What is an Accredited Course and why is it important?
An accredited course is a course that a skills assessment authority has already reviewed, deeming the course content and structure suitable to pass a skills assessment. Other documentation relating to work experience or previous education is generally not required to be submitted. This allows for a smooth and simple process for your skills assessment.
If you study a course that is not accredited by the skills assessment authority, you cannot be sure that it meets the requirement to pass the skills assessment. You may have to submit additional documentation regarding your education and work experience. If your course is not accredited, it may not meet the specific requirements of the skills assessor.
