OLGR has commenced a review of online RSA training. The purpose of the review is to find out if online training provides appropriate skills and knowledge for the industry, and whether it needs enhancing. Feedback will be used to determine the future direction for online training in NSW.
It is important that OLGR receives student feedback as part of the review. It would be appreciated if online RSA training providers could assist OLGR with the review by advising students of the availability of a short online survey. The student survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/S96FJR3. The survey will close on 7 June 2013.
