Qualifications in these categories are managed by the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) which is the national set of standards which assures nationally consistent, high-quality training and assessment services for the clients of Australia’s vocational education and training system. In addition, CIT is also an accredited provider of higher education, and has permission to deliver graduate certificates, graduate diplomas and bachelor degrees and is promoted through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).Students in these courses may be eligible to receive FEE HELP[6] (formerly HECS) in the same way university students can.
