Students enrolling with FiT will be made aware of the recognition of qualifications policy by FiT staff at the time of enrolment to offer the opportunity of recognition of relevant qualifications or statements of attainment prior to the commencement of training. FiT trainers will remind students of the policy progressively throughout the duration of their course.
When a student presents an AQF qualification or statement of attainment to a trainer or staff member, a copy of the certificates will be taken and submitted to FiT for verification. FiT will verify the authenticity of the qualification or statement of attainment.
The verified copy of the qualification or statement of attainment is placed in the student’s file. Once verification of the qualification or statement of attainment has been established, FiT staff will inform the student and offer exemption from the relevant unit(s) of competency. Staff will ensure the student is aware of and understands what component(s) of their training and assessment are affected.
FiT staff will update the student’s records accordingly.
