How online study works

Credit Transfer

You may have started studying somewhere else and weren’t able to complete your qualifications because life got in the way.

If you have already completed units with a recognised VET provider, you may receive credit for that and you won’t need to repeat it with Open Training. This process is called Credit Transfer and if you’re eligible, it means you won’t need to do as many units to complete your course. 

To get that credit transfer, it needs to be in the current training package or recognised as an equivalent unit.

For more information, refer to our Credit Transfer Policy. If you do want to apply for a transfer, you’ll need to complete and submit a Credit Transfer Application form via email to If you need further help, contact our Student Advisors on  138 775 or by email.
