Part-Time Higher Nitec Courses

The CET qualification framework allows adult learners to obtain full ITE CET qualification in a shorter time for gainful employment or upgrading purpose. As compared to the full-time Nitec and Higher Nitec courses which are more broad-based in nature, the part-time courses are more job-specific focused to meet the immediate needs of working adults.  Each module, which is self-contained and has employable value, can be completed within a 6-month period.  Part-time students who have successfully completed all the required modules offered in the course of study will be awarded the Higher Nitec in Technology/Services certificate. Module Certificates will be issued to part-time students for modules passed in each examination series.

By clicking on the course, you will see the duration, subjects covered, core and elective module details, specific entry requirements, occupational traits and functional ability requirements (if any), progression opportunities, career opportunities and related courses.
