Office 365 web apps

While you study with CAL, you’re granted access to Microsoft’s Office 356 web apps suite to support your study. You’ll be able to make the most of Word, Powerpoint and Excel features online, make sure all work is saved as you go with autosaving, stay organised with OneNote and have unlimited cloud storage.

Online study flexibility

Online study is a great option for anyone, but it’s the best option for those who want to fit study around a busy lifestyle. If you’re looking to study but are currently working, have a busy family life or are unable to get to campus for scheduled classes, online study may just be the right choice for you.

Is online study right for me?
Delay your start

You can start studying at any time within the first three months after your registration has been processed. Your payment plan will start right away, but your course duration will start when you do. If the best thing for you is to lock in your enrolment now but starting in the next three months, apply to enrol and have a conversation with your Learning Consultant about your circumstances so they can help with delaying your study.

Questions? We have the answers.

You might have 101 questions you want answered before you take the next step and apply to enrol. Our Learning Consultants are always happy to answer your questions, but here are a few things that might help if you’re not yet ready to talk to someone in our team.

I could apply the skills…essentially on the go, which was really great. It coincided perfectly with the project that I was working on the time.

The registration submission process

When you get to the checkout, you’ll see there’s more to it than just payment. We gather a few essential bits of information, such as:

  • Confirming you’re 18+ years of age,
  • If English is your first language (if it’s not, we’ll need to check your literacy and numeracy skills before you start your studies to ensure you have a smooth learning journey),
  • Which payment plan you’ve chosen (if you’re not paying the full course fee upfront),
  • Confirming you agree to our terms and conditions and Privacy Policy,
  • And of course, making that first payment to get your study journey started.

What happens next

Provided everything checks out, you’ll get an email confirming your acceptance and welcoming you to CAL. Once you receive your login details for Spark, our online learning platform, it’s time to log in, have a look around, and take the next steps in your study journey.

I was very nervous about returning back to study after several years of being a stay at home mum, however I found the guidance and support I received throughout my studies really helped me feel comfortable and assisted in my growth and understanding of Human Resources. The course was flexible to my lifestyle and needs and I’ve felt my confidence develop since starting. I can’t wait to see what the future holds now.

Thank you to all the incredible staff at CAL, especially to my coach who was so encouraging and supportive and really took the time to understand me and help me understand the content.

Enrol

Once our enrolments team has processed your registration, they will send you your official CAL Enrolment Form. This form goes through all the information we need to have you on board as a CAL student officially. Complete and return your enrolment form, and you’ll be ready to start your studies. Assuming there are no issues, your Enrolments Officer will process your enrolment within the next two business days.

Delaying your start

If you have chosen to delay your start, you’ll receive a confirmation of your expected start date and you’ll be prompted to go through the enrolment process when that date arrives. If you receive the enrolment form right after registration and you were planning to delay your study, it’s crucial that you communicate that with our team BEFORE you submit the enrolment form.

Getting started

What you need before completing the enrolment form
  • Your Unique Student Identifier (USI). This is your personal ID number for your lifetime of studies. It also creates an online record of your training attainments in Australia. You’ll need this set up before you enrol as providing your USI number is part of the enrolment application form. If you have studied a nationally accredited course in Australia since 2015, you will probably already have one. If you haven’t, you’ll need to set one up.
  • Prior education levels
  • Medical issues or disabilities
  • Your motivation for study and what you want to achieve. This is important for our Real Outcomes Guarantee and identifying whether you’ve achieved your career goals as a result of studying with us.

Once you’ve submitted this form, you’ll get a confirmation email and a copy of your enrolment form for your records.

A risk-free start

We take the time to meet and understand our students’ needs, so we’re confident when we create their learning path. But, if you find that the course is not right for you, you can take advantage of our 30 day risk-free guarantee. You can withdraw within the first 30 days of your enrolment for a full refund, less a small administration fee.

