17 Example Projects: Tourism
Purpose: Baristas the world over recognise the unit SITHFAB012B - Prepare and serve espresso coffee and the highly regarded Bruno’s Barista RTO is much desired by employers. They have developed a new online course specifically for NBN users and have recruited their first group from around Australia. Process: The trainers demonstrate the process using live streaming and learners in turn practice their skills and receive live feedback from the trainers. The sessions are recorded for review. The second and final session includes an assessment conducted in collaboration with a local coffee house. Payoff Employers are confident that certificate holders are proficient and learners are confident in their skills and have the opportunity to learn from outstanding baristas/teachers.

18 Example Projects: Mining
Purpose: A mining company contracts the local RTO to provide training in OHS and driving in the mines as part of the pre-employment training and recruitment process. RII09 - Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package Process: The RTO is based on the mine site where they use a high end virtual reality simulator for learning. Participants from 3 of the State 1 NBN sites use the top speed access from their ISPs to access the training. Payoff Mining companies can establish suitability of new recruits without expensive face to face training. Participants get a taste of work in the mines and can establish their interest and gain a certificate of attainment and connections with likely employers.
