Student Information

Our enrolment process

covid response - Training

The Victorian Government has advised that training organisations must undertake their study remotely during Stage 4 of the state’s fight against Coronavirus. Therefore, aligning with Government guidelines, bestchance Training will continue to deliver our courses remotely and we will commence new courses remotely as planned.

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, so we’ve implemented our own measures to minimise the risk of COVID-19. 

Our training locations will be closed for the duration of Stage 4 to minimise the need for students and staff to travel. In addition, all classes will be delivered remotely via Zoom videoconferencing – which is free and easy to use on any laptop or tablet device. Our face to face classes will resume, accordingly aligned with the Victorian Government guidelines.

This is a difficult time for everyone, but you shouldn’t let it stand in the way of obtaining your qualification.  And we’re here to help you achieve this.

Material Fees

Material Fees cover the cost of your Student ID Card and student resources, including workbooks, assessments, class handouts and any required readings.

These fees remain the same whether you are receiving government funding or you are a full fee student.  Material Fees must be paid in full prior to commencement.

We can setup a Direct Debit schedule for any remaining fees over the duration of your course.

Credit Transfers & Recognition
of Prior Learning

We recognise qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by other Registered Training Organisations. A certified copy of a Diploma, Certificate (and associated Statement of Result) or Statement of Attainment must be submitted to administration.

We shall also assess a previously completed course or subject to see if it provides equivalent learning or competency outcomes to those required within the learner’s current program. To read more and fill out your courses Credit Transfer application form, visit Student Resources.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assesses an individual’s formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which they have achieved the required competency outcomes.

It involves collecting evidence and making judgements on whether competence has been achieved. RPL is available to all learners. Fill out the RPL Application Form for your course at Student Resources.

The RPL process may suit you if you have:

  • Work skills and knowledge
  • Paid or unpaid work experience
  • Life experience
  • Formal training or education

This handbook has been developed to help guide you through your first days as a learner and to give you all the information you need as a bestchance Training student.
