Training Delivery

The context of the simulated workplace environment will be incorporated into delivery methodologies and students will complete tasks to appropriate workplace standards.

The participants in each program group will be provided with detailed learning materials to support the activities. These materials will include learning, assessment and other reference material relevant to the unit of competency being delivered


This course is offered full time over 104 weeks (including holidays) on a full-time basis for 20 hours per week. Students need to gain competency in 16 units (06 core units and 10 elective units) to successfully complete this course.

Recognition Of Prior Learning And Credit Transfer

The underlying principle of Nationally Recognised Training is that a learner does not have to repeat training and assessment that has already been undertaken.
YCA has a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer Policies and Procedures and can be found at YCA's website, which outlines in detail a process to be followed for granting recognition and credit transfer. This is supported through the RPL guidelines for this qualification which focus specifically on all units.
Learners are encouraged to apply for RPL prior to or immediately after formal enrolment but prior to the facilitated delivery of units to ensure that they do not miss any training opportunities offered should they be unsuccessful in the RPL process.
Credit Transfer relates to the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training, and involves assessing a previously completed course or units to see if it provides equivalent learning or competency
outcomes to those required within the current course of study. Learners must provide transcripts of results and/or statements of attainment for credit transfer to be assessed. Where a learner is successful in the RPL or Credit Transfer (CT) application, the units to be undertaken and course duration will be adjusted accordingly.
