Our Difference

distance learning made different

Here at Back to Basics, we deliver our courses by clustering Units of Competency into content-relevant groups called Modules. This way you are able to attain learning outcomes of several units in a single module. This format helps you focus on a subject matter and understand the necessary fundamentals in order to complete your course.

Back to Basics courses are designed so you are able to learn at your own pace via distance learning, enabling you the freedom to study when you want at any time or place in the world!

We cater to new students, people who have not been in formal study for a long period of time, and those that are also working or have family commitments.
