Every course offered by Insight Training is different, as are the individual needs of our students. Some will complete their course within a matter of months, and others will take a little longer due to other commitments. It all depends on the course, which includes theoretical and practical work, and the student’s ability to commit to it.
However long it takes to complete a course, rest assured you will have the skills and knowledge to support your successful career in community services.
Courses at Insight Training consist of learning theoretical knowledge and practical skills studied in a classroom or online (or a mix of both). This is accompanied by a work placement component where students demonstrate their ability to perform those skills over a set number of hours in a real work environment.
Most courses consist of a set number of core units (mandatory) and elective units (personal choice) that each student must pass successfully before completing their work placement.
The type and quantity of units differ with each course.
To understand more about the number of elective units in a particular course, please select the individual course page and refer to the ‘Course description’ section.
