Course Outline & Structure

Inspire Education has adopted a “clustered” approach for all of our Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety courses. This means we have divided our courses into just three workbooks: Safety Culture; Safety Management Systems; and Safety in Action (instead of 10 separate units). This means you will have only four workbooks to submit to complete your course! By using this “holistic” approach our students are able to study at a good pace because information is not duplicated.

Nominal Hours:  There are a total of 312 nominal hours for this course. This equals approximately 6 hours of study per week for students in the 12 months online course, however you may work at your own pace and complete your course faster if you’d like!

Assessment Methods:  Assessment is conducted using a combination of written questions, case studies, and projects to give you maximum opportunity to develop your knowledge in workplace health and safety.
