There are no prerequisites for this course. This course does contain components that require students to demonstrate their practical skills. Students will need a minimal level of physical fitness to undertake the assessment requirements. If this could be a concern please do not hesitate to contact one of our team.

This course will be delivered and assessed over a period of six hours. No pre-course learning or assessment is required.

At Aspire Education and Training we recognise some students have vast amounts of knowledge and experience within various areas and they are purely seeking to formalise their skills. For students seeking this option we offer a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway. We endeavour to structure our RPL process in a way that will both minimise cost and time while always ensuring the integrity and validity of the assessment process.

The basic steps involved in a RPL pathway include:

  • Request a RPL application form from admin@aeat.com.au
  • Collect and forward supportive evidence along with your completed application form to admin@aeat.com.au
  • Your application and evidence will be assessed by one of our qualified staff members
  • One of our staff members will then contact you in regard to your application to seek further information if required.
  • If gaps in evidence remain a personalised training and assessment plan will be developed to fill these gaps.
  • Once the assessment has been completed to a satisfactory level you will be issued with your certificate.
  • Although we would like to state a cost this can vary depending on evidence provided and training required to complete the process.
