The Victorian Auslan Training Consortium will begin offering Australian Sign Language (Auslan) courses from July this year.
The Certificate II and Diploma courses will be offered at Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE (NMIT) from Semester Two.
Enrolments for the courses are now open through NMIT, with enrolments for Certificate III and IV to open in early 2014.
The courses were developed after extensive consultation with the deaf and hard of hearing community and an independent review.
The training will be delivered in metropolitan and regional areas face-to-face and using communications technology to make sure all students have access to flexible and improved Auslan training.
The courses are being offered by the Victorian Auslan Training Consortium - led by Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE ( NMIT) in partnership with the Victorian Deaf Society (VicDeaf) and La Trobe University.
