The Diploma of Work Health and Safety (WHS) is suitable for people who coordinate and maintain the WHS program in an organisation. It reflects the role of practitioners who apply a substantial knowledge base and well-developed skills in a wide variety of WHS contexts.
For organisations needing a number of employees to be trained, we can customise the course to include your company’s policies, procedures and workplace case studies. This makes the training highly relevant to your workforce and helps you establish and promote a culture of a safe working environment. Training can be conducted at your site in the Illawarra, Sydney or interstate, or students can join one of our classes in beautiful Kiama, 30 minutes south of Wollongong. Contact us if you are in a regional area and would like us to deliver to your workplace.
