Our courses are delivered via blended delivery methods, which means that they are comprised of
both online and face-to-face training and assessment.

Generally, practical training will be in our premises at the address showing on the contact page of
our website. Onsite training and assessment can be arranged, at your workplace, when a number of
students, working for the same organisation require training in the same or similar units. For
example, your team members, at a childcare centre all require first aid or CPR training one of our
highly skilled trainers can come to you. (minimum numbers apply, call us for details).

You can enrol by attending our office and completing an enrolment application form, a language,
literacy and numeracy form (if required for your chosen course) and by paying the relevant course
fees.

AWDI is committed to ensuring you receive training, assessment and support services
that meet your individual needs. To achieve this, we need to know what your needs are.
If at any point throughout your course you require any assistance or support please
discuss these needs with AWDI staff and we will do our best to help. If you have any
special needs, including language and literacy, learning, mobility, visual impairment or
hearing please notify staff as soon as possible, preferably at the start of your course, to
allow us to cater to your needs if possible. Information you tell us in relation to your needs
will remain confidential and only be used to support you.

AWDI courses are, in general, funded by the student or their employer (fee for service),
however, we are proud to be a Queensland state Government approved Skills Assure
Supplier and are able to offer some of our training courses, to eligible applicants that is
subsidised by the Qld Government’s Department of Education, Small Business and Training

(DESBT). Eligibility criteria are as follows. You must:
• be a Queensland resident
• be aged 15 years or over, and no longer at school (with the exception of VET in Schools
students) (please note that AWDI does not accept applicants for security training who are
under 18 years as a security license will not be issued to any person under the age of 18
years in Qld and it would be unethical of us to do so).
• be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including
humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on
the pathway to permanent residency
