Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.

Recognition of prior learning, also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person's current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired.

This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are considering doing study. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.

The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. Please contact the office for an RPL kit.

After completing this course you can enrol in Diploma of Electrical and Instrumentation

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" Just finished my cert 3 instro, was a great course that is very well set out. Kev has done an awesome job with the videos which allow you to complete it at your own pace. I wasn’t working during the time I did the course, took my time with each section and completed it in a 3 week period. The equipment, testing equipment, instruments and valves ect. are all common equipment you will find on oil and gas and mining sites. If you want to get into instrumentation, do it through Ausinet."
