The Learning and Assessment Journey

See the bottom of this page for a detailed description of the Learning and Assessment journey for MRWED Students.

Volume of Learning

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 are 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 TAE40116, which is consistent with the AQF volume of learning indicators for a Certificate IV qualification.

Our published public schedules represent the instructor-led “contact time” for candidates choosing a fully face-to-face learning pathway. However, additional reading, research, participation in webinars, project work and assessment activities may be required over the duration of their study to successfully complete the qualification.
