As such the course is delivered using a blended approach which includes an initial five (5) day classroom-based component plus the additional post course reading and assessment submissions.
It is expected that the course will take students approximately 450 hours, including the 5-day intensive component, to complete. Students must complete this course within 18 months of enrolment.
Depending on individual background, experience and access to resources, the total hours needed to achieve the BSB51315 Diploma of Work Health and Safety may vary, but all learners need to meet all the requirements as outlined in each unit of competency.
