Students can choose to pay up to $1500 of their student contribution fees upfront at enrolment. Further payments of up to $1500 can be made at later stages of a student's enrolment. ACCCO accepts the following payment methods:
Students can choose to enter into a payment plan arrangement to pay off their student contribution fees in smaller amounts over a period of time.
Students entering into an ACCCO payment plan have the option of fortnightly or monthly payments. Students with contributions fees of over $1500 can also request a weekly payment plan.
Payment plans require an initial upfront payment towards their student contribution fees to set up the plan, and then each payment period a recurring payment amount is direct debited from the student's nominated account.
Students are given recurring payment amount options when setting up their plan.
Example plans are given below.
|Upfront Payment Amount||Recurring Payment Details|
|$500.00||$50.00||$25.00 x 18 fortnightly payments|
|$800.00||$100.00||$50.00 x 14 monthly payments|
|$4630.00||$310.00||$80 x 54 weekly payments|

Please contact our enrolments team on 1300 139 406 to discuss payment options applicable to you.
Students that are not receiving any funding for their course can choose to pay as they go. This is where a student will pay the fees for
each unit of competency prior to commencing it.
Before entering into an apprenticeship, the student must find an employer willing to take them on as a trainee or apprentice. You and your employer will need to sign a formal training contract.
You can find an employer by:
Your Apprenticeship Network Provider will help you sign a training contract with your employer. They will work with you and your employer to identify the training and support you need. The training contract may commence on the same day that employment commences or may commence at a later date.
As part of your traineeship you will undertake a nationally recognised qualification with ACCCO who will provide the training for the Australian Trainee.
