Frequently Asked Questions
Can I complete my qualification in less than 12 months?
Yes you can. All of our qualifications are self paced and supported by a dedicated Trainer assigned to you who works at your pace.
Are your qualifications Nationally Recognised Qualifications?
Yes they are. The Australian Adult Learning Institute is a Nationally Registered Training Organisation Provider No: 41044 and are registered on the National Government Training and Qualification Website (www.training.gov.au).
We always recommend that you check that your Training Provider is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and not a third party broker acting on behalf of an RTO. Training Providers who are not a RTO cannot issue a Nationally Recognised Qualification.
What do I receive once enrolled?
During the enrolment process and prior to the commencement of your course you are provided with comprehensive information regarding the qualification you are about to commence. This information will include but not limited to, online tutorials/guides providing information about how to navigate through your online learning whilst studying, which components of your online learning are required to be completed as assessment tasks, and how to complete your assessment effectively.
Once your enrolment has been finalised you are assigned a dedicated Trainer as you complete your course. You will then be provided with your online access so that you can commence your studies.
Why are your qualifications less expensive than other training providers?
At the Australian Adult Learning Institute we believe in "Making Education Affordable".
We offer online promotions throughout the year to ensure that our students are not paying over inflated prices that some training providers charge. The price advertised is for the full qualification to be completed within 12 months with no hidden charges.
Are there any hidden charges?
Definitely not, all prices advertised on our website are the full price for each qualification. We believe in being 100% transparent in all advertising and pricing.
Are your online learning materials truly online as many training providers say they are but they are only PDF files I can download or are they sent to me on a memory stick?
