Course dates close one week before the commencement of the course so that participants have sufficient time to complete all pre-course learning activities. Pre-course learning activities need to be completed before the start of the face-to-face component. The pre-course work will develop your underpinning knowledge for the course to be undertaken.

Participants will require the following for the face-to-face component:
- Photo Identification (i.e. Drivers Licence)

- Your manuals (if applicable)

Participants are required to complete a Pre-Course Workbook before the face-to-face course. This may be completed online or paper-based. Your Trainer will provide you with the information to successfully complete your Pre-Course Workbook.
Participants are then required to attend the face-to-face component to complete the practical assessment.
