Non-residents of Australia

Course enrolment may not be processed without certified current English proficiency documentation, if requested by AOT.

Orientation period

All students have an orientation period of fourteen (14) days which commences on their course commencement date.

Students may enrol, log into their course, conduct the LLN test provided, and trial the course. AOT believe that this fourteen (14) day orientation period allows the student to determine if the level of qualification and mode of delivery is suitable for them. This process also allows our team to assess your needs and provide any necessary support.

If the student or AOT determine within the orientation period that the level of qualification or learning style is not suitable, then the student is withdrawn as per our Refund and Withdrawal Policy.

Individual Training Plan

An Individual Training Plan (ITP) will be issued to each student, once the enrolment process has been completed. This plan will provide a summary of units and highlight any credit transfers applied.

You are encouraged to complete one unit of competency, before moving on to the next. The order of units in your ITP is the recommended order of study and reflects the order of units listed in your course. If you wish to complete more than one unit at the same time, please discuss this with your trainer, so that you may be guided.
