Each Toolbox comes with a teacher guide and installation booklet, and can be customised to suit different learner or workplace training needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Toolboxes can be copied and distributed within a RTO or workplace free of charge, provided they are not on-sold for commercial gain or made publicly available </li></ul>
