Complete an online TAFE/vocational course
Each of our courses in Melbourne is available online!
Unlike a lot of other institutions in Melbourne, we’ve offered online learning as an alternative to in-person attendance for each of our courses for years.
As a result, our online learning system is highly refined, and designed to replicate the classroom experience as much as possible.
A lot of other online courses boil down to a single pre-recorded lecture each week, with worksheets emailed to you.
By contrast, our online courses:
- Use virtual whiteboard so you can interact with the material
- Are held in real-time, allowing you to interact with other students and question your instructors
- Maintain small class sizes so you aren’t drowned out by others
- Are fully recorded, so you can go back over anything you might have missed
Whether you can’t commit to travelling into the city on a regular basis or you simply aren’t able to make it in one day, our online courses give you more control over how you study.
