Self-paced online learning

MRWED uses the online learning platform “aNewSpring” to host and coordinate training and assessment activities. Self-paced online students will navigate through an integrated program of study that combines course content, learning activities, reinforcement tasks, extension exercises, as well as both formative, and summative assessments.

All participants will have access to support from the MRWED Learner Success Team (LST) along with structured webinar-based tutorials, optional scheduled Facilitator-led Zoom sessions, and a comprehensive suite of resources with which to read, view, reflect and share.

Optional Zoom sessions

MRWED has combined the Zoom webinar platform with our popular self-paced online program to create a facilitator-led, online learning experience via Zoom! This option continues to use the self-paced online learning platform to host and coordinate training and assessment activities, whilst also adding an extra level of support via scheduled Zoom sessions.

During these live, facilitator-led sessions, a MRWED Learning Leader will introduce students to critical course content, in a way that often mimics the dynamic interactions of our face-to-face training. They will also provide additional coaching and support to learners to aid in the preparation of projects and completion of other assessment activities.

PRICE: $3300

The MRWED online self-paced journey has clustered units to mirror the face-to-face journey. However, it has been designed to be completed as a unit-by-unit experience. This creates greater flexibility for learners and will allow them to complete single units within a cluster, in the event they receive credit transfers and/or successful RPL.

*Alternative electives may be available via RPL and self-paced online learning. Please contact us on 1800 287 246 if there is a specific elective option you would like to complete as part of your Learning Journey. 

Access to the MRWED online platform will be provided for up to 12 months to complete this program.

MRWED’s decisions about the duration of the delivery of this qualification take into account the candidates’ likelihood of successfully achieving the learning outcomes and ensure that the integrity of the qualification outcomes is maintained. MRWED acknowledges that the amount of training provided by us is only part of the overall volume of learning and relates primarily to formal activities including classes and other extension tasks.

The amount of training allocated for this qualification is based on the prior experience of each participant. Learners who have a lot of relevant prior experience may have the ability to complete the qualification in a shorter timeframe. However, those who are new to the profession will often take a longer time frame to complete and will be supported by our dedicated Learner Success team throughout their journey. Learners should expect a duration between six and twelve months to meet the requirements of TAE40122, which is consistent with the AQF volume of learning indicators for a Certificate IV qualification. MRWED will provide a 12 month enrolment duration to complete the qualification.
