VCE: Certificate III qualifications provide credit at VCE Units 1 to 4 level. Each completed 90 nominal hours of training provides one VCE unit of credit. Credit accrues in the following sequence: Units 1, 2, 3, 4, 3 and 4 up to a maximum of six VCE units.

ATAR: This subject does not have a study score and therefore cannot contribute towards the student’s primary four. Students who receive a Units 3 & 4 sequence may be eligible for a 10% increment towards their ATAR (10% of the lowest result of your primary four scaled studies). Please note the student must already have English and three other fully scored VCE/VET subjects to create the primary four.
