Competency-based training

Competency is the consistent application of knowledge and skill to the standard of performance required in the workplace. As this is a competency-based course, the assessments will involve the demonstration of skill, knowledge and the ability to work consistently to the standards required. The assessment tasks may include questioning, case studies, third party feedback or workplace projects.

Course Fees and Subsidies

Course Fees and subsidies available vary across courses with some of our courses subsidised by either State or Federal Governments. Please refer to Course Fees and Subsidies to learn more about the current course fees and subsidies available.

Course Requirements

All vocational courses require a number of units to be successfully completed. To learn more about specific learning requirements and the delivery of these units refer to the specific course information.

In addition to the completion of units, some of our courses require a certain number of hours of work placement, work experience or pastoral supervision. Please refer to the specific course to learn if any additional prerequisites are required.

Credit Transfers

A credit transfer provides automatic credit for units you have already completed in an accredited course with another training provider. There is no charge for credit transfers, and your course fees will be reduced if you are eligible. Please discuss this with the Course Coordinator when you enrol.
