As a mature age student undertaking the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, I looked at a number of course providers to see which I thought would give me the best experience as I studied. From my first call to Monash Training and Professional Development to the completion of my course I was extremely impressed by the administrative staff and especially my trainer/assessor.
Our group had 3 face to face meetings before COVID-19 meant we had our remaining course by ZOOM. It was also a first for our trainer, Jeni Miles. As a group, with Jeni, we worked together to make sure the technology was an aid rather than a hindrance. This unexpected learning experience for all of us was a ground-breaking opportunity which we all appreciated.
The variety of backgrounds of my fellow students, the course content and our learning experiences made this an outstanding learning course which I am very pleased to recommend to people considering undertaking this program.