Studying with CAL […] has opened up doors for gaining better employment and wages for me. Struggling with surviving in my previous job, I decided to step out of the box and gain a higher qualification than I had. I applied for a new job and having started my course, this had a bearing on gaining the position I am now in. It has been a rewarding journey which I have now completed! Recommend taking the leap!

CAL has been delivering courses online since 2013 and with this comes great pride in ensuring we give students the best online learning platform available. We recommend you log in to Spark, have a look around and get familiar with it.

Join peer groups

To get support from your peers, discuss course content, create career opportunities and build professional relationships, we have set up a LinkedIn group (in addition to the discussion boards on Spark) for you to connect with other students and CAL alumni.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is an efficient way for professionals with substantial and proven industry experience to gain a qualification quickly. RPL is the acknowledgement of fully competent skills, knowledge, expertise, experience and proven abilities usually obtained through the working environment as well as life experiences in general.

If you think you’re eligible for RPL or fast-track, you’ll need to complete the RPL self-evaluation on Spark and then book in a call with one of our team members to discuss possible next steps.

Things to know

How are the courses and assessments delivered?

Our courses are assessed in a number of different ways – a mix of activities, quizzes, written assessments, and even some multiple choice questions. Assessments are based around workplace competencies and readiness, designed to get you in a position to apply for jobs with confidence. This way, the qualification you receive will be a form of evidence, and it’s why employers value diplomas. It’s a workplace-based qualification which allows you to demonstrate or simulate practical skills, based on your experience.

Withdrawals

You’ll have 30 days to try out your course so you can be sure you’ve made the right choice. If you happen to find that your course just isn’t what you’re after in the first 30 days, we will return your course fees, less a small administration fee.

Deferrals

If you find in the middle of your studies that your circumstances change and you need to pause your study for up to three months, you can do that at any point without any additional costs. Get in touch with our team to organise this, if the time comes.

Student Support

Our Student Support team is here to help you during your study journey if you have questions regarding your Individual Learning Plan, using Spark, or deferring your study.

I find the coaches so helpful, thank you Kerri for yesterday. They're logical and encouraging particularly if you're not feeling 100% confident. It's also really refreshing to know that help is easily accessed when needed. So I'd certainly recommended Kerri and the team 🙂

I spent a long time tossing up whether or not to go back to studying...it’s been over 20 years since I last hit the books! While already juggling family, work and other commitments, I was no doubt going to put myself under even more pressure! I decided to take the plunge and, sure enough, it was every bit the anxiety inducing ride I expected it to be!That said, I am so glad I went ahead and did this. Not only will these qualifications assist me in the future but The College For Adult Learning also has coaches like Kerri Waddell to help you through it making it almost worth the premature ageing. If it weren’t for her ability to keep me focused (and sane) then I’m confident I’d have packed it in! She has fantastic knowledge of the course content, an ability to give clear and concise feedback and a calming influence during the coaching calls.If you’re unsure whether or not to go back to studying, I won’t lie, it’s TOUGH! But if you land a coach like Kerri who can keep you on the right track then the only person who can stop you from getting through it......is YOU!

Having been in the workforce for a few decades I am very aware that my resume needed some attention to make it more appealing to prospective employers (now I know it is not a CV!). My experience with Jenni the career counsellor was exceptional. She requested that I send through my current resume for review prior to our meeting. The feedback from Jenni was so helpful. She was encouraging too, and made me feel more sure about how to 'sell myself' to the target employers. I am very impressed with CAL's careers hub - many resources that I will use. Thank you very much for your help.

I even receive courtesy emails and reminders on how I was going throughout the process. The staff are of excellent and professional services and I couldn't recommend them more. Thank you CAL for helping me reach my goals in such a short period. I studied the Double Diploma of Building and Construction (Management) along with Project Management and couldn't have done it without the team at CAL. Thank you for providing this wonderful service! I'm sure I will be back to do a Leadership Management course!

