Health Industry Training offers a range of delivery methods including face-to-face classes (minimum numbers required), online study through our Learning Management System (LMS) and distance delivery. We are also pleased to offer closed Facebook groups that allow students completing the same qualifications to interact with each other, discuss ideas and upload reference links. The students’ trainer is also involved with these groups to assist as needed.
The length of time depends on the individual enrolment status of each student. Health Industry Training aim to help students complete their course from within twelve months to two years. However, we are flexible in allowing the time needed to complete your chosen course.
Health Industry Training is a Registered Training Organisation. Any units of competency or qualifications undertaken through Health Industry Training are nationally recognised and must be recognised by all Australian Registered Training Organisations.
Depending on the level of the qualification you are enrolling in, you may need to have a previous qualification or be able to demonstrate competencies from another qualification to be eligible to enrol. For example, students wishing to enrol in the Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance, must have seven of the core units of competency from the level III qualification in Allied Health Assistance, prior to enrolling in the level IV. In this instance, the units can be completed prior to enrolment or as part of the Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a formal recognition of your current skills and knowledge, gained outside the education and training system. RPL takes into account any previous formal study, work and life experience, and assesses this against the units of competency for your course. It will then be determined if your prior learning is sufficient for you to receive these particular units of competency toward your qualification. There is a fee associated with RPL, however it is considerably less than formal training.
Credit transfer means relevant units of competency you have completed previously, which are the same as the units of competency offered through Health Industry Training.
Course costs vary depending on the level of the qualification you wish to undertake, and the availability of funding at the time of enrolment.
Health Industry Training has several funding contracts that assist students in completing full qualifications at heavily funded prices. To find out if you are eligible to receive funding, please contact our staff or click here for more information on the types of funding offered.
Health Industry Training offers the following financial support
- Pay for a qualification in full and receive a 10% discount on the full cost of the course; or
- Pay using our ‘payment plan’ option with weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments.
Yes. To be marked competent in a nationally recognised qualification, students are required to demonstrate particular employability skills, including IT skills. To demonstrate your skills in the use of IT, all students are required to have access to a computer, for researching the internet for additional resources and word processing their assessments. Hand written assessments are not accepted.
