Entry Requirements and Pre-Enrolment

You must satisfy the academic entry requirements as required for the respective program or course you are seeking to enrol into.

The academic suitability is assessed via the following evidence:

  • Certificate and/or SOA, or
  • Language, literacy and numeracy test: a written test to determine the prospective student’s ACSF level in the required areas, and
  • Pre-training review.

A pre-training review will be undertaken to determine the course’s suitability to meet your needs and interests. The pre-training review will:

  • Identify any competencies previously acquired
  • Ascertain the most suitable qualification for you to enrol in
  • Ascertain that the proposed learning strategies and materials are appropriate for you
  • Identify that the outcome of proposed qualification is aligned with your future goals

Credit Transfer:

If you have already completed units of competencies previously for the course you are applying for, you may be eligible for a Credit Transfer.

You will need to apply in writing by completing the Credit Transfer Application Form and attach a verified transcript, Award or Statement of Attainment.
