Do we recognise prior learning of an individual?

Yes, however the trainee must produce documentation of competency and maybe required to undergo practical demonstrations and complete written work to be eligible for cross-creditation.

What is the ratio of being in and outside the classroom?

Depending on the course, trainees will spend at least 50% of their time in a classroom, while the remainder of the course will be conducted either on the scaffolding tower for working at heights course, our customised entry and exit container for the confined spaces or the practical assessment for our forklift course.

Is there room to safely park my vehicle at your premises?

Absolutely. Once you enter the Tana Training yard there’s plenty of onsite parking space available along the wooden fence.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring a pen, note book and highlighter. For practical assessments and training please ensure appropriate steel capped boots and hi-vis are worn when using machinery, vehicles, plant and/or equipment. We will supply course materials and the equipment needed for practical assessments and if needed hi vis vests (which will be collected at the end of each day). Tea and coffee will be provided.
