2017 VET Information

The 2017 course handbook is now available on our website http://training.vetnetwork.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Course-Handbook-WEB-2017-1.pdf

This year based on feedback, we have incorporated more course information into the handbook so this can be used as a complete tool for students who are considering VET. Due to this change and the increase in the size of the booklet, we won’t be printing copies off to give to schools to pass onto students as we have done in the past but rather would like them to be directed to the online link where they can download the latest copy, this will ensure students are accessing the most current information on courses.   Individual information sheets are also available on our website http://training.vetnetwork.org.au/2017-courses/, with the exception of a few that are in the process of being negotiated. If you cannot find the information you are looking for please contact Mrs Povey VETnetwork have a number of new and exciting courses on offer in 2017, some of which include:
