What is Nationally Recognised Training and how does online training work?

Online training allows you to complete training at your own pace and at a time which suits you. It is simple to use. Courses are made up of Units of Competency.

The Units of Competency in your course are broken into various sections of learning to allow you to focus on one area of learning at a time and to provide flexibility in completion of the course.

Each section has information which you must read. The course content, or information in each section is the important detail you need to understand. At the end of each section there are a series of questions which you must answer by either selecting multiple choice answers or by typing in a written answer.

A National Training Package is a consistent and reliable set of nationally endorsed standards and qualifications for recognising and assessing people's skills.

I have changed my name. How can I get my certificate changed

We can change the name of your certificate; however, we can only issue a statement of Attainment in the name given to USI. So, the first thing you will have to do is change your name with them. Once this has been completed, we will need to have a copy of a photo ID with your new name along with the letter or transcript from the USI registry stating the name change. It sounds ominous, but please be assured USI do this all the time and I have always found them helpful. Please go to www.usi.gov.au to begin the process.

I want my certificate in a different name

We can only issue a statement of attainment in the same name as is recorded with the USI registry. If you have officially changed your name, then we can help you. We still have to issue in the name registered with USI, so your first action is to change your name with the USI Registry - www.usi.gov.au - send then a message and they will guide you through the process. Once you successfully changed your name, we will need a transcript stating your name changes and a photo ID with your new name. Once this is done get back in touch with us.  Good luck.

I can't upload my video

"To begin troubleshooting, it's crucial to ensure a stable internet connection. Sometimes, a weak connection can hinder the uploading process. Once you've confirmed your internet connection is strong, the next step is to verify the file format and size of your video. Different platforms often have specific requirements regarding these aspects. If your video's format or size doesn't meet these requirements, you might need to convert or compress the file prior to uploading.

If you've already attempted these steps and still find yourself unable to successfully upload your video, I recommend seeking assistance from the technical support team at AAAT. They possess the expertise to offer you further guidance and support in resolving this issue. For direct assistance, you can reach out to them by sending an email to info@aaat.edu.au. Their knowledgeable team should be well-equipped to assist you in overcoming these challenges and ensuring your video gets uploaded as intended."

We recommend consulting your learner guide initially, as it often contains the answers you seek. Additionally, you'll find a collection of useful documents in the resources list located on the left-hand side of your page. Taking a look at these resources is a great starting point. However, please note that we're unable to directly provide you with answers. We encourage you to give it a try yourself first.

Can you provide me with the answers I need?

"While we're here to support you, we are unable to supply direct answers. We kindly ask you to refer to your learner guide and explore the documents available in the resources list on the left-hand side of your page.
