In order to succeed in our online qualifications, prospective students will need to demonstrate the required level of competency in English language, literacy and numeracy skills. This usually means we require either completion of year 12 (or equivalent) or the completion of a language, literacy and numeracy test to ensure you have the foundation and ACSF skills necessary to commence study with us. The required level of competency for a Diploma is ACSF Level 4 and for a Certificate IV, ACSF Level 3 is the required competency level.
While there is no formal prerequisite study required to enter this qualification, it is recommended that individuals 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.
Upon enrolment, all students will 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 a 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.
