Are your courses free?

Unlike a TAFE, which is government owned, Open Colleges is a privately owned RTO (Registered Training Organisation.) This means that we are an independent entity, and we don’t receive any government funding. For this reason, our courses are not free. If you have any questions about our pricing, please feel free to contact our friendly Enrolment Consultants.

Are your courses nationally recognised?

icon

Yes, they are! Open Colleges offers nationally recognised Certificates and Diplomas under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). This means that our Certificates and Diplomas meet specific national standards and have been developed in consultation with industry experts to provide the most workplace relevant training. Qualifications from Open Colleges also carry the same level of recognition as courses delivered on-campus in a classroom setting. So, when you study with OC, you can rest assured that you are receiving quality education.

When can I start the course?
