I did the Cert IV last year through TAFE, it was an on line course and we logged in weekly. Not sure what you mean by DE.
I found some units more difficult than others, also the wording of some of the questions made it hard to sometimes determine what was actually required.

I have done Cert IV and it was interesting, particularly if you’re working as RAO already. What does DE mean?

DE means Distance Education

I'm certain that DE stands for DISTANCE EDUCATION ladies. I completed my Diploma of Leisure and Lifestyle in a similiar manner but it was referred to as EXTERNAL FORMAT. Pauline your course coordinator should be able to support you throughout your entire certificate. He or she should be able to advise you on what is required to meet assessment criteria. Your superivisor in your work place should also be of assistance to you. If these people are not supportive I would be looking elsewhere to finish my study, and to continue working in this wonderful field of employment.

Hi, I have just completed my Cert IV in Leisure and Health through Southbank Institute of Technology externally. I did struggle with it at first - I'm sure it would be easier in a classroom situation. Mostly it was the projects at the end of each Module that I wasn't sure how to structure. I do have to agree with Patricia sometimes trying to figure out what exactly they required with some of the wording of the questions proved difficult. Glad to be of assistance if you get stuck.
