  1. Many course providers offer ‘cookie cutter’ one size fits all courses based on a mass production model that does not allow for individual tailoring.
  2. Traditional training with a TAFE type course is a one schedule for all, rigid semester system that may not be conducive to your timeframe.
  3. Some employers prefer to employ students who have studied with private RTOs rather than TAFEs and other publicly funded RTOs because they know you will be work ready; employers also value that there will be no need for wasting time with lengthy workplace induction programs, as a CAL course will have you hit the ground running.
  4. Large course providers are virtually a training supermarket. They often do not offer facilitators with specialist knowledge in course fields. You may be chatting in forums with school leavers or international students who are not on your wavelength and don’t share your level or experience or maturity.
  5. Beware of courses that do not have a legitimate course identifier number, or who use these expressions; ‘Like a Diploma, ‘Based on a Diploma, ‘the same as a Diploma’, or ‘a Partial course’. These courses are not worth the paper they are printed on and will not be recognised in the workforce.
  6. Check that the company or individual providing the training is a Registered Training Organisation with a TOID number. (CAL’s TOID no. is 22228).
  7. Ensure your course provider is one that knows the current curriculum and is up to date with changes in PM related regulations, codes and legislation. Content and guidelines are constantly changing and courses must be updated regularly to stay relevant to your job and the market. Eg: CAL recently included updates to reflect the changes to Fair Work Australia contract legislation, the recent ISO review and emerging project governance issues.
