Webinars on-demand - $395 for the first person, then standard fees per person thereafter.
If our public webinar session days and times don't suit you or your commitments, we offer the ability (subject to trainer availability) to schedule a course that suits you - night, day, weekend - its up to you to set the time.
PLEASE NOTE: Webinars on-demand, are NOT one-on-one sessions. We reserve the right to add additional students to the course, once YOU have selected the date and time of the session.
The Victorian Commission for Gambling & Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) requires that new Licensees and Nominees MUST complete New Entrant Training before being granted a Liquor Licence. LiqCon assisted in the development of the original New Entrant Training course, and naturally authoured Achieve Liquor Licensing Knowledge and delivers New Entrant Training throughout Victoria.
The NOMINAL delivery hours for this course is 6 hours. This includes some reading time. We have listed times here that we believe to closer represent the real hours that participants will be in the classroom (including webinars).
It is a requirement of this program that all attendees have a good understanding of speaking, listening and writing in English. We have an obligation to the VCGLR to ensure that the enrolled person is assessed and not a family member who has translated. For this reason, family members will not be permitted to attend to "assist". If you feel you do not meet these language guidelines, please contact us to arrange a session with an interpreter at one of our training sessions.
We also offer courses in Mandarin.
Country or interstate attendees
Don't waste hours in your car and pay for overnight accommodation. Why not attend one of our Webinars? These interactive internet based sessions include all of the materials. You interact with other students and you can ask questions in exactly the same manner as normal face-to-face sessions, but with only a small number of students.
Additionally, for additional fees - we can provide one-on-one or small group WEBINAR training at a time that suits YOU!
