Is this course Nationally Recognised?

This course is not a Nationally Recognised Qualification or unit of competency. These programs are short courses designed to meet the requirements of specific skill sets.

Each short course can be adjusted so that it reflects the requirements of one (or more) of the business services units of competency.

An assessment program can be developed to evaluate competency if the employer decides that they would prefer short courses to achieve a nationally recognised unit of competency as an outcome.
