3-Month Traineeship Program - Structural Engineer
"The course provides you with knowledge and skill about Australian residential dwelling design that I feel would require 5 years of experience to gain within a very short period of time which has been made possible by our very knowledgeable course trainer, Moly, by delivering the course very professionally and with her heart in an exceptionally detailed manner. As a student enrolled in the Design of Single Storey Dwelling Course, I feel the course not only clearly explains about the basics of structural engineering design of single-storey designing but also teaches you to tackle the real-life complications that will be experienced by you in your future workplace. The tricks that Moly teaches in this course will make you more effective and productive, which will enhance your performance at the workplace and help you stand out."

"The Single Storey Design Course has been a valuable learning experience for me. It covered all the fundamentals of the structural design of single-storey residential buildings including both theoretical and practical aspects of engineering. Moly delivered the course in an exceptionally detailed manner and was generous in sharing her knowledge and experiences in the local industry. She has been supportive throughout the course and was patient to answer all our questions. I enjoyed the whole learning experience and I’m grateful to meet wonderful people in the process."

"An insightful learning experience executed flawlessly by our course trainer Moly. "Her expertise in structural engineering designing was evident throughout training as she provided material that was familiar yet highlighted common real-life problems associated with designs. "Her extensive knowledge and exposure to all these challenges presented me with a different perspective of tackling single storey dwelling designs. I thoroughly enjoyed my involvement and would highly recommend this advantageous single storey dwelling design course and Learnpedia as the best Structural Engineering Institute in Australia."

Lasantha - VIC

3-Month Traineeship Program - Structural Engineer
"I was a complete beginner in design and drafting as per Australian standards. LearnPedia's Internship changed that. I got hands-on experience, learning from the ground up - from roofing to footings. The course was clear, engaging, and practical, far exceeding my expectations. Our instructor Moly was a standout, making complex topics easy and practical. Her friendly, experienced teaching made a huge difference. I also got to use key tools like Structural Toolkit and SpaceGASS, boosting my confidence. This program isn't just theory. It's about real-world skills, making me job-ready. Now, I'm skilled in using Australian standards and codes, ready to tackle real projects. If you're new to this field, I highly recommend LearnPedia. It's a game-changer!"

"Having recently finished my degree and never got a chance of working on any real-life projects after graduated. This course had provided the knowledge and skills that able to fill the gap between the fresh graduate structural engineer and the workplace. The contents of the course were well organized and explained. She also shared some of her work experiences during the course. I would highly recommend anyone with the same issue as me to take this course."

Arsalan - WA

3-Month Traineeship Program - Structural Engineer
"The content was very good, organised and well explained. I specifically like the way in which Moly tries to explain the reason behind various aspects rather than just following code provisions. This has helped me to put some strain in my brain and think of the probable reasons. She is very friendly, enjoys teaching and has a lot of patience to re-explain topics which are confusing. For a person like me who has newly migrated to Australia and is new to timber construction, this course would help a lot. I enjoyed a lot participating in this course."

Maryam - ACT

3-Month Traineeship Program - Structural Engineer

"The experience and knowledge gained from this course were above all expectations. The course was well structured and detailed. The steps created to design a single storey were clear and reinforced throughout the course.  The most impressive part of the course was the ability of the trainer to tie together the construction and design knowledge. She was able to provide insightful details about common designing mistakes that inexperienced engineers can make because of the lack of knowledge about common construction materials and architectural limitations."
