TAFE opened its doors to prospective students yesterday and those who missed the enrolment day will be pleased to know they can still
sign up for courses at the college.

The enrolment day provided the chance for people to ask questions and familiarise themselves with TAFE services and support.

TAFE Broken Hill's Educational Support Officer, Byron Hooker, said the college's business, management, retail, information technology, traditional trades and hospitality courses had secured enough numbers to run in the second semester.

Information Technology teacher, Robynne Sanderson, said there had been a "steady stream" of people enquiring about the computer-related courses.

"We've still got some vacancies," Ms Sanderson said.

"Students can enrol at our office or online."

Meanwhile, Mr Hooker said that two distance education courses that started at the beginning of the year as part of TAFE Western Connect were proving successful.

The Diploma of Management and Case Management courses are offered on an external basis with students able to visit the college for video-conference classes.

Mr Hooker said the Case Management course had been popular with Council employees, while the Diploma of Management attracted students from far and wide.

"A lot of out of town people are doing it as well, which is good."

For more information about the courses on offer call 8082 6888.
