COURSE CONTENT

The course is 4 days, taken over a 5 day period, with Day 3 a break from the classroom. Days start at 9.30 am and finish at 3.30 pm.  Morning and afternoon tea breaks are supplied while lunch is BYO.

Over the 4 days of the course, participants will need to spend a substantial amount of time studying the material to make the most of the training.  We strongly recommend an extra hour each day to review the course content.

All training is conducted in a classroom with one or more instructors.  While there is a large instruction load, many lessons are learned by interactive methods.  Trainers will answer your questions and give feedback.
