A qualification is a formal testamur that is awarded to a student who successfully completes the full requirements of the qualification in which they are enrolled. Qualifications are awarded with an Academic Transcript/Record of Results on the back of the Qualification if the course has been completed. Qualifications are individually coded with the unique identifier number, have an embossed ACCCO logo and display the Nationally Recognised Training logo.
Statement of Attainment -
'A Statement of Attainment will be awarded if units towards a qualification have been completed, but the full qualification is not yet complete. Statement of Attainments are individually coded with the unique identifier number.
In alignment to the ASQA Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015, qualifications and Statement of Attainments are issued by ACCCO within 30 calendar days of a student being assessed as meeting the requirements of the training product if the training program in which the learner is enrolled is complete, and providing all agreed fees the learner owes to the RTO have been paid. Timeframes for issuing qualifications/Statement of Attainments may vary pending contractual requirements under funded training contracts. For example: under a Smart and Skilled contract, ACCCO is required to issue a Statement of Attainment (partial completion of a qualification) within 21 days of notification of a discontinuation of enrolment.
Please note: All other documents issued or completed by ACCCO staff (including study plans, training record books or similar) are for internal record keeping purposes only. Employers, regulatory agencies and industry agencies may use these for indicative purposes only. Only Qualifications and Statements of Attainment should be considered as evidence of completion of a nationally recognised qualification.
ACCCO provides a qualification validation service to prevent the forgery of Qualifications. Under this scheme, if a person provides the details of an already issued ACCCO qualification including the name on the qualification, the person listed on the qualification, the date it was issued and unique identifier number, ACCCO will provide a 'yes' or 'no' answer to confirm the validity of the qualification.
All qualifications issued by ACCCO contain a unique barcode that can be scanned via any QR Scanner application, which will enable you to
commence the verification process.
