ACBC takes great pride in helping you succeed beyond your qualification. Our career development services include career guidance, resume preparation and interview techniques. Our Work Placement program is an influential employment tool giving you the practical skills and real-world experience that employers value.
RPL refers to the opportunity to apply for exemption or reduction of core units based on previous experience. ACBC has to count previously gained competencies towards your current studies. You may be granted RPL for;
- Formal training or study
- Pertinent work experience
- Applicable life experience.
RPL is available to all students enrolling at ACBC. Successfully securing RPL will accelerate your course completion and may reduce associated fees due to waived course components. Read more about our RPL process here.
Yes. ACBC is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver and assess selected qualifications. That means we must comply with national quality standards. Our RTO status also ensures every ACBC course is nationally recognised training.

Our Work Placement program is an integral part of the ACBC learning approach. Every full-time student can undertake an optional practicum one day per week for up to 20 weeks with a host employer. Many students secure full-time employment with their hosts on the strength of their Work Placement. The excellent level of employability skills that result from our Work Placement program makes ACBC graduates highly sought after.
Your attire is a reflection on both yourself and ACBC. In keeping with our commitment to thoroughly prepare you for the workforce, we do uphold a dress code. Please wear smart and conservative business attire for both in-class learning and work placement.
ACBC courses attract several financial assistance options. Availability depends on your individual situation and the course you choose. Potential financial assistance schemes include:
- Austudy: financial help for full-time students and Australian apprentices
- Centrelink Youth Allowance: financial help for full-time students and Australian apprentices aged 16 to 24
- Instalment plans: ACBC offers a payment plan option for eligible students and is pleased to discuss this further with you.
Financing studies can be a concern for many students. At ACBC we offer plenty of support to alleviate associated stress and customise individual solutions. If you are experiencing payment challenges, please contact our College Campus Manager.
