If you need extra points to gain your senior certificate in your state of study, completing the ICT20120 qualification may gain you additional points. You can complete the Certificate II in Applied Digital Technologies either while you are at school or even after you have completed but and still need additional points to gain your Grade 12 Certificate.

You can either enrol online directly as a student with LearnMe or contact your school who can inquire on your behalf. Your school may already be part of our School Partnership Program. We are happy to speak to someone at your school on your behalf. Just contact us and we can discuss this with you.

To determine exactly how many Grade 12 points you might gain you should speak with the Student Pathways Coordinator at your school or contact your State’s department for Grade 12 such as the QCAA in Queensland.


Do you already have skills in IT? If so, you could be holding a nationally recognised qualification through our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.

Getting your IT certificate is easy and you can do it right from your desk. Using our online skills recognition tool, we can easily take you step by step through proving your skills without you having to leave your home or office.

Our online trainer will guide you through the recognition process one simple step at a time. They will ask you some questions to prove your knowledge on each subject, and then you’ll have the to opportunity demonstrate your skills and upload your evidence from your own computer. Providing references, your resume or work history, and examples of work you have done will also help the recognition process and our trainer will give you opportunities to include these as evidence.

You don’t have to know it ALL to enrol in a skills recognition course. For every subject that you CAN prove your skills, we can give you a nationally recognised credit in that course. So even if you don’t quite have all the skills, we can provide you with credits on the subjects that you do, and offer training on anything you might need further assistance with a simple upgrade to our course content for any units that require it. You can get started with an RPL enrolment very quickly. As soon as we have processed your enrolment application you’ll be able to get started right away.

I am halfway through my course and I am very happy with the support and professionalism I have so far received. I initially approached a TAFE college to do the same course but did not find them easy to communicate with the team at Learn Me provided me with instant contact and set me up ready to start my course all on the same day. Thank you!
