The Packaging rules are as follows:

Discussing the Training Package this week, KKTC College Manager Sam Hendry encouraged all ACA NSW members to contact the college to help address any questions they had on what the changes mean for their team of educators.


He said “With only two units crossing over from the ‘old quals’ to the ‘new quals’ there is a lot of new learning and competencies for the sector.”


“With teach out just over a year away there is still time for any current Cert 3 qualified staff to upskill to the current Diploma and get the benefit of the credit transfers. Just call the college on 1300 048 133 to discuss.


Further enrolment information for the new Training Package will be made available as soon as the college has both new qualifications on scope.
