Please note, delivery days for this course may be subject to change


Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.

Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes to meet social distancing requirements. Practical Placement is a required component of this course and will be scheduled as soon as possible with an appropriate placement host. Given the current environment, however, this may take longer than normal and therefore, expected completion dates for the course may need to be extended to take account of deferred placement.

If you have any queries on the practical placement of a course, please contact our student information centre on 1300 244 746 or enquiries@chisholm.edu.au.
