Pre-Training Review

For each Learner enrolling in a vocational qualification, regardless of eligible or ineligible status under the Victorian Training Guarantee, Federation Training will conduct a Pre-Training Review of current competencies (including literacy and numeracy skills) prior to commencement in training.

The Pre-Training Review will:

  • identify any competencies previously acquired (Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) or Credit Transfer);
  • ascertain the most appropriate qualification for that Learner to enrol in, including consideration of the likely job outcomes from the development of new competencies and skills; and
  • ascertain that the proposed learning strategies and materials are appropriate for that individual.

When the Pre-Training Review identifies that a Learner may not have the Foundation skills required, the Learner will be referred to an Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) specialist for an assessment against ACSF core skills of learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy.

When a gap exists between the Learner’s assessed ACSF level and the ACSF levels required within the vocational qualification (whether in any one, or a combination, of ACSF-assessed skills), Federation Training will recommend appropriate strategies for the Learner.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) involves a formal recognition of the skills and knowledge a person has already achieved through previous studies, work and life experiences. Students may be awarded full or part qualifications on the basis of their assessment.

Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) and Credit Transfer (CT)

If you have a certificate of results from previous training and your previous training is within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), it will be recognised by Federation Training. This means that you may apply for credits for any nationally recognised components of training that you have already successfully completed. Provided that your application meets the requirements, you will not have to complete these components of study again.

This also ensures that any AQF Qualification or results you attain whilst undertaking studies at Federation Training will be fully recognised by all other Registered Training Organisations across Australia.

For more information on Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) and Credit Transfers contact us on 1300 133 717.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Prior to enrolment students require their own Unique Student Identifier (USI). Your USI will help keep your training records and results together in an online account controlled by you.

From 2016, each time you enrol to study with a new training organisation, your USI will be used to store your training records and results. By having a USI you will be able to access your training records and results (or transcript) whenever you need them. For example, for a new employer or when you enrol to study at a new training organisation.

Your USI can be accessed online from your computer, tablet or smart phone and gives you access to your training records and results at your fingertips.  To obtain yours go to: www.USI.gov.au

Induction & Orientation

Induction and orientation is an important process for all students. Induction and orientation processes may differ depending on the course you are participating in.

All students will be provided with an induction session at the beginning of a course and you may be asked to participate in an Orientation Day.
