The practical knowledge and skills I have learnt throughout the course as well as having the qualification from completing a nationally accredited course, will allow me to fulfil my desire to travel the country....making and fixings things!

Resources required

No specific resources are required to successfully complete this course.

It is recommended that students have access to a reliable internet connection to access TAFE Queensland Gold Coast's online learning system, and a computer with up-to-date software, including Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash Player.

This equipment and software is available for students to use at all TAFE Queensland locations.

Timetable

Delivery is held over 4 years at Ashmore using a combination of workplace training and TAFE attendance.

Many TAFE Queensland Gold Coast apprenticeships now offer the option of more on-the-job training and therefore less time spent attending TAFE. Wherever this is the case a TAFE Queensland Gold Coast Trainer is assigned to attend your workplace to deliver training and assess your skills and knowledge.

TAFE Queensland Gold Coast has structured training for various course competencies that are not practised regularly in the workplace so many employers may still choose to send their apprentice to TAFE to learn those skills, however, this is done by negotiation between the employer and the TAFE Queensland Gold Coast Trainer.

The approved hours for an individual apprentice will vary according to the units of competency specified in their individual training plan.
