Were the organisations policies and procedures effective?
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 learning and resource materials to be more than sufficient, adequate and to a high standard. The course itself was simple to navigate around, which assisted with easy submissions for assessment purposes. I will certainly look at Australian Online Courses to study with into the future.
