If the trainer believes that the student may need to study more or log more hours to become a competent operator, then that student will be welcomed back for more training, at no extra charge.
Assessments are run Thursdays and Fridays mornings starting 7.30 am and Thursday Evenings starting 4 pm at our Lawnton Facility and Tuesdays 12.00 pm at Sunshine Coast.
Most Students should only need about 2 hours for the Theory exam, and 30 minutes for the Practical assessment. A timeslot for the Practical exam will be allocated with the assessor following the theory assessment.
An Oral Assessment Option can be arranged one-on-one with the assessor, for students with Language, Literacy and Numeracy difficulties. You can choose this option when making your booking below. Fees apply.
To qualify for RPL the candidate MUST provide evidence of:
