Library Resources

Each of the units of competency has their course notes and supporting information listed in our E-learning website. Students may access this after hours or during the working day, as required.

Each unit of study is accompanied by The MCHOB resource books. The book provides the student with current information related to the area of study and includes activities, assignment details and areas for Instructor comment and evaluation. Unit books must be completed as per the instructions specified. The cost of unit books is incorporated into the course fees. However, if the student should lose his or her unit book, it must be re-purchased at the student's expense.

In addition to these texts, there is an extensive library of text books, reference texts, industry documentation, DVDs and other audiovisual materials. We are also within 100 metres of a public library-Melbourne City Library : our student registration allows the students to work in the public library and refer and use the library resources.
