    Relevant qualification

    Ideally participants should hold a Certificate III in Health and Safety.  However there are a number of other accepted qualifications from industry areas such as Business and Management or high risk industries.  Many participants of this program are tertiary qualified professionals looking to migrate into a health and safety role.   If you would like to discuss your acceptance based upon your existing qualifications please contact our friendly team. 

  2. 2
    Work Experience

    Many students enter this qualification without holding existing qualifications. As the programs are designed based upon the work environment, experience within that environment is an acceptable point of entry.  In regards to the Certificate IV Work Health and Safety, this may include but not limited to experience within a health & safety environment, or another closely related field, this may be either as a team member, supervisor or leading hand. If you would like to discuss your acceptance based upon your existing experience please contact our friendly team.

We provide students with the ability to complete the Certificate IV Work Health and Safety over a one year period; however we find that the average time is between 3 to 6 months.  During that time there is a large variance in the amount of time each student spends working on the qualification.  Please contact our staff if you would like an estimate based upon your individual situation

  2. Hi,

  3. Good day,

    I would like to inquire about the Certificate IV Work Health & Safety BSB41415. I have about 14 years professional experience in HSE and have numerous qualifications (Diploma and certificate levels) from the UK and South Africa. I am currently completing a Msc from a UK university. I am moving out to Aus. by the end of year and would like to undertake this course through RPL. Can you please provide me some information regarding the costs of the course through RPL please.

    • Sure, we have sent some information across on both the Cert IV WHS and the RPL process. We normally commence with a bit of pre-qualification to ensure you would be a good candidate for RPL. Judging by your experience I think you should be fine, however this decision is made by a Health and Safety consultant. It’s pretty painless and can be performed from a CV etc. I have included the details in my email.

  4. Is it possible to study this course online from overseas?

    • Hi Lee, Yes you can study the BSB41415 qualification online from overseas. We have sent you en email with some more details. Looking forward to working with you.

  5. Hi,

    I have recently relocated here as a Permanent Resident and currently work as a Correctional Officer. I have reviewed the prospects of working as a WHS professional and have thus decided to enroll. Can you provide via mail the course structure, cost implication and duration? The plan is to use this as a compliment to my Lead External Auditor Certification ISO 9001.

    Furthermore, can you advise if there is any other information that may be of great benefit in this career pathway?

  6. Hi

    could you please send me the information for studying from overseas?

    thank you

    • Hi Jordan,
      We are getting information to you right away. The online course can be started at any time with up to 12 months to complete. Looking forward to working with you.

  7. Hi There

    I have 10 years plus experience in the H&S field with a BTec degree in Safety management. i would also like to see more information regarding the RPL route if possible?
    what would be the easiest, quickest and most cost effective method for me to follow to obtain this certificate?


    • Thanks Eugene,

      Glad the info was useful. RPL does have a bad rep, but for people with experience it should be a consideration. It’s essential to bust the myth that it’s easier attending a workshop than going through the recognition of prior learning process. RPL works really well and is the most efficient process for suitable candidates- thanks for raising the question.
