A STUDENT-CENTERED APPROACH TO TRAINING
Transform Training prides itself on operating a friendly and stimulating training environment at all times. An important part of this is making sure that students are informed of their options, rights and obligations when it comes to training with us.
Our Student Information Booklet contains a wealth of information that can help you navigate the student experience from enrolment details, to payment terms and complaint forms.
Additionally, we have provided some key information below that you may find useful. Please take the time to download and view our Student Information Booklet, and browse the content below. If you cannot find what you are looking for, our friendly staff are always happy to assist.
UNIQUE STUDENT IDENTIFIER (USI)
In Australia, all students undertaking nationally accredited training must have a valid USI. A USI is a reference number made up of numbers and letters. Creating a USI is free. It creates a secure online record of your nationally recognised training that you can access anytime and anywhere, and it’s yours for life. If you do not already have a USI, you can sign up for one online by clicking the button below.
RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
Do you already have many of the skills that are being taught in a particular course?
Transform Training recognises existing skills and prior learning through our Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) Program, because there is no need to learn what you already know.
Through our RPL program, we work with students to substantiate their existing skills and knowledge, and to determine to what extent these can be counted toward completion of a qualification. From there we then ascertain how much remaining training and assessment is required for the student to complete the particular training package.
The RPL program consists of four main steps and takes approximately 2-4 weeks to complete, depending on how long it takes you to gather evidence of your prior learning. Discuss your RPL avenues with one of our staff today.
CITB SHORT-COURSE FUNDING
If you are a South Australian worker in the Construction Industry, you may be eligible to receive subsidised training thanks to the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB). The CITB provides access to subsidised training for over 250 short courses to make training more affordable and accessible to the South Australian Building and Construction Industry. Transform Training is a CITB endorsed Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). Construction workers can access up to $3,000 worth of subsidised training in any given 12 month period.
To receive the CITB training subsidy you will need a valid CITB number. You can find out more about CITB funding via the board’s website or by speaking to one of our staff members today.
