Remote Training At PEER

TRANSITION TO REMOTE TRAINING WITH PEER

PEER has recently implemented remotely delivered training to many of our apprentices. The introduction of remote training provides apprentices with greater flexibility to complete theory components of their apprenticeship training whilst receiving the same level of training and support for those that attend PEER’s trade training centre.

Each remote training class is led by a dedicated trainer who supports and coaches the students remotely through their theory components of training with practical components conducted later in the year. Apprentices are invited to join a class via Microsoft Teams and connect with their trainer. Trainers will be available online to answer questions and support students through their learning. Currently, we have 400 students actively participating in remote training with PEER.

ON CAMPUS OR REMOTE DELIVERY.
IT’S YOUR CHOICE.

Where apprentices don’t have access to a laptop or data, they will be able to continue their training on site at the PEER trade training centre at Albert Park.

PEER will continue to provide resources and assistance for students and apprentices who engage in remote training and ensure they are tracking progress and remain on target for completion.

Watch the short video below to find out how PEER delivers remote training.

Students will also need regular access to a computer or laptop with internet connection and a web-based email address (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo). Their trainer will send them an email invitation to join the online class. From there, your apprentice will be able to complete their training online with support and assistance from their trainer.

HOW DO I TRANSFER MY APPRENTICE TO PEER FOR TRADE SCHOOL?

If your apprentice is under a contract of training and is currently completing a qualification through another training provider, you can transfer your apprentice to PEER to complete the qualification. PEER will require evidence of any previous study and a copy of your apprentice’s Statement of Attainment to determine the units of competency he/she could be granted credit for. This will ensure he/she does not have to repeat any subjects again.

TO TRANSFER TO PEER FOR TRADE SCHOOL:

1. You and your apprentice will need to complete a ‘Transfer to New RTO’ Form.

2. This form will need to be provided to PEER to authorise the transfer, PEER will need to sign off on ‘New RTO representative signature’ in section 3.

3. Once PEER has returned the form back to you, you will need to submit the form to:

Post:Regulation and Contract Management GPO Box 320, Adelaide SA 5001
:dsd.tamfax@sa.gov.au

4. Once you appear on the government database, PEER will contact you to arrange:

"I was good at Maths, so I was drawn to an Electrical Apprenticeship. PEER offer really good job security and experience because they send you to different host employers and we gain a variety of experience which you probably wouldn't get with a direct employer."
