The normal duration of this program is 6 months; however, program lengths will vary to student’s own self-study commitment, local training arrangements and industry requirements.

The programs consists of training delivery methods: self-study online interactive learning, face to face and practical training (skills demonstration). Our course learning content and assessments have been written to facilitate and maximise an activity outcome therefore a number of our units commence and run along with the practical component. We have our own e-learning and interactive engineers to build our own unit specific content to really give you the best opportunity to not only complete but enjoy your learning experience.

Note: the SCUBA course license and program is not embedded in the Certificate course and is separate coursework.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification, however Scuba stream applicants must complete a dive questionnaire and pending responses, may need to undertake a Scuba dive medical at own expense. During the program students will need to demonstrate the ability to swim a set distance and tread water.

AGI will ask students to complete an Language, literacy and Numeracy (LLN) questionnaire before commencement to assist our staff to propose reasonable adjustments if required to the training delivery taking into account the learner’s LLN.

You must satisfactorily complete both your knowledge development including face to face and self-paced learning (online and distance) and skill development (activity performance with observations) components of each unit to be deemed competent for the qualification.
