A Technical Certificate is a theory based qualification, which provides you with the theoretical knowledge in your chosen area of study. To complete the technical certificate you will need to attend a local College that teaches the particular qualification that has been identified as the most suitable to meet both your and your employer's needs, and that is identified in your apprenticeship framework.
Depending on your chosen qualification, you will be released by your employer to attend College on a day release basis. The Technical Certificate will be delivered in a classroom environment supplemented by practical sessions in a workshop.
The Technical Certificate will be unit based and the delivery strategy will be determined by the College you will be attending. For example the units may be taught in a specific order one after the other, or several units may be taught in at the same time.
