Learning Methods & Delivery:

Study methods generally vary from person to person. This is something we are aware of and as a result have created a learning experience that appeals to the different study habits of our students and those currently in a full time job. Although the course content is the same throughout, there are three different types of learning delivery methods used.

Full Time
Reach your full potential through our instructor led classes combined with interactive lessons, practical assignments and in field experience. Our full time offering consist of a full working day, 8 hours per day divided into multiple periods.
