Assessment

Participants who have undertaken previous study at another training organisation may be eligible to receive exemptions from units. All Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) applications must be accompanied by suitable documentary evidence of previous study (eg. transcripts). Previous studies must have been completed within the past 5 years, with credit available up to a maximum of 50% of the units in your nominated course and identical unit codes.

If you get stuck with an assignment or have a question relating to the learning materials, your tutors are available to provide guidance and feedback. You can contact them via My Study Centre on our website, or via email. Tutors will respond to all enquiries ASAP and are available 7 days for your convenience.

If you do not pass your assignment on the third attempt, you will need to re-enrol into the unit (charges apply).

The general guidelines is to keep it at 10% difference – so either 10% under or 10% over is acceptable, unless otherwise stated.
