Tutors are free to vary and alter course materials to suit the needs of the group they are working with. Equally the timing of how the course is delivered is flexible and Tutors may wish to deliver individual units over an extended time frame to reflect the circumstances of those they are working with. Please note completion of Unit 10 is compulsory for those seeking credit rating.

Tutors should ensure that, prior to delivering a course, all materials, venue, administrative and financial requirements are in place for successful delivery.


In order to remain a registered tutor and be eligible to deliver credit rated courses tutors must comply with the following requirements.

  • Deliver a minimum of 1 full Part 1 course or short courses equivalent to at least 2 units within a 2 year period.


  • Where this is not possible tutors will be able to attend a 1 day refresher session in order to maintain registration.
