How do I apply for a course and the Enrolment Process?

The AILC will be in contact with you to confirm if a position is available for the upcoming course. All student enquiries are placed on a register; from there the first 35 on the register will be selected to fill the course.

What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI) and do I have to create one?
If you are undertaking nationally recognised training with the AILC or any other registered training organisation (RTO), you will need to have a unique student identifier.
A USI gives you access to your online USI account which is made up of ten numbers and letters. It will look something like this: 4BC99HY2B4
You can access your USI account online anywhere anytime by using an electronic device.
You will be required to obtain a USI prior to commencement of course. The AILC will not be able to print your qualification without a USI. To create your USI, you will need to go to www.usi.gov.au
Can I still participate if I have a disability or medical condition?
Please contact the AILC and we will organise the appropriate support.
What happens if I have low literacy or numeracy levels?
Learners who are identified as having a low level in LLN will be required to undergo an interview to determine whether AILC can provide the required support.
Do I have to complete assessments for my course?
You will be required to undertake assessments as part of your course. These assessments include written work, observations, presentations and group work/activities.
Can I apply for recognition of prior learning?
All students undertaking accredited training with AILC are able to apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL). You will be required to undertake an application for this form of assessment prior to commencement of course. There are costs associated with the recognition process, please contact us for more information.
Do I need to provide anything to do this course?
All students will be supplied with the following course materials:
- Student Handbook
- Student manual
- Stationary including pens, pencils, paper
If learners have access to a laptop/ipad we recommend they bring it on course, however it is not a requirement. WIFI is only provided in the training room. If you wish to complete work in your accommodation/ at home you will be required to purchase WIFI.
Will I get a certificate when I finish?
The AILC will only issue nationally recognised qualifications to students who have provided a USI, completed all assessment work and been deemed competent.
If students have been deemed competent in all assessments, AILC will issue your certificate and transcript within 30 calendar days of the completion of the marking process.
What happens if I have to withdraw from the course?
Students who are unable to attend will be required to officially withdraw from their course through written response. There are no costs to students for withdrawals and students will have the opportunity to return and complete the course at a later date.
Where is the course held?
Locations for AILC courses vary as we deliver Australia-wide. All students who are offered a position on course will receive an acceptance letter confirming the location of training.
How many other students will be on course with me?
Student numbers vary. A typical course can have up to 30 students.
Can I complete my course online or by correspondence?
At this stage, AILC does not offer these courses online, however we are working towards this goal.
Where can I get information on complaints and appeals?
All students have the right to put in a complaint or an appeal while on course. The AILC takes complaints and appeals very seriously. The complaints and appeals policies and forms are available by clicking here.
Once I have started my course, how do I get access to my student records?

ABSTUDY accommodation, meals and travel