I have recently completed a Double Diploma in Project Management and Leadership & Management through CAL. The coaches at CAL are friendly and very helpful. I was able to complete the course well under the allocated time due to the user friendly platform that CAL have constructed and also aided by the fast response times from CAL staff.My assignments were returned quickly with a detailed response indicating what I did well and what I should pay more attention to which helped shape my thought patterns through the course until I had the bigger picture on what was required from me at the final assessment.CAL staff have always been easy to contact and very considerate to the fact that most learners are working full time while undertaking their studies.I have learnt a great deal through this course and would like to thank everyone at the College for Adult Learning for their assistance through my journey.

I have recently completed my Double Diploma of Humam Resources Management & Leadership Management with CAL - it was a great experience & I enjoyed completing my studies with CAL. I had great support from my coaches & the college throughout my course which made stress free. I would most definitely recommend CAL to all looking to complete a nationally recognised diploma at a self paced level. I completed my course in 2.5 years while working full time, the college was so supportive during my 2.5 years of studies with them! I am now qualified in the field I have been passionate about which mean I can now confidently apply for roles with HRM thanks to my new Double Diploma I have completed with CAL! I highly recommend CAL to prospect students!

Celebrating that I recently completed my Double Diploma in Business Administration & Leadership and Management. I feel that I learnt valuable skills and knowledge to assist my career. I commenced this course during a period of not having a workplace due to taking leave to care for my aged mother and wanting to improve my work skills. I used all of the Case Study resources which were relevant to units and this provided good direction and material to complete assessments. With my previous work knowledge and experience I was able to fast track quite a few of the units and then other units I found it valuable to work through the tutorials and activities to gain further knowledge.My coaches and assessors over the course were Meagan and Marissa and they were both wonderful facilitators, being friendly, encouraging and supportive. It was always a pleasure to talk with them and also made me feel comfortable completing role play assessments. If I needed any clarification of requirements it was easy just to book a call and then gain insight to get the tasks completed. Thank you Meagan and Marissa, you gave me wonderful inspiration to complete the course.My whole experience across the course was that it was very supportive from all of the team at CAL from the beginning to the finish, including the student administration team and the online learning platform is easy to use.It feels rewarding to have completed the course and it’s given me greater confidence now that I’m back in the workforce.Jenni Pickert

I felt that there was material available for various learning styles - which sometimes is missed with on-line learning. Learning material was perfect for me as it allowed me to push and challenge myself and get the most out of the course that I required. The whole team were supportive in my learnings and offered help with work / study / life balance when I was time poor due to work commitments, which I feel is a nice personal touch, they understand the human side and you are not just a number. I 100% recommended CAL as a study platform.

I have just completed my double diploma in HR Management and Business Admin. This has been one of the best online platforms that I have used for my learning experiences. The content Is excellent and very thorough, there are various methods you can use, depending on your learning style. There is a lot of work, but is totally rewarding as you work through it. My biggest take home is if you have any issues or get stuck is to always communicate with the lecturers or even the office staff, the whole team is super supportive. I struggled a couple of times with work time pressures where it got too much, the CAL team where very supportive and assisted me through it. Kerry and Marissa where both great facilitators when working though my major assignments, and thanks them both for making it an easy process. At the end of the day CAL want you to pass and will work with you through the process. Thanks to the CAL team!!! 😎😎

I found each member of staff to be kind, well spoken, polite and very helpful. They are quick to respond to queries. The trainers/assessors make you feel comfortable during the assessment process. The college regularly check in with students which is another great aspect. I have throughly enjoyed working through my studies with The College for Adult Learning and the staff. I recently completed another course with another RTO and have found I have enjoyed the college more so I have been looking at what I can do next with them. I highly recommend the College for Adult Learning.

