ARE YOU READY TO BEGIN YOUR SELF - CHECK?
*Lead College Pty Ltd does not have any role in the examination process/ Booking of dates etc for the OBA exam and these matters are handled by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and its authorised testing authorities. This is a non-award preparatory program, hence it does not lead to any certification/qualification/ direct registration as a nurse or midwife in Australia.
