Extension to your qualification enrolment
If a student fails to submit their assessments by their enrolment end date and does not seek an extension their enrolment they will be withdrawn. Students retain the right to contact AIM after this point to have their enrolment re-commenced if exceptional circumstances apply. In addition to an individual student’s circumstances, reinstatement of enrolment is subject to whether individual units of competency have been deleted or superseded from a Training Package. Enrolment extensions may be granted to students who are experiencing difficulty or hardship in completing their assessment. This can include: 

  • Medical circumstances: where a student’s medical condition has changed to such an extent that he or she is unable to undertake the assessment
  • Family/personal circumstances: death or severe medical problems within a family, or unforeseen family financial difficulties, so that it is unreasonable to expect a student to complete their assessment
  • Work commitments

Extension Period
The maximum extension period granted from the original due date will be:

  • Short Course - four weeks
  • Qualification - three months

The extension period granted will become the final due date for any outstanding assessments and late assessments will not be accepted. If a student fails to submit their assessment by the final due date their enrolment will be withdrawn. After this time students will need to re-enrol in the course or complete the assessment via RPL. Standard enrolment or RPL charges will apply.

Extension Application
If you wish to apply for an extension to your qualification you must do so before your due date expires. Please submit your request via email to Student Support, where necessary include your Managers approval.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning is the formal acknowledgement of your existing skills and knowledge. It’s based on the premise that you do not need to undertake training for skills you already possess. Your current skills and knowledge may have been obtained through:

  • Formal training
  • Work experience
  • Life experience

The RPL application process requires you to provide evidence of, or demonstrate, your current ability to perform the requirements of a subject(s) within your course. If you can show that you have the required skills or knowledge then you will be granted RPL, and exempt from completing the work required for that subject. Refer to AIM’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policy on the website for more detail.

For Higher Education students seeking Recognition of Prior Learning based on experience only, an administration fee applies per unit for successful applications. Please click here to view the current fees.
