When you study with Australian Online Courses, you will be assessed using a competency-based training method.
Competency-based training focuses on the achievement of skills and knowledge against set criteria to meet industry-standard and is not benchmarked against other students’ work.
In this course, the assessment will be comprised of written assignments and exercises, which may include short answer questions, reports, essays, research projects and reflective tasks.
If you do not achieve a competency result on your first attempt, you have two more attempts to pass your assessment. So, you have three attempts in total to obtain a competency result.
In this way, you can complete your course in your own time and at your own pace with the assistance of unlimited tutor support.
I found the course very easy to access and use. The flexibility of being able to go at your own pace is a huge benefit when you are working full time.
K. Sheehan, Halls Head, WA | Certificate of Behavioural Management
I was amazed by how much I learnt in this course it really challenged by preconceived opinions on certain topics and changed them positively. I found the first unit of this course was so interesting and I couldn’t stop going through it until it was finished. Overall I can’t imagine how much knowledge I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t done this course, it’s really changed how I will go forth perceiving and dealing with behaviour.