I found my whole experience with CAL to be a positive one. It's been many years since I have been in a "school" environment, so it took some discipline to get through this course. I set myself a 2 hour minimum study period each day which took a fair bit of effort and focus, as I work full-time plus have a family to look after. It was hard initially, but after a couple of weeks, I found my rhythm and it was smooth sailing after that. I also didn't put any pressure on myself-if I had a bad day at work-I didn't touch any study as I found no joy when I hit the books in that frame of mind, and that made it hard work. So, I found giving study a miss for one or two days actually beneficial, and when I did go back, I was more involved and interested in my course than before. I have nothing but praise for the support I received from the whole team at CAL - from the admin staff to the tutors. They responded quickly and the coaching calls helped me to get to the next questions/units quickly. A big thank you to each of you for the part you played in helping me achieve a long-held goal. I highly recommend CAL to anybody who is looking to take on some study. The content is laid out well and easily followed. The exercises for each topic and the assessments went a long way in ensuring that the information absorbed was drilled home.

CAL provided a great opportunity to learn at your own pace. I would highly recommend their Diploma of Project Management if you are new to the field and looking for an opportunity to learn as you do. The Diploma greatly supported the project I was working on at the time, running me through all the steps as I implemented them.

I have just completed a double diploma with CAL. I found all of the staff there very supportive indeed and did not experience any rudeness whatsoever. Unforeseen circumstances meant that i had to request an extension , CAL were very professional in their response and understanding. Studying online is not for everyone and can be difficult if you are returning back to study after a long period. However CAL are there to support you it just takes a little bit of time to get a response from your coach, but once you are speaking with them they clarify and help you with your course work. I would recommend sourcing a study group either students from CAL or somewhere else where you can bounce ideas off each other regarding the course. This will help you as you work through the self directed learning and complete your tasks and activities in the course.Thanks to all the team at CAL who helped me through my course and got me to the end.

I really enjoy my studies at the college of Adult Learning, ( I am studying the double Diploma in Human Resources and Leadership Management)the trainers are helpful and very easy to talk to. It’s taken me a bit longer to complete than expected but I can go at my own pace and I now book regular coaching calls to keep me active in my studies. Over all, I’m really happy I choose this course and this college.

I have officially finished my double diploma with CAL and I must say it was a great experience. The content was terrific and the staff/assessors were very prompt with their responses. I highly recommend if you enjoy online studying.

I have just submitted Unit 10 and I must say it has been a tough course but feel I have put in what I wanted to get out of the course. I wanted to push myself so only asked for coaching advice a couple of times. Hard to juggle with kids and work but if you plan your time well it will work. Recommended course content and coaching were quick to respond. Thanks CAL

I’m currently doing a double diploma of construction management and Project Management. All the coaches and staff at CAL have been very helpful and the studies have been great as they provide all the text books and study resources that I need to understand all processes and regulations involved in the field I am pursuing.

I recently completed the Double Diploma in Project Management | Leadership and Management. From my initial enquiry and dealings with Tristan who was super helpful, informative and supportive, through to starting the course with the help of Student engagement coach David who helped me every step of the way and checked in to see how I was getting on, The College for Adult Learning was a fantastic learning experience which exceeded my expectations. With each Unit completed the next would be unlocked straight away and marked within the times stated (generally in half the time). The feedback from the coaches was the best of all always super encouraging and supportive but also included much needed advice in areas that may require extra study or focus. Anything I was unsure of I simply booked a time that suited me for a coach to call me to discuss anything I was unsure about. I highly rate and recommend CAL and look forward to studying with them again in the near future! Thanks so much guys !!

We understand that you may be ready to start achieving your career goals but unable to begin studying immediately. That’s why we offer students the option to register for their course and to delay their start. You can lock in your course then start studying within the next three months.

At CAL, we will work with you to find a pathway that’s best suited to your career goals. This is why we offer zero fees for course transfers for our students. To accommodate our students’ busy lives, we offer a free 90-day deferral, and we also offer one free 6-month extension.

We’re confident you will love your course. However, if you find that the course is just not right, you can withdraw within the first 30 days for a full refund of your course fees less a small administration fee of $150. Unlike other RTO’s who offer up to just 14-day refund periods, at CAL we offer 30 days to our students.

To help our students continue on their learning journey, we offer a free 6-month extension to ensure they’re in the best position to complete their course. We are also happy to offer re-enrolments. We won’t ever charge the full course fee for re-enrolments (some fees do apply).
