    I think all organisations and TAFEs will vary. I've been going through Tafe and we don't even get taught the bare minimum. There is so much assumed knowledge and self directed learning. It's made it really hard going into it with no prior experience.
    Class size is 25.. so not small at all.

    We actually got a medication CD to use on the computer which has all the calculations we need to know. You will probably get one through tafe as well.

    Another thought .. you can download medication calculation apps on your phone.
    Might be worth doing so for a bit of practice?

    Agree they all really vary...I go to a private RTO in Melb and we have small class sizes of around ten people and I feel we get taught well and in depth...I only chose this place as they offered the course two days per week and that is what worked for me

    Your class sounds awesome! I wish mine was more like that.

    Which private provider do you use in Melb? The part time course through HealthTrain (in both edithvale and frankston) is part time but over 2.5yrs! Chisholm only has it full time for 18mths.
    It would be nice to find somewhere that has mid year intake as we could be moving later towards the end of the year and i've got no idea which area we will be going to. my eldest will also be starting school next year so to get him settled first would be something off my shoulders.

    Hi Giggle, do you mind if I ask which provider you are going with for your diploma? I'm looking into healthskills blackburn campus as they offer part time 2 days a week during school hours which hopefully works out quite well for me.
