"Is the courses by TTA, recognised in Australia?"
Mobile Phone Repair Services have been around for only 10 years, seems like a lifetime ago the first smart phone was released, but to build an industry it takes a long long time. The industry is not yet recognized by the government, so there is no current accredited/ recognised courses available. We believe ourselves to not only be industry leaders but us and our students will become the pioneers. TTA has approved government funding for the research and development of this course, as this is an up and coming industry. We have no doubt that in the near future not only will this industry be recognised but our course will be the first to be recognized.
"Are TTA courses accredited?"
To hold an accredited course, this needs to be accredited by Industry leaders. Being the pioneers for a full online and face to face training in this field we are still too young to achieve this.
