The TAFE website states students should have NSW School Certificate (or equivalent). However we run this course in 2 stages. Stage 1 is covered in our certificate 2 or 3, stage 2 assumes you have already completed stage 1

  1. Students entering this course should have completed a certificate 2 in IT or equivalent. We recommend the certificate 3 software applications course.
  2. Students undertaking this course should have private (ie: external to TAFE) access to computer hardware and software similar to that provided in class. Students may be given tasks to complete outside of class hours to supplement their learning.
  3. In addition to a consumables budget of $60, students should allow a total textbook budget of approximately $400, as certain study streams may require the purchase of recommended texts.
  4. The course will be delivered using an integrated approach; rather than studying on a module by module basis, students will work in a project-oriented environment.
