How We Work

APT provide flexible training and an ongoing framework to build-on or formalise your existing skills and knowledge. In our courses, the use of advanced simulation and real world practices ensure optimal outcomes.

APT deliver training in a friendly, relaxed and comfortable learning and assessment environment. You can be assured that it’s to the best of our ability to support any special needs/requirements you may have with your learning.

Course Information

Training and assessment is usually completed at the APT Training Centre at Toronto NSW, however, the course can be delivered at your own workplace if a full class is enrolled.

In such circumstances, we bring the complete service to you including training simulations and fluid power equipment.

Course Assessment

Your trainer and assessor will clearly explain the assessment process to you and support you where necessary to ensure you have a full understanding of the process prior to commencing.

Some methods used to assess your competence include written questionnaires, verbal questions, third party reports, self-assessment, log books or work journals, verified CV, workbook activities and certificate recognition of prior learning.
