All the training is adaptable to the students involved. Training is delivered by a number of methods including classroom/face to face training and self paced /flexible learning which will be supplemented by phone and email support.
Self paced learning is particularly suitable to people who do not live on the Gold Coast or who have difficulty attending face to face training due to other commitments or travel. Security courses in rural areas or main centres can be very expensive compared with our course costs. Self paced /flexible learning requires that you complete part of the course at home by way of studying the resource manual and completing the workbook. This is followed by one day of training and assessment at our training rooms; this day requires you to demonstrate to your trainer that you have an understanding of what was covered in your self paced study.
Studying for your Security Courses by way of self paced/flexible learning will help you overcome many of the barriers associated with in-house type courses such as travelling to a venue which can be considerable, taking time off work, feeling uncomfortable studying with other students who may be in a different age group and saving on those hidden costs such as transport and parking. Therefore it provides all students with the ability to study in a way that best suits them including their other commitments or comprehension abilities.
Students who reside away from the Gold Coast and who are unable to pick up the training material personally can obtain the training material using these options
- The resource manual and workbook will be emailed on payment of course fees. Students will need access to a printer to print off the workbooks as they need to be completed by handwriting the answers.
- The resource manual and workbook can be posted which will incur an additional cost for the postage
