EXTRA QCE POINTS
If you need extra points to gain your senior certificate in your state of study, completing the ICT20115 qualification may gain you additional points. You can complete the Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology either while you are at school or even after you have completed but still need additional QCE Points to gain your HSC (High School Certificate).
You can either enrol online directly as student with LearnMe or contact your school who can inquire on your behalf. Your school may already be part of our School Partnership Program. To determine exactly how many QCE points you might gain you should speak with the Student Pathways Coordinator at your school or contact your State’s department for the HSC such as the QCAA in Queenslan
Do you already have skills in IT? If so, you could be holding a nationally recognised qualification.
Getting your IT certificate is easy and you can do it right from your desk. Using our proprietary 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 ask you to demonstrate your skills from your own computer. Providing references, your resume or work history, and examples of work you have done can 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 enroll 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.
Before you enrol in the course, please view our Student Handbook for our policies on refunds, privacy and more.
