What happens if I fail the pre-course assessments for first aid, crowd control refresher or security?
Students at Asset College are required to complete one attempt at their first aid or crowd control refresher online assessments prior to attending face to face training.
If you do not get a 100% pass mark on your first go, don’t worry. Your trainer will walk you through the rest of the material in class and further prepare you for your second attempt. We are here to support you to satisfactorily pass your training.

Do you have payment plans?
Yes we have payment plans available for most of our courses.
Courses from $295 and above are eligible for our zipMoney payment plan.
If you are studying an online course, we suggest the pay as you go payment option. Pay as you go allows you to pay for each unit as you progress through your study. You will pay an enrolment fee plus first unit fee to start and then a unit fee before you are issued each new unit of competency.
zipMoney is available for Recognition of Prior Learning.

Is Asset College legitimate?
Asset College is a registered training organisation operating since 2006. Our ABN number is 80 118 083 971 and you can check our training provider details on training.gov.au.
We were previously known as Asset Training Australia and continue to operate under this legal name.
How long does it take for my certificate to be issued?
Certificates take up to 2 weeks from the time your trainer marks your course as competent. In most cases, our team will get your certificate out to you much quicker than this.
Please make sure you have provided all required enrolment documents including your USI and you have received a competent result in all units of competency.
What is a credit transfer?
A credit transfer refers to the process of recognising and transferring credits earned for completed units of competency or modules from one vocational training program or institution to another. It allows individuals who have already completed certain units of competency to have those credits recognised when enrolling in a new program or institution.
When a person applies for credit transfer, the training provider or institution assesses their previous learning and determines if the competencies achieved in their prior study are equivalent to the competencies required in the new program. If the assessment determines that the learning outcomes and competencies align, the student is granted credit for those units, meaning they do not have to repeat the same content again.
The credit transfer process can save students time and effort by recognising their previous achievements and allowing them to progress more quickly through their vocational education. It also helps individuals who may have completed partial qualifications in the past to build on their previous learning and gain additional qualifications.
It’s important to note that the policies and procedures regarding credit transfer will vary between different vocational education and training (VET) providers and institutions in Australia.
Does Asset College have gift vouchers?

What is LLN?
LLN stands for language, literacy and numeracy. LLN assessments are required for entry to most of Asset’s courses.
Can I bring my child along to my training course?
Unfortunately no. We are an adult learning environment and as such cannot accommodate children unless they are also attending training. As an example, firearms safety courses allow for minors from the age of 13 to attend.
Can I have my preferred name on my certificate?
No. The name on your certificate must be your legal name and must match what is on your USI record. You can opt to add your middle name on your certificate but we are not able to make any further changes.
Can I bring my support worker along to the course?
You can bring your support worker along to the course so long as we have the room capacity available while considering other students. Please contact us to discuss prior to your course date.
You will still need to be able to read and write to the level required in your course and the job outcome you are trying to achieve, without assistance from your support worker.
I have a concession card. Can I get a discount on my training?
Our courses are the same price for everyone.
