What does the program cost?
Eligibility to VETis Certificate 3 Guarantee funding by the Queensland government allows AISR to deliver the combined above programs which would have a normal fee in total of $2240 for no training cost.
The no training cost programs are based on VETiS funding eligibility, location and completion of all 15 Certificate II units delivered and assessed by AGI or approved partner provider and VETiS funding claimed by AGI. There are equipment provision requirements, please read below. Programs exclude activity specific optional extras, additional boat diving options or additional transport requirements.
VETiS funding criteria: Australian citizen or permanent resident presently residing and studying in a Queensland school, grades 10, 11 and 12, aged 15 years old and over and have not completed or presently undertaking a program from the VETis stream funded list. Common programs from this list that would make applicants not eligible if the training was conducted and completed by a private RTO (excluding school RTO training) are: Certificate I or II in Tourism, Hospitality or Furniture Making. Eligibility must be confirmed while student is attending school during the school term.
To check eligibility we require your full name, date of birth and school year (10 to 12) and VET courses undertaken. If eligible and you wish to enrol we would require documents to support your eligibility, a list of documents is located on our how to enrol page and further information is available at the Queensland Government training website www.training.qld.gov.au loaded with helpful information including the VETiS fact sheet
Completed units (if applicable): Some students may have already completed units included in the Certificate, even if completed as part of a fee for service program, then the student already is competent in those units and will not receive funding for units already completed. AISR reserves the right to enrol students who are eligible for all 15 units. VETiS funding from the Queensland Government is only available for one Certificate II program to eligible students (excluding school RTO delivered programs). Therefore it is important to make a well informed decision for the best outcome. Our program is rich in outcomes giving a nationally recognised qualification, real industry experience, free access to Industry licensing and skills, unlike non-skill based Sport and Recreation Certificate programs which have no meaningful industry outcomes; employers want skills!
Duration: The normal duration of this program is 3 to 6 months, however program lengths will vary to students own self study commitment and training plan arrangements including fulltime training camp scheduling (normally over 2 weeks) plus training days spread throughout the school terms.
Delivery: The Combined Certificate and PADI programs consists of training clusters incorporating delivery methods: self study (online and workbooks), face to face and practical training conducted in facility and in water. As our course learning content and assessments are written to facilitate and maximise an activity outcome, a number of our units commence and run along with the PADI diving component. This clustering produces excellent outcomes for the student that industry requires and also significantly reduces duplications and time frames. Note the PADI course is not embedded in the Certificate course and is separate coursework.
Entry requirements for Certificate II in Outdoor Recreation (all activities)
There are no entry requirements for this qualification, however if undertaking SCUBA stream applicants must undertake and meet Queensland Recreational diving code and PADI requirements to partake in SCUBA training which will be conducted by our professional PADI licenced partner facilities before enrolment.
