The Diploma of Occupational Health & Safety is delivered by expert trainers in 7 x full day workshops scheduled across 9 months of this 12 month program. This approach allows students sufficient time between and after workshop completion to undertake self-directed learning assignments and out-of-class assessment. Workshops engage participants in active discussion, problem-solving exercises, networking opportunities, and presentations related to identifying and performing the key tasks of a contemporary OH&S professional.
Students can also choose to undertake the course online. Upskilled uses an online Learning Management System to manage the delivery, assessment and learning resources. The online program is conducted over a 12 month period through a blended learning approach of distance and online.
