How does training work?

New Hunter Business engage The Business Centre as a Registered Training Organisation to deliver an average of five-seven courses every six months according to the demand.

Face to Face courses takes place with participants attending in class training four days per week over a period of six weeks.

Flexible courses are predominantly self driven, participants are required to attend in class training 1 day per week over 7 weeks with additional one-on-one sessions.

Training is held at various locations in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley areas. New Hunter Business is very mindful of costs associated with travel these days, so we try very hard to locate the courses in areas which are convenient to the course participants.

What will I get out of NEIS training?

One of the key outcomes of NEIS training is a Cert IV in New Small Business or Cert III in Micro Business Operations . This is a nationally recognised and fully accredited qualification.

During training you will be assisted in the development of your business plan which is used to determine your approval for the 12 month NEIS program. Participants also enjoyed a social and relaxed training atmosphere, where they are given the opportunity to learn with a diverse group of individuals.

Training Facilities

We provide clean, safe, well appointed facilities at all our training locations. All our rooms are air conditioned and complimentary refreshments are available for the use of all students.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Prospective NEIS participants may be exempt from part, or all, of the NEIS training because they possess the necessary competencies as a result of work or life experiences, previous training or qualifications (RPL or credit transfer).

RPL will be accessed by the Registered Training Organisation and may include additional costs not covered by New Hunter Business or the NEIS Program.

We encourage all participants to undertake the training as we believe the positive interactions between participants is a major factor in the success of the program.

If a prospective NEIS participant has previously completed NEIS training and obtained their certificate, they do not need to undertake the training again, but will be required to submit an up to date appropriate business plan for approval.

Don't just take our word for it

"I would like to say THANKS and to future students study hard, reach higher than you thought you could because NEIS will be there to support you all the way". - Louise Brown, Central Coast
