A list of frequently asked questions. Contact us if you require any additional informations

What are the technical requirements to participate in the course? i.e. do I need a webcam, microphone, etc?

The course will be run entirely online via a cloud-based platform called Cahoot which can be accessed via computer, tablet or phone. Participants will simply need to have a working Internet connection and a computer, tablet or phone with sound to access the course. They will not be required to download any software and will not require any hardware like a webcam or microphone.

How long will the course take?

The entire course will run over eight weeks (six modules over six weeks plus another two weeks to finish the final assignment). It is expected that participants will take about 40 hours to finish the entire course. This includes attendance at live webinars and completion of all learning activities.

Must a participant complete and pass all modules in order to finish the course?

Yes, it is a requirement for participants to complete all modules and pass all learning activities, including the final assessment. A professional certificate will be awarded upon successful completion.

How often will the courses be run?

The first intake will commence on 8 October 2018. Following this, we aim to run two to three intakes each year.

Can a participant sign up for only one or two modules?

Unfortunately no, the course must be completed in its entirety.

Will the course be delivered in other languages?

At the moment, no, but we will be looking at delivering the course in other languages in the near future.

Does someone have to have a prequalification of years’ experience before they can do the course?

No. If someone is on the pathway to becoming a Competent Person, then doing this course early will help them to better understand the JORC Code and its requirements.

Will current Competent Persons and industry practitioners be required to undertake this training before reporting?

It is not currently mandatory but it is highly recommended to raise the knowledge of the overall profession.
