I had the best time doing my Certificate with ARC training. It was awesome how I could choose my electives – it meant that I could study what really interested me. The trainers were really great too.
I did my certificate through ARC’s digital classes because as a stay at home mum, it really fit into my lifestyle. I was able to study when I wanted, where I wanted. I honestly don’t think I would have been able to get my qualification if it wasn’t for online classes.
Students will be provided the following support services:
- LLN support

- Referral to personal counselling.
