Study Commitments

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) provides a guide to volume of learning which describes how long a student who does not hold any of the competencies identified in the relevant units of competency or modules would take to develop all the required skills and knowledge. ‘Volume of learning’ includes all teaching, learning and assessment activities that a typical student must undertake to achieve the learning outcomes, including any minimum on the job component.

For a Certificate III level qualification this time could vary from 1200hrs to 2400hrs.

Based on TLC’s model of delivery and resources, and using a 12mth enrolment as a guide, we advise students to be prepared to allocate approximately 23hrs a week to their studies. This time will include all trainer time, personal study time, on the job placement and completion of assessments.

Time required will increase or decrease depending on mode of study and length of enrolment.
