Due to COVID-19 all WHTA Advanced Course are moving to LIVE ONLINE webinar format until at least February 2021.
Courses with practical components will have the practical sessions provided by WHTA approved Tutors in each capital city.
NEW COURSE DURATIONS FOR ONLINE
As teaching the course online takes longer than face-to-face many of the courses have a REVISED DURATION for the ONLINE FORMAT.
WHTA has always prided itself on making courses as cost effective as possible. Whilst obviously an online course saves costs in terms of a course venue, after much consideration we have decided that Advanced course fees will however remain the same. This is due to the increased time taken to teach the course, increased administration costs to organise printing and postage of manuals, payment to WHTA tutors in each state for the practicals, as well as provision of the online webinar portal.
Hopefully face to face courses will recommence in 2021. At which time courses will return to their normal duration.
