What's new

AIBT has recently adjusted its delivery modes to adapt to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic both in Australia and worldwide. Through these new arrangements, students can start or continue their studies via eLearning, online live stream, face-to-face classes, or a combination of all three. These new study arrangements can allow students to study at their own pace and have access to consultations and guidance from their trainer, wherever they are located.

AIBT's promotions are tailored to each market. Students can find the right course at the right price.

The college guarantees vocational placement for students. Vocational placement is an essential component of many qualifications, as it consolidates the students' knowledge within a real-world environment, applying theory to practice.
