Recognition of Prior Learning



Australian Consolidated Training offers on-the-job apprenticeships funded by User Choice Queensland. This qualification is funded by the Department of Education, Training and Employment for Queensland apprentices.

Apprenticeships are completed on-the-job with support from Australian Consolidated Training's highly experienced Trainers/Assessors. This model suits employers who do not wish to send their apprentices to block release training, and who would like to take an active role in the training of their apprentices.

This model does not suit all employers and the apprentice must have access to a qualified onsite supervisor who can mentor them and provide evidence of practical training.
Some units of competency may not be able to be taught in the workplace. In this case, some offsite training may be required.

Student Contribution Fees apply. Please refer to the "Apprenticeships" button below for more information.
