Enrolment options


You can enrol with the Institute several ways:

1. External FULL-TIME or PART-TIME (distance study)


External FT or PT enrolment enables individuals to study at their own pace without formally attending classes. Study guides and assignments are distributed to you by post or via the Institutes client portal for download. Students are generally required to purchase their own textbooks unless otherwise directed.

External FT

External FT means study requiring more than 221 hours per semester or about 15 hours per week. Courses must be completed within 6 months for a Diploma and 12 months for an Advanced Diploma and within 3 months for a Certificate I, II and III and 6 months for a Certificate IV.

External PT

External PT means study requiring less than 221 hours per semester. Courses must be completed within 12 months for a Diploma and 24 months for an Advanced Diploma and within 6 months for a Certificate I, II and III and within 12 months for a Certificate IV.


2.   e-Learning


eLearning is another mode of external studies, involves no class contact and as the name suggests is completed entirely online through the Institutes Learning Management System (LMS). All study material and assessments are available through the eLearning system and asssessment submissions are through the same system. Students can also communicate with their allocated tutor through the eLearning system. This mode is very convenient and studies can be completed anywhere in the world as long as the student has access to a computer with an internet connection.


3. Recognition of prior learning (RPL)


RPL is the formal recognition of skills and knowledge which have been acquired as a result of skills and knowledge as a result of work or life experiences and formal and informal training or qualifications. Where a student is able to demonstrate competency, credit may be granted towards a unit of competency.

After the RPL process a student may:

4. FAST-TRACK training sessions (face to face)


FAST-TRACK delivered qualifications or short courses can be completed intensively within a pre-arranged 1-12 day in class training block or group of blocks. The length of training is dependant on the qualification or short course undertaken. Classes are held in either pre-arranged locations.



Enrolment dates


As most courses are delivered externally, enrolments can be done at anytime of the year. The exceptions are any advertised FAST-TRACK training sessions where participants/students must enrol prior to attending the training date (Fast-Track timetable). See the enrolment process for FAST-TRACK training sessions below here.



Entry requirements


General entry requirements for accredited qualifications offered by the Institute is described for each course description. For current qualifications and short courses, there are no formal entry requirements but they do require the applicant to have sound language and literacy skills, and basic word processing and computer skills. To support your studies, you will be provided with qualified tutors with telephone and or email support.



Businesses or organisations seeking training


Corporate clients seeking bulk staff training can enrol staff either as external FULL-TIME, PART-TIME study, eLearning or by requesting a FAST-TRACK training session by contacting the Institute. Alternatively, check course FAST-TRACK delivery dates and book in with existing advertised sessions.

Enrolment procedures




Step 1: choose a course



It is important to have some idea of the career you want. It does not matter if you are considering a few career paths, just have an end goal as you research your study options.

Once you have worked out the study area(s) you want to focus on, start looking at the whole range of study fields that are available. While some courses may have similar titles, explore the individual course details. This is for you to discover which courses specialise in areas most suited to your career goals.

Accredited qualifications offered by the Institute have no formal entry requirements. However, you will require sound English language and literacy skills, and basic word processing skills.

If you are seeking University entry through a Institute qualification, check the minimum entry requirements into your target degree of choice with the corresponding Institute qualification. Ensure you check on the potential credit gained from the Units of competency (UOC) in the Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Diploma in respect to the undergraduate degree you are seeking to enter. Universities are more considerate of higher vocational qualifications (i.e. Diploma and Advanced Diploma) for entry.

Consider Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) options first

Depending on your prior qualifications and work/life experience, you may be sufficiently competent to obtain some or even all credit for course units in an accredited qualification. If you feel this is the case, contact the Institute and discuss the matter with a course advisor then apply for RPL in the enrolment form.

Flexible enrolment and spaced fee payments
The Institute is flexible in how it handles enrolments. Prospective students are welcome to enrol in 1-2 units at a time, pay the fees for these, complete the units then enrol in the next set of units. This process can be repeated until students have completed all units required for the qualification. By doing so, students can space out fee payments throughout their course.
