We are both proud and confident to say that we would have developed an informative and interactive learner portal for this certification. We have worked tirelessly on our portal to provide you with an educational pathway that delivers more variety, interactivity and meaningful information using a variety of platforms than any other provider. We have quite literally picked up our full-time course and placed it on our portal where you can access it at any time and in any location.
Over the years we have created in-house learning materials that include presentations, animations, videos, recorded webinars, live webinars, industry-approved texts, additional support materials and much, much more to ensure that our Blended Delivery Course delivers you the same learning, qualification, employment outcomes and opportunities when compared to our full-time course.
