Online Weed and Seed Course|AHCBIO203 Quick Overview:

Standard AHCBIO203 Online Weed and Seed Course:

The AHCBIO203 weed and seed course includes self-paced theory online on a learning platform. When the theory is completed, the learning platform asks for practical evidence to upload, such as completed third-party supervisor reports, photos, videos, lists, SDS, labels etc. This evidence provided must support that you have the skills in the performance part of the unit. Your assessor will then meet or contact you to verify the evidence or get you to do the tasks. If you do not have a workplace or area to practice this and no equipment your assessor will get you to do the tasks. Please contact the office if this is the case before enrolling. Depending on your location, there might be a fee for travel and accommodation.

The course can also be delivered face-to-face at any LT Training campus or workplace for at least five (5) students. Contact us for a quote.
