Course Structures

In order to complete this course, you must:

  1. Complete 12 core units
  2. Complete 29 elective units

Study Mode Definitions

  • Online: Online courses provide the flexibility to study without normally requiring a student to visit a campus. Course content is studied through a number of means including the use of online discussion forums, electronic library resources, by contacting lecturers and teachers, and receiving study materials online/electronically. Work integrated learning, including placements, may be included in some courses.
  • On-campus: Students studying in on-campus mode typically are expected to attend and participate in regular, structured on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the University’s academic term. These activities may include lectures, tutorials, workshops and practice, online or other activities and normally will be timetabled at a CQUniversity campus or approved delivery site.
  • Mixed Mode: Students studying in mixed mode will participate in a combination of online learning activities in addition to site-specific learning activities, which may include residential schools, co-op placements and/or work-integrated learning as a compulsory requirement of a unit. The additional site-specific learning activities are what differentiates a mixed-mode unit from an online unit.

*All study modes may include Vocational placement and/or work integrated learning.

Glencore - Emerald Cohort

The Glencore delivery structure is set up over the period of one year on campus training meeting the requirements outlined in the contractual agreement.

Block A - 35 units of competency

Block B - 3 units of competency.

Block C - 1 unit of competency

Block D - 3 units of competency

Organisation & Delivery Mode:

The program is organized to reflect the learning and work activities that take place within the Fitting and Machining industry. The application of this knowledge is assessed in other components of the program that focus on specific work activities. These comprise of structured training for the period of their apprenticeship during which time students are able to practice and refine their skills in live work situations. In this case, participants must successfully complete all components of the program to be deemed to be competent.

This is done so that candidates are provided with background information and the opportunity to apply skills and knowledge in work similar environments. This is achieved through a combination of face to face, trainer lead theory classes and practical sessions involving small groups and individual activities. This approach is influenced by client and industry need, the learning style of participants and the availability of physical resources.

Candidates are provided with training workbooks for each competency which includes all materials used in the training sessions, assessment materials (other than tests) and reference materials.

It is only when the candidate successfully completes all required assessments that they are deemed competent in the courses.

Schedule: The training program is conducted over the duration of the training plan. The sequence of training is negotiated with the individual candidate, the employers and the RTO.

Weekly tutorials are offered as additional support for those that need it. These are planned and timetabled for one hour per week. For those students who require additional support over and above the tutorials offered by the vocational teaching staff, additional LL&N support is available via the local learning, literacy & numeracy teaching staff. Students requiring additional support are identified by the BKSB test & the vocational teaching staff and are referred to the LL&N teaching staff.

Workplace tasks will be undertaken to confirm the student has met industry standards consistently and over a period time, by way of the Third Party Report.
