Course Description:

The course is delivered over 64 study weeks. (Up to 94 weeks including holidays) Students must log a minimum of 400 supervised, ‘paid’ or ‘unpaid’, work experience hours. The student is responsible for collecting evidence proving the supervised ‘paid’ work experience hours. Supervised ‘unpaid’ work experience placements must be approved by the General Manager before starting the work experience hours. In addition, the college will provide a logbook to record the work experience hours which we will check on completion.

Students study between 3 to 7 units across an eight-study week term then have a 2 week “Research Break”. Students are required to participate in the training as a condition of their visa.

We offer intakes every week except holiday and Research Break weeks. The courses are assessed through Assignments/ Workbooks, Case Studies, Written Tests and Observation Checklists. Academique supports recognition of prior learning. Students who have substantial painting and decorating will be allowed to apply for a ‘Fast Track’ option. (If on a student visa early completion must be reported via PRISMS.)

Locations

The qualification requires evidenced knowledge and skills in a wide variety of locations using a broad range of equipment on diverse materials assessed on multiple occasions. As a consequence, students will be required to complete numerous assessment tasks at our Southport campuses in specially created simulated environments on specified days.

Some assessment tasks require the use of very expensive hire equipment. In the event that a student does not attend a scheduled assessment task (as advised by email to their registered address) the student might have to pay to arrange a private assessment opportunity. (The fee is based on the actual cost of the assessor and equipment: up to $1,500.00. Evidenced compelling and compassionate circumstances might create exemptions).

Equipment

Students are required to bring their own professional quality tools and protective equipment to achieve
competence in their course units. Staff will provide extensive advice.

Reporting

If students successfully complete all units of their course more than two calendar weeks prior to their
course completion date (as per Confirmation of Enrolment) we are legally required to report the
cessation of their enrolment to the respective government authorities, including Immigration.
