Our Cert IV WHS course design uses a “clustered” approach. This means we have combined our course into just three workbooks: Safety Culture and Compliance; Safety Management Systems; and Safety in Action (instead of 10 separate units). This means you will have only three workbooks to submit to complete your course! By using this “holistic” approach our students are able to study at a good pace because learning and assessment tasks are not duplicated in multiple units.
