Online or Remote Learning

Online or Remote Learning is the term used for study undertaken by correspondence or externally of a course venue.

Theory components of a course can be completed externally of the classroom, either Online or by Remote Learning.

If completing the theory components Online you will receive electronic copies of Learner’s Guides and Assignments by email.

Hard copies of Learner’s Guides and Assignments are provided also.

Studying Online or by Remote Learning means students can learn at their own pace – at home or on board a vessel, however, some components require compulsory attendance, these include:

  • Elements of Shipboard Safety
  • written assessments
  • on board and practical assessments

On board assessments are conducted on our 17 m training vessel Delphinus.

Online or Remote Learners need to be self-motivated, disciplined and have time to allocate to regular study. Experience with self-paced learning is an advantage.

Online or Remote Learning students can attend any relevant scheduled course/s during their period of enrolment.

Assessments may be sat in the classroom with a scheduled course or at our office in Geelong by arrangement.

If assistance with any part of the course is required, students can contact the office and arrange to speak to an instructor. Questions can be discussed over the phone, by email, or, if required, tuition can be arranged.

Full fee paying Online or Remote Learning students are given 12 months from enrolment to successfully complete all course requirements.
