    Hi, I'm interested in the Cert 11 Electrotechnology course starting in February 2014. I have phoned up and given my details as 'my interest' in doing the course starting in Feb at Heidelberg. Can you please tell me whether I am guaranteed a place in this course? Also what are the full time hours/days, ie how many days per week and hours each day to attend - also what is the starting time and finishing time of each day to allow transport planning. thanks

    Hi Ross,   Did you leave your details with the ComputerSystems and Electrotechnology department?  If so they will certainly contact you next week. The course runs 5 days per week. I think the times are approximately 8.30-4.30. But a staff member will be able to confirm this when they return from holidays! ^LW
