Credit Transfer

If you’ve already completed a unit of competency in your chosen qualification before enrolling with Open Training Institute you may be eligible for credit.

Credit can be awarded when the unit of competency (including the unit code) you already have exactly matches the unit of competency offered in your Open Training Institute qualification.

If the unit code of the unit of competency you have completed ends in a different letter we might still be able to help but will need to take a closer look.
