What’s the difference between an accredited and non-accredited course?

Accredited courses

Accredited courses have been assessed by the national regulator, Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) as compliant with required national standards. Accreditation is the formal confirmation that the course is nationally recognised and meets quality assurance requirements.

Non-accredited courses

A non-accredited course, or short course, is developed by experienced sector-led Instructors to meet a professional development need, such as Manual Handling. The formal quality assurance requirements of a nationally accredited course are not needed.
