    Relevant qualification

    Participants should hold a Certificate IV in Health and Safety or at a minimum are required to complete the core units from BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety.  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 program is designed based upon the work environment, experience within that environment is an acceptable point of entry.  In regards to the Diploma of Work Health and Safety, this may include but not limited to experience within a health & safety environment, or another closely related field, in a supervisory/management position. 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

  1. Do you have the external 12 month course available?

    Also my company will be paying for it, so how do We go about organising payment with scope training?

    • Hi Walter,

      Our training coordinator will contact you shortly to assist. Payments is easy and we are a preferred supplier and hold provider numbers for many large organisations.

      Thanks for your comment

  2. does this also applys to international students

    • Yes it does, however you have to make sure that you are not on a study visa, otherwise I believe you are limited to go through a CRICOS provider. The way I understand it is that if you are based overseas (international) then it’s fine, however if in Aus on a study visa, I don’t think so. It may be best a question answered through the government body- just to make sure
