Industry Meetings - attendance is required at 100 hours of industry meetings such as seminars, conferences, trade shows, industry committees etc. The purpose of this requirement will be to ensure you are interacting with people who are actively working within your industry, in an “real world” industry context.

Through this interaction, you will have opportunities to relate things you have studied to real life situations, broadening your outlook and relevance with respect to your studies. Industry meetings develop networking and learning opportunities beyond other areas of study and should bring a practical perspective to your education which enhances everything else you do in your course.

The school will accept attendance ant any event or meeting where you have opportunity to interact with people from your industry, which is attended by one or more people who are actively involved in your industry, and are knowledgeable about your industry, whether they be amateurs or professionals.

Examples may be:

  • Joining and attending meetings of a professional association, institute, club, society or some other professional body.
  • Attending meetings as an intern or assistant to a consultant or other professional person (whether a paid or voluntary position)
  • Attending an exhibition, show, field days, festival or any other event.
  • Attending committee meetings, or serving on a committee of any organization which provides opportunities to interact with others from your industry.
  • Attendance at seminars, conferences or workshops which are attended by others from your industry.

You will normally make up your required hours by attending a variety of different events; for example: attending a week long conference might count for 50 to 60 hrs; and attending a trade show may count for 8 hours. Serving on a committee for 6 months may count for 3 to 4 hours per meeting.

Who Decides What to Attend?   You do!
As long as you can verify your attendance and the events can be seen as broadly satisfying the above criteria, it will be accepted.
