Frequently Asked Questions

How much homework will I be expected to do during my travel course?

SIT30216 Certificate III in Travel – full-time course
Training and assessment within our full-time travel course is completed face-to-face within the classroom (2 days per week). In addition to scheduled classes you will also be required to complete a small amount of homework (approximately 4 – 5 hours per week).

SIT30216 Certificate III in Travel – part-time course option
Training delivery for the part-time travel course is completed face-to-face within the classroom. However you will then be required to complete the majority of your assignments and assessment tasks as homework (this will require you to spend approximately 7 – 8 hours per week on completing set homework tasks).

Does the travel course include scary exams?

Our travel and tourism course is highly practical and hands-on. Each unit includes a small number of assessment tasks which will involve you completing a range of relevant and interesting practical exercises. Your trainer will assist and support you whilst you complete these tasks. So, no there are no scary or stressful exams to be worried about!

Am I eligible to get Government Funding for the travel course?

Our SIT30216 Certificate III in Travel is approved for government subsidised training, so you may only have to pay a small portion of the course fee (whilst the government pays the rest).

If you are unsure, call us and one of our team will be able to clarify this with you over the phone – it will only take a minute.
