CAL is a Nationally Accredited Training Provider

The College for Adult Learning is proud to be an established Registered Training Organisation (RTO) providing nationally accredited and endorsed training qualifications.

About VET

The Australian vocational education and training (VET) system is recognised as among the most sophisticated in the world because it is:

  • Industry led – employers and industry representatives define what outcome is required from training.
  • National – the system is jointly managed by state, territory and Australian governments.
  • Client focused – it is flexible and relevant and responsive to client needs.

VET qualifications are developed in consultation with the industry sectors and their associations – including the Australian HR Institute (AHRI) and the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) – so you can be certain that the units are specially designed to deliver the skills that your industry needs.

Qualifications are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure they remain relevant to world class best practice models and incorporate the latest thinking from around the world and, of course in Australian workplaces.
