Fast-Track your Learning with CAL

If you’re considering undertaking study, you should think about what skills, experience and expertise you may already have. Fast-tracking can reduce the time it takes for you to get qualified and help you avoid repeating things you already know.

Note: This is a summary of the process. For further details and approval to proceed you must contact your learning coach.

What Does ‘Fast-Tracking’ Mean?

Fast-tracking is the option of skipping some of the tutorial content and activities when there is content that you are already proficient in, saving you from repeating training for things you already know. If you feel confident that you already hold a lot of the competencies being delivered within an online unit, you will be welcomed to test your knowledge so that we can evaluate where you are and exactly how much you still need to learn.

Who Is Eligible for Fast-Tracking?

  • Current managers who can submit workplace documents for assessment
  • People who have at least 5 years’ experience (even if they are not currently working)

How Does Fast-Tracking Work?

  1. If you haven’t spoken to your learning coach about fast-tracking, please make an appointment using contact a coach
    Fast-Tracking must be pre-approved by your coach before you go any further.

  2. Enter the online unit and read the associated summary documents (assessment task and unit learning plan).

  3. Sit the quiz without doing any course work.
    You must receive above 90% on your first attempt to qualify for fast-tracking

  4. Download the assessment task and complete it in full.

    This can be done by doing the task as outlined or by producing evidence of documents you’ve created recently in your workplace.

  5. Submit your work (make sure you select the ‘fast-track’ option)so that we can see where (if any) your gaps are.

    If necessary, we will guide you back to the specific tutorials/activities to complete. This way we can ensure you are 100% confident with the content included in the unit of study.
