2. ACCM College is responsible for the issuance of the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) certification documentation
This means we are responsible for issuing you the qualification testamur or statement of attainment upon finalisation of your course (once all invoicing has been paid).
As the Learner, there are specific rights you must be made specifically aware of under the Standards for RTOs 2015:
1. The details of our Complaints and Appeals process which can be found here ACCM's Complaint Policy

Online learning is not for everyone.
Before enrolling consider:
Although we offer high level support - if online isn't for you - it isn't for you...
It is in your best interests to choose another provider if online isn't for you.
Assessment is the process to award a student competency in unit/s of competency.
For a student to be assessed as competent, we must ensure the student has:
Each subject will have a range of formative and summative assessment activities selected based on the units of competency.
Common formative assessment methods used to assess foundation knowledge include written short answer questions, multiple choice questions and match the correct answer questions. These are typed into the online learning platform WebclassM. Case Study scenarios are often used to give relevant context to these questions.
The main or summative assessment activities are often more skills based and practical activities such as:
In higher level qualifications the summative assessments might include activities like:
Instructions for all assessment activities are provided, along with information about what the expectation is to achieve competency.
We use a range of methods to gather evidence of competency ie evidence of your completion of the assessment activities.
For typical question and answer activities you will type the answers into the online learning platform WebclassM.
Role Plays will be conducted by phone or video calls eg zoom or MS Teams.
Many practical activities are evidenced by you completing simulations within the online learning system eg data input or completing a sample workplace form or spreadsheet.
Some subjects require specific interactions. These may be addressed by email exchanges, a group video conference or use of a specific application eg IT Ticket System.
Observations can be by live video or a recorded video where we can see the participant was you.
In general, we have identified assessment methods that are suitable for remote assessment.
Each subject will have specific Assessment Resources and Assessment Conditions based on the unit/s of competency.
In general, we will provide the required assessment resources and establish the required conditions.
These may typically include:
Each subject will give you an overview of the summative assessment activities at the start; and specific activities will include or reference the required resources. The instructions will disclose any specific conditions to be applied.
You will however be required to:
One of the challenges of online assessment is ensuring the student is the person undertaking the assessments. Yes, we know you would need to be pretty rich and desperate to pay someone to do your Cert 3 course - but we do need to check...
The ACCM process has a number of ways we do this that you should be aware of:
These processes may mean you are asked to identify yourself during the assessments eg
Lastly, and importantly, we ask your Workplace Supervisor (for employment related enrolments) to agree with us about competency before it is awarded.

A traineeship is great way to develop the skills of your workforce.
Traineeships combine time at work with training, and can be full-time, part-time or school-based. Trainees must be an Australian Citizen or permanent resident visa holder. Each state determines what subsidised training is available for your trainees in that state.
