The online program provides full access to our customised online learning environment, MyUpskilled. The online program is conducted over a 12 month period and employs an approach that blends distance and online education in the management and delivery of learning resources.  MyUpskilled features, powerpoint resources, reading materials, discussion boards, forums, access to assessments, resources, videos and blogs.  Students receive regular training and assessment contact throughout the course.
