How to enrol

Stephanie Wood

TAFE gave my career certainty and direction

"I credit my industry and TAFE Queensland Brisbane experiences to the certainty I have today about my future career direction as a Vet Nurse. I landed a traineeship at a local veterinary clinic mid-way through Year 12 and that meant I could enrol in the Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. It's a fantastic course. All the materials are online, so you can complete the assignments around work hours."
