  • E- Classrooms:- Also referred to as Webinars. Hope Training College of Australia feels that it is important to keep engaged with the issue after learners have obtained some information through e-presentations. We have E-Classroom for the convenience of the students. The E-Classroom is a recorded video of a classroom trainer led presentation, where the learner has the option to pause or re-listen/watch if their presence of mind is not supported at any point or if they were unable to understand some themes during the face-to-face session. It has been observed that learners who have seen an online presentation prior to attending the session exhibit more engagement and interest in the subject. Hope Training College in Australia has experienced a significant good impact from this.

  • E-Books - Hope Training College of Australia has uploaded a digital copy of the learning guide to our web portal, giving the student greater studying freedom. The flip books may be read on learners' smart devices, such as phones, tablets, or laptops, allowing them to study whenever and anywhere they choose. Hope Training College of Australia also has the provision and will supply a physical copy of books upon request from a learner.

  • E-SIMULATED:- This part contains a large number of videos on role plays and other subject-related information. This segment prepares the learner for performance-based training by having them perform in a simulated setting, which helps them perform better when they go on Vocational Work Placement.


  • Knowledge Assessment:- Only one booklet will assist us in assessing your information gained during your online learning adventure. In addition, as evidence of your learning journey, your online learning activities are recorded under your profile. The evaluation booklet contains short and lengthy questions, as well as case studies, to measure your comprehension of the course and its subjects/units. 

  • Skill Assessment :- Hope Training College of Australia will examine learners' skills in the Simulation Lab and throughout their work placements. For the final result, our assessors will record the learner's outcome in relevant papers.
