What will be covered

This on-demand course provides participants with a full overview and introduction to the Australian National VET System. We cover off on all of the skills and knowledge that VET trainers, assessors, administrators and managers require, but don't learn cover off in formal training programs such as the Certificate IV or Diploma in Training and Assessment.

In this on-demand course we go beyond the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification and take a deep dive into the Australian Vocation Education and Training (VET) Sector, which is highly regulated and can be difficult to navigate.
