Welcome
Charles Darwin University (CDU) is the Northern Territory’s leading education provider. We deliver training and education to more than 20,000 students. People come from throughout the Territory, all states of Australia as well as overseas to study at one of CDU’s eight campuses or centres. Most CDU students study Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses that qualify them to work in a wide range of occupations and careers. At CDU, VET courses can also provide pathways to studying at Higher Education level. Our VET courses will help you to develop a range of work skills that are often in high demand in the current marketplace. No matter who you are or where you are in your life, CDU can help to change your world. This guide provides information on course offerings. Delivery of VET courses is flexible and varies according to demand, location and circumstance. Students are encouraged to refer to the University’s website at www.cdu.edu.au/courses for the most up-to-date list of courses on offer.

Course options
Certificate I Certificate I qualifications cover basic skills required in some industries. They are usually offered in remote locations or through schools and are rarely available to urban groups as a stand alone qualification Certificate II Certificate II qualifications are generally an introductory level. Certificate III Certificate III qualifications provide a skill qualification for a job and are the level of an apprenticeship. Certificate IV Certificate IV qualifications are often seen as the first level qualification for a supervisory position. Successful achievement at this level entitles a student to up to 40 credit points advanced standing in an undergraduate course in a similar field. Diploma Diplomas are a high level qualification and successful achievement at this level entitles a student to up to 80 credit points advanced standing in an undergraduate course in a similar field. Short Courses Short courses can be a group of units which lead to a particular skill or a nonaccredited course which focuses on a particular skill.

Length of courses
Because people study in so many different ways, we can only give a general guide here. Where people are studying full-time, they could take a shorter time to complete their course. • Certificates I, II, III and IV on average take from six months to one year • Diplomas may take from 1 year to 18 months • Apprenticeships take three years on average

Enrolling in a VET course
Regardless of whether you are a new or a continuing student – if you want to study in 2010, you need to enrol. Once you have selected the course(s) in which you would like to enrol, you should arrange a time with the relevant team leader or delegate to discuss and complete your enrolment. You can find the enrolment form on the web at www.cdu.edu.au/studentnet/ adminforms.html#vet. Remember, you need a staff member to approve your enrolment. Most certificate courses do not have specific entry requirements, but to ensure that you enrol in the most appropriate course, you should speak to a lecturer. If you speak English as a second language and require help preparing for VET study, visit the Adult Migrant English Program website for further information. W: www.cdu.edu.au/cduvet/languageliteracy/amep.html

Methods of study
There are several study options to choose from with CDU. We encourage you to talk to CDU about what is the best method for you. • Full-time • Part-time • Self-paced • On-line using Learnline • On the job • Seminar • Block or day release for apprentices • A combination of the above Please contact CDU prior to enrolling to find out what is available in your chosen field and to discuss your options.

What fees do I need to pay?
Fees apply to most students undertaking VET courses at CDU. Information on nominal hours for each course can be found on the CDU website. Australian students living in the Northern Territory (NT) are eligible to enrol in NT Government-subsidised places. Those living outside the Northern Territory will normally pay a higher fee. Specific fees are posted on the CDU website. Some higher level courses eg Certificate IV or Diploma may not be subsidised and will cost more. Contact CDU for more information on course fees.

6

Some people may be exempt from fees for various reasons eg. those who are unemployed, have a low income or live in a remote location. When you are enrolling you can check if this applies to you. International students are charged fees at different rates to domestic students, and are not normally eligible for NT Government-subsidised places. Please contact CDU to find out about international fees or check the website www.cdu.edu.au/international If you have trouble paying the fees in a single amount, the University has an instalment plan available for all VET students whose fees are at least $100. If you would like to find out more information about this, please contact CDU.

Please note
At the time of going to print some of these qualifications were being reviewed. As a result, some of these courses may be renamed. We recommend you check the CDU website for up-to-date listings. W: www.cdu.edu.au/courses

Skills recognition – recognition of prior learning (RPL) and credit transfer
CDU acknowledges that many people have acquired knowledge and skills through previous training, work or life experience and will consider this when a person enrols. Visit the RPL site www.cdu.edu.au/aqpvet/vetresources. html#Assessmentandrecognition. Likewise with skills achieved at another registered training organisation, students may apply for exemption or recognition of some units www.cdu.edu.au/studentnet/ adminforms.html.

FaQs

What is Vocational Education and Training (VET)? If you’ve come from interstate, you’re probably familiar with TAFE. In the NT, Charles Darwin University (CDU) VET courses are the equivalent. VET courses offer hands-on, practical skills that are occupation focussed. When should I enrol? We have two peak enrolment times – January/ February and July/August, but many courses accept continuous enrolments, so contact the lecturer any time. How much does it cost to study at CDU? Refer to fees section on the CDU website. Can I do VET courses part-time? Most VET courses offer flexible study options, allowing you to fit study in with your other commitments. What is an Apprenticeship? This refers to a training style which combines work and study. You must have an employer and you must sign a contract of training with Australian Apprenticeships NT. For further information refer to www.aacnt.com.au. Do I need to enrol in a whole course? No. You can enrol in a single unit or a group of units – it is entirely up to you.
