Blended Learning refers to a mixing of different learning environments. NTI employs traditional face to face training, on-line learning via our student portal, NIDA training equipment, Hampden Training Equipment and on-site workplace training. The ultimate aim of blended learning being to provide realistic practical opportunities for candidates and trainers to make learning independent, useful, sustainable and ever growing.
Face to Face
Face to face training is conducted at our main campus at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane as well as at our satellite campus’s at the Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne.

Workplace training involves an NTI trainer delivering the training at the candidate’s place of employment. NTI is flexible and works with the candidate and their employer to ensure training is delivered in a way, at a pace and to a timetable that suits all parties.
The object of a vocational placement is to allow the candidate to undertake vocational training and gain experience in a workplace environment. A vocational placement arrangement is appropriate for candidates who would not normally have regular access to a workplace environment. The placement is directly related to the specific units of competency of the qualification being undertaken. Vocational placements are hands-on practical work in a real work environment and are an assessable part of the course. For short placements (less than 240 hours per calendar year) a candidate should not be paid for the vocational placement - it is part of their training, not paid employment.
