Download Brochure

The prominence of WH&S as an indicator of workplace welfare and productivity makes it a crucial strategic consideration for every organisation in the country. The vocational skills training articulated by the Certificate of Work Health & Safety - the informed application of relevant legislation, the identification of workplace hazards, risk assessment, emergency procedures, and workplace monitoring - remains in high demand, and entails the demonstration of competencies that go beyond their own immediate context.

Description

Course Structure

The Certificate IV in Work 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 WH&S professional.

Participants have the option of undertaking this course online, using Upskilled's customised Learning Management System. 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.
