Studying at ACIS SkillSet Training

Course Delivery                                    

A number of approaches to course delivery are used by staff. Course delivery approaches may include: teacher-led classroom delivery, workshops, practicals, seminars, tutorials, and supervised study. During class time students will be expected to participate by answering questions, giving opinions, demonstrating tasks, working with others in groups, making presentations and role-playing situations.
The duration of the course specified in the course information includes only formal training. Students are required to spend a minimum of 20 hours per week for individual study (including self-paced learning, research, learning activities and assessment activities) in addition to their scheduled timetable.
 

Course Assessment

A number of approaches to course assessment are used by ACIS. Assessment approaches may be undertaken by practical demonstrations, case studies, projects, assignments, presentations, role plays, written tests, and exams.
 
Plagiarism
Acts of plagiarism, collusion and cheating are not permitted in any work completed for assessment and will result in a written warning and repeating the VET unit of competency, as well as incurring any associated charges. If a student is caught engaging in these acts a second time, they may be suspended or expelled from the Institute.

USI – Unique Student Identifier

All students undertaking vocational education and training must hold a Unique Student Identifier (USI) and provide it to the Institute during the enrolment process. ACIS will not be able to issue a Certificate, a Statement of Attainment or an academic transcript if a USI has not been provided. For details on USI, visit www.usi.gov.au.

Recognition of AQF Qualifications

Students who have completed identical units from their course at other institutions will be given recognition/ credit on presentation of a verified transcript, Award or Statement of Attainment. Application for credit transfer must be lodged in writing.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Students who believe they already have some of the competencies in the course they wish to study may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). An essential requirement of RPL is proof of competency. This may involve providing copies of your resume and/or work performance appraisals,
job position descriptions, and any certificates of informal or formal training. You may be asked for contact details of people who can vouch for your skill level: supervisors from current or previous workplaces, clients, or some character references from the community. Examples of other useful records include letters from employers and records of your professional development sessions.

To apply for RPL, fill out the RPL application form provided during enrolment.
