In order to succeed in our online qualifications, our students are required to:

The required level of competency in English LLN skills for Diploma and Certificate IV qualifications is ACSF Level 3.

To ensure you have the ACSF skills necessary to commence study with us, you may be required to complete an LLN test if English is not your first language and you do not hold any nationally recognised Australian qualifications.
Upon enrolment, all students will also be assessed over time by their learning coach for their language, literacy and numeracy skills. Where these levels fall below the requisite ACSF standard for the qualification, the coach will advise the student of the remedial options open to them. This may involve additional support or withdrawal of enrolment and refund of fees paid.
Please refer to the relevant CAL Policies and the Student Handbook for full details of the entry-level requirements procedure.

While there is no formal prerequisite study required to enter this qualification, it is beneficial for students to have some relevant industry experience to assist with the learning application required for this course. This may have been obtained through formal and/or informal training, work experience and life experience.

You may be at risk of being passed over for career progression, salary increases or promotion opportunities because you do not have a recognised qualification in Human Resources.

In Human Resources, hiring decision makers consider the real quality of your qualifications.
Your qualification needs to stack up to the level of your experience as represented by your CV.

In this competitive market some may be tempted by a quick fix, tick the box HR course. Beware – these less reputable courses do not stand up under scrutiny. You need an assessment based quality accreditation that is clever enough to validate your experience using evidence from your workplace, while giving you the skills to secure the job and future income you deserve.

Essential skills for the modern HR Manager

This course will challenge you, make you think and take you beyond the ‘old fashioned’ paradigm of HR as ‘personnel management’. You will enter into the new, exciting and stimulating world of the modern HR Professional.

Research conducted by Dave Ulrich (consistently named as the most influential person in HR in publications across the globe) and his colleagues tell us that HR should:

  • Turn outside business trends and stakeholder expectations into internal actions – Focus on both business results and human capital improvement
  • Target both individual ability and organisation capabilities
  • Understand that HR is not about an isolated activity (a training, communication, staffing or compensation program) but sustainable and integrated solutions
  • Respect heritage, while shaping a future
  • Attend to both day-to-day administrative processes and long-term strategic practices.

Research in Australia by the AHRI combined with Ulrich’s work determines that the 21st century HR Professional needs to learn to be:

  • Strategically focused and Business Driven with a sound understanding of the business, and the operational environment. Then develops a HR strategy that engages the workforce and meets both current and future needs.
  • A Stakeholder manager who understands and builds relationships and provides services and support in the ongoing management of human capital
  • Capability builders who work to develop the capacity and capability of others within the organisation
  • Expert and credible practitioners who use and apply their expertise to add value to the business; creatively developing and pushing boundaries to break new ground and advance new concepts within a strong ethical framework.
  • Change agents and managers of change who understand the processes associated with change and how to affect change with minimum angst
  • Technology advocates who can proactively use technology for strategic HRM
