Public cash pays for financial adviser ‘four-day’ diploma | So it's come to this | Scoop.it
THE NSW, Victorian and federal governments have spent millions of dollars of taxpayer funds training financial advisers to obtain diplomas, which in some cases can be completed with the equivalent of four days’ work.
CBERZHSA's insight:
From the student handbook... Monarch’s People "All Monarch Institute’s instructors have both extensive industry and teaching experience. It has recruited some of the best and brightest senior lecturers from RMIT, the University of Melbourne" La Trobe University and the AGSM..." Wonder if the universities are aware???

Cert IV in 12 evenings! What a joke

Cert IV in 12 evenings! What a joke | So it's come to this | Scoop.it

Only $29 for a Certificate IV in Frontline Management! Develop Skills for Leadership, Project Management, Promoting Teamwork, Workplace Strategy, Organisation, Recruiting and More. Six Week Course with Classes Two Nights a Week at Oakleigh Campus.

CBERZHSA's insight:

When will regulators stamp this stuff out? Forget about the price. That's just a carrot. The issue is 2 nights over six weeks. 12 sessions probably between 2-3 hours per session. 24-36 hours of 'training'. A joke.

So let me get this straight: Upon completion of my Cert IV I get a job interview ( note no guarantee of job assuming job exists); The course takes four weeks to complete (probably explains why I didn't get the job); And the course is free ( explains why it took only four weeks and only a guaranteed job interview) Get what you pay for!

CBERZHSA's insight:

• A laptop for you to keep so you can study from home on days you can’t make it to class. 
• Group lunch that is paid for by the college. 
• Travel costs reimbursed (public transport) to/from the college. 
• Additional optional catch up days. 
• An Ipad on Graduation as a Graduation gift!


All FREE,FREE,FREE! Oh and by the way we will throw in some training. 


So now the tactic is not to offer incentives at the start but to offer them at the end. Not inducements but 'graduation gifts'. No, really?

CBERZHSA's insight:

Note that Civil Construction III is nominally 1000+ hrs @ $9.00/hr paid by the government to deliver. Is this $9000 worth of training? WILL YOU BE SAFE'? How long is the course. How much time do you get on each machine? Are they nationally recognises qualifications? These machines have allocated 600-700 funded hours to train and assess you @ $9.00/hr to train you. Same old story. You get what you pay for.

Cradle to grave training. From retail Childcare (though still  waiting for the wholesale option as probably cheaper) through to funeral care.

Better still conducted on the eighth floor in some office space in Collins Street and not at the steps of Melbourne Uni as the images would suggest.
