I’m interested in a particular course but don’t meet the pre-requisites. Can I still take the course?

Capital Training Institute will always give students, wanting to enrol for a course, the opportunity to discuss how they might do so. All you have to do is to arrange to meet with the CTI Training Manager. This is when you can discuss how you might be able to meet the pre-requisites. An example of this is where a student enrols in a qualification package. In this case the student undertakes an entry level or lower qualification. On successful completion, the student has met the pre-requisites for the course they wish to undertake.

I’m a school leaver/I have no formal qualifications. Am I eligible to take a CTI course?

School leavers are welcome to apply to study with Capital Training Institute. All school leaver courses are set up to provide students with the best opportunity of successfully completion. This includes:

  • Industry experienced and qualified trainers/teachers
  • Plenty of class room time for face to face learning
  • Catch up classes if you miss a class
  • Tutorials (discussion groups) with small groups of students and a trainer/teacher
  • Hard copy resources and access to online resources

 
Many students do not have formal qualifications. In this case, the student could be given the opportunity to successfully complete their course by:

  • Using their current job as evidence of their ability or skill
  • Using previous jobs or experience as evidence of their ability or skill
  • Doing research and study as part of the course
  • Attending catch up classes and/or tutorials
  • Having one on one meetings with the trainer/teacher
I have work or other commitments. What if I don’t have much time to study?

Most students will have other commitments, and the training programs provided by Capital Training Institute take this into account.
Capital Training Institute holds classes that are well paced and with plenty of opportunities to obtain help from the trainer or teacher. Even with work or other commitments, students will need to have some study time. The Capital Training Institute program allows for students to have class time which is not too long yet allows for complete coverage of the topic and undertake in class work. Homework or out of class study, is able to be done at the students own pace and still be ready for the next class. Students have access to all the necessary resources, so that time is not wasted searching for information.
Capital Training Institute students might be able to use their job, and the work they do, as evidence for the course they are doing.

  1. One-on-one training. Typically this is when a student requires a specific skill to be trained and assessed e.g. on the job trade or business skills.
  2. Group training. An example of this is when an employer has the facilities for specific training to be delivered to a number of workers from that workplace.

RPL involves CTI undertaking an assessment of each individual who applies to do a qualification. This will help determine the extent to which that individual’s previous learning is equivalent to the learning outcomes of the components of the qualification they have applied for.
