Online Learning New Zealand

Wood Training now offers online delivery for a range of courses.

These online courses need to be completed on a computer or laptop and require an internet connection.

Every course will have a dedicated forum where users can ask for help of any kind. We appreciate that it might be a difficult transition for some users to move from face to face learning to an online course. If you would like to speak to a subject matter expert to discuss parts of the course content, this can be arranged by posting a question in the help forum.

Available courses

Our online courses come in a range of sizes depending on the amount of work required to complete the course material. Some courses will be longer because they require practical tasks to be completed on-job and evidence collected and submitted to our online platform. When you enrol in these courses you will be sent a confirmation email that tells you the date that you will lose access to the course.

  • Bite sized courses: These courses will take you 1-4 hours to complete depending on current knowledge and reading ability. All these courses will have a short quiz at the end to test your knowledge of the content. Once you get 100% on the quiz, you have completed the course. 

    Available courses: Asbestos Awareness, Mercury Awareness and Silicosis Awareness.

  • Short courses: These courses will take less than 10 hours to complete allowing people time to work at their own pace, depending on current knowledge and reading ability. Assessment type: Short quizzes to test your knowledge on the content and an assessment. Once you pass the quiz and the evidence you submit for the assessment has been reviewed by a tutor, you will have completed the course.
