It is necessary for the prospective learner to complete an Enrolment Form at the earliest opportunity. By completing the Enrolment Form it does not bind the learner into any form of contract; however it is the first step of the enrolment process and other administrative functions commence from here.
Once the Enrolment Form has been received by NQET you will be contacted and arrangements made for an interview with the Managing Director of NQET to ascertain your needs and the needs of your organisation in relation to training and assessment. Interviews can be either face to face by telephone or email. This interview can be arranged at the time of enrolment or at another mutually convenient time.
During the interview with the Managing Director, NQET, you will be provided with a training schedule, a list of elective units and the structure of the course and assessment requirements will be explained.
NQET offers a variety of learning and assessment pathways to all participants. At the interview prospective participants will be provided the opportunity to request an Application for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) package.
