You can complete the performance tasks via a Zoom session with your Health Courses Australia Trainer, to use this option you will have to complete the performance tasks one unit at a time, as each unit will require one session with the trainer. This must be pre-booked with the trainer at mutually convenient time. Health Courses Australia pays the Trainers, who are also independent counsellors, for each of these zoom sessions. One zoom session per unit is included as part of the course fees. So it is very important that students feel that they are completely prepared to do them prior to booking in a session. If the student does not get marked competent in 1 session per unit, the student will have to pay session fee of $75.00 for any additional sessions per unit, you first session is free and included as part of your course fees. Contact [email protected] if you are interested in utilizing this option for more details.
Do them together in a cluster of 4-5 units at a time with an approved third-party assessor.
Do them right after the theory assessments if it works for you with an approved third-party assessor.
