  • Are ACCM Courses Nationally Recognised?

  • Course fees?

    The fastest way to determine the fee is to use the fee calculator on the relevant course page, just look for a green button that says "Check Price" and press it for more information.

    Course fees may vary depending on a few factors:

    • The state you live or work in
    • Residency/Visa Status (if not an Australian citizen, permanent resident or New Zealand citizen)
    • If you are still at school
    • Whether or not you have completed a qualification since leaving school
    • If you are receiving any Government welfare benefits


    For example, in NSW there is a subsidised program called Smart and Skilled. This program provides a government subsidy towards course fees for NSW residents and workers; meaning the course fee may be significantly lower.

    Contact the College on 1300 515 321 if you have any questions about specific fees.
