This certificate is delivered through:
- on-the-job training
- interactive classes for theory-based subjects
- hands-on practical-based workshops
- online learning resources.
This certificate involves attending six one-week blocks over a twelve month period, while working full-time as a trainee. Trainees will get on-the-job experience in your workplace at either a public or private dental clinic, and off-the-job training at RMIT.
Off-the-job training is delivered through a combination of on- and off-campus study, and is supported by self-paced learning materials.
You will be expected to comply with dress code and workplace health safety procedures for all classes, practical sessions and clinical sessions.
During your studies you will need to complete two workplace assessments conducted at the workplace. You will also be expected to demonstrate competency on the practical component of the curriculum and complete the HLTDEN001 Clinical Logbook.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
