What is an Accredited Course?

An accredited course is a course which leads to a national qualification, is accredited with ASQA and meets an industry need that is not currently filled by an existing nationally recognised qualification.
Accredited courses are:
  • Like curriculum, providing the qualification or course structure and unit outcomes. An accredited course does not provide content or the assessment tools.
  • Listed on but the details of the qualification or course structure and units contained within are not publicly available.
  • Only accredited if it can be shown that there is a need for the course to be accredited and there is no existing national recognised qualification
  • Made up of existing national units (wherever possible) and enterprise units
  • Only accredited if there is a vocational outcome
  • Aligned to Australian Qualification Framework levels
  • Accredited for 5 years and need to be reaccredited within the 5 year period if training in the qualification is to continue
  • Are copyright owned by an individual or organisation, unlike nationally recognised qualifications which are owned by the Commonwealth government
Contact us to arrange a time for an obligation free discussion if you have a course you are considering accrediting.
