The course is offered in association with North Coast TAFE, runs for 24 months and includes a work placement. What will that set you back? $3690 — though if you pay up front before the end of February you’ll receive 20 per cent ($738) off. Alternatively, you can pay $100 up front and then $49.86 a week for 18 months, though that will cost you close to $4000 overall.
