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."

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."

What are Blended Learning Online & Instructor-Lead Internship?

Are internships that are done online or remotely. You are placed with a company and have a supervisor that you report to. You are in contact with the supervisor/trainer via virtual methods such as email, instant messenger and LMS. Blended learning is the most effective and comprehensive form of training delivery. This facilitates a number of learning modes and styles which means that learners are more likely to get their needs met and be fully challenged in the learning process.

Is this ONLY industry-specific Internship in Australia for Structural Engineers based on Australian Standards (AS/NZS)?

ONLY customised Internship that is industry-specific in Australia for Structural Engineers developed by industry experts and based on Australian Standards (AS/NZS). LearnPedia, with the help of its Structural & Civil Engineering consultancy partner, has designed and developed this Internship to make sure you gain specific experience. Any old internship won't do. If you want a good job after graduating or arriving in Australia, you must get a useful internship, and this is it. In our Internship, you'll learn from projects broken down and explained to you to ensure you get an in-depth understanding of your projects' design steps and challenges. A useful internship will provide you with training, both classroom-style training and hands-on training. LearnPedia internship provides the work experience that helps students put their education into practice, develop and apply their skills, theories, and concepts learned in our online courses and give them a competitive advantage as they pursue a permanent position.

What is the coaching provided in the Blended Learning Online & Instructor-Lead Internship?

As part of your virtual internship, you will follow our online internship curriculum, which includes 3 group sessions with an assigned internship coach.
The Start Point Check-In: You'll be assigned two real-life projects to work on. As you design each stage of the project, you'll get to see the trainer designing and explaining the same stage of the design through Simulation and Interactive Training Videos. This gives you the opportunity to check your design and correct any inaccuracies and miscalculations before moving on to the next stage of the design.

The Midpoint Check-In: The Midpoint Check-In is an online conversation that will review your projects and assessments, as well as asking some guiding questions designed to create a dynamic interactive discussion about your internship thus far and steps to take to make the second half a success while planning for the program end and next steps.

The Final Check-In is an online group session designed to look at your experience with this internship to highlight skills gained, professional pathways, and best practices for future career management. At the end of the session, you will walk away with a Portfolio and a Professional Digital Certificate, noting key steps to take immediately and leveraging this experience for future success.

Why should I do a Blended Learning Online & Instructor-Lead Internship over a traditional on-site internship?

  • Throughout the internship, you'll design two real-life residential projects (additional to the two projects explained and designed throughout the course). You'll have access to trainer-led instructional step-by-step videos, how-to guides, and online tutorials to watch every design step and discuss the challenges of the internship projects. This means you get to see the designing process and the accurate methods of designing as well as checking your designs and highlighting where you have gone wrong and how to best rectify them. Video is a great way to communicate educational, informative, and critical design information effectively
