Can I do the entire course online?

The course involves blended learning: online and on-campus. The Air Pollution subject is completed online, whilst the Moisture Mapping and Mould Testing subjects are conducted on-campus in Melbourne.

What support will I receive during my training?

You will have access to a tutor for the duration of the subject (14 weeks). This is largely self directed - you may initiate contact as the need arises. Some students choose to contact their tutor on a regular basis, whilst other students only make contact when they submit their assessments.

Are there any prerequisites to do the course?

You are required to be at least 18 years of age to study our courses. Apart from that, there are no prerequisites and we assume no previous knowledge in any field.

Can I do a subject out of interest?

Yes you can, however if you don't complete the assessments a Certificate will not be provided.

Do I need to buy equipment or books?

Manuals are provided in all subjects. In addition, DVDs are provided in the Air Pollution subject. These manuals along with the student learning guides, will provide an extensive list of useful websites which will significantly reduce the amount of texts required for the course. You will be required to purchase the ' Healthy Home Healthy Family " book and the " IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mould Remediation ". Students will be required to purchase a combined hygrothermometer and moisture meter. We recommend the GE Protimeter MMS2. We suggest that you do not purchase any equipment until you have attended the on-campus training.

How much homework is involved?

Students should set aside at least 8 hours of homework every week to complete each subject within 14 weeks. Please take this into consideration when enrolling.

I have not studied for many years. Will I be able to cope?

We attract mature age students many of whom have not studied for many years, or even decades. We have addressed this issue by providing you with a student handbook outlining what is required. The student handbook contains essential information on college policies and procedures, as well as how to write an essay and use the Harvard referencing system. Writing essays and referencing can be challenging the first time round, so students are free to discuss any concerns with their lecturer or tutor. We can give you examples of good essay writing and steer you in the right direction. With each subject you will be assigned a tutor with whom you can ask questions. Remember we are here to help you succeed!

Do I need computer skills?

This is an online course so you will need a computer to be able to access the course materials and to be able to communicate with your tutor. In addition you will be required to search the internet and submit reports as part of your assessments. If you are not familiar with how to use a computer, we suggest you do a course at a Tafe or Neighbourhood house before you enrol in the course.

Can I apply for credits for prior learning?

Students who have a background in mould testing may want to apply for an exemption. Download the RPL form here and send it in along with your documentation and $250 fee. This is non-refundable regardless of the outcome.
