At Train N Trade we understand that not every person learns the same way or at the same pace. That’s why when you do this course with us, we will ensure that we identify and attend to any Language, Literacy or Numeracy short falls you may have. We will also look at your computer skills and literacy and ensure that you are at a level that is suited for the course, and if not, then we will dedicate additional time and effort to bring you up to speed. Before commencing any of our courses you are required to sit an LLN course and may be asked about your computer habits and required to complete some foundational computer skills. This exercise will help us to identify any LLN or computer skill shortages you may have and make sure that we are able to help you to get up to speed.
A credit transfer recognises previous learning undertaken at one institution or provider as being equivalent to the learning undertaken at another institution or provider. Credit transfer may be granted for individual units of competence which are deemed to be equivalent. In general, the outcome of a successful application for credit transfer is advanced standing into your desired course. This means that you may be granted an exemption for a particular unit of competence for the course in which you are enrolled. In this way, you will not be required to repeat your previous learning. Credit transfer reduces unnecessary duplication and increases your capacity to maximise your career and employment opportunities. If you think you are eligible for credit transfer please contact our office to arrange an application form being provided.
