Jobs and Skills WA is the way the State Government, through the Department, prioritises its investment in training to focus on courses that equip people to take up jobs that are, or will be, in high demand. Priorities include apprenticeships, eligible traineeships and priority industry qualifications.
ACCCO is an approved training provider offering Early Childhood Education and Care funded courses. Please see further information on the Jobs and Skills WA website here.

The Jobs & Skills WA Priority Industry Training for individuals (PIT) Program does not fund units completed in an RPL pathway. Students can apply for RPL for one or more units, however, all units completed under a RPL pathway will not be funded and students will need to pay for these units at ACCCO’s fee for service rate.
Credit transfer (sometimes known as advanced standing) is awarded when a student has completed the units required for a qualification at
another Registered Training Organisation. This may reduce the amount of time it will take you to gain a qualification, and reduce the
overall cost. ACCCO provides credit transfer free of charge. Read more
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|

each unit of competency prior to commencing it.
Once you have made the decision to apply for a qualification, you will need to complete an online enrolment
