equip you with the skills you need for the jobs you want - in regional NSW, or anywhere in the world. If you would like to explore your local Connected Learning Centre

SMART AND SKILLED FEES
This course is government-subsidised, meaning you pay a portion of the full course fee to TAFE NSW and the NSW Government will pay the balance. However, you must meet certain eligibility criteria for this to apply.
Depending on your previous qualifications and experience, your fee may be less than the maximum fee quoted. Your actual fee and eligibility for concession/exemption will be calculated and confirmed during the enrolment process. Payment plans are available through TAFE NSW for Smart and Skilled eligible qualifications.

FULLY GOVERNMENT SUBSIDISED

If you are not eligible for subsidised training, you can still choose to enrol in the course but will need to pay the full (non-subsidised) fee.
