The way you learn may change during your enrolment to ensure the best learning experience or to keep you safe as COVID-19 restrictions change, and some of our face to face classes may change to online or virtual classroom learning. Also, to ensure that we keep you safe while studying, we may modify our face to face classes to meet physical distancing requirements and increased cleaning on campus. If work placement and the demonstration of practical skills are requirements of your course, there may be a modification or delay in the planned timeframe due to COVID-19 impacts. Be assured, we'll keep you informed every step of the way.
This course is currently scheduled on Monday with evening classes, and an optional tutorial session on Friday with morning classes. This timetable may change and will be confirmed by your teacher.
SMART AND SKILLED FEES

Depending on your previous qualifications and experience, your fee may be less than the maximum fee quoted.
