Fee cut for TAFE courses announced at Mt Lawley Campus 2nd July 2020


"While it might be fun, I'm told bingeing Grey's Anatomy doesn't count as training to become a nurse in WA.
But don't stress, because we've just cut fees for Diploma of Nursing courses at WA TAFEs by 72%.
We've now slashed fees for 73 courses that teach in-demand skills, and created 15 new free TAFE Short Courses to upskill WA's workforce." 
Mark McGowan. (2020, July 2).  While it might be fun [Facebook status update].
