Credit Transfer Policy


This policy applies to Training Ahead Australia VET students and employees.


This policy supports Standard for RTOs 2015 – Standard, Clause 3.5:

 “The RTO accepts and provides credit to learners for units of competency and/or modules (unless licensing or regulatory requirements prevent this) where these are evidenced by:

  • AQF certification  documentation  issued  by  any  other  RTO  or  AQF  authorised  issuing   organisation, or
  • authenticated VET transcripts issued by the Registrar.”

Students that complete nationally endorsed qualifications, skill sets and units of competency are able to have these recognised nationally across Registered Training Organisations. If a student completed the Credit Transfer application and can provide authentic documentation, they will not be required to repeat any unit or module at Training Ahead Australia that they have already been assessed competent, unless a regulatory requirement or licence condition (including an industry licensing scheme) requires this.

Before Training Ahead Australia can provide a credit transfer, a Training Ahead Australia employee will complete an authentication process which includes directly accessing a students USI transcript online or by contacting the organisation that issued the document to confirm the content is valid.

In the case of any non-equivalent units of competency, Training Ahead Australia may complete an analysis to determine the equivalence of the study completed with the relevant units or modules before granting a credit.
