All accredited courses must adhere to the standards set by the Australian Skills and Quality Authority (ASQA). According to ASQA, accreditation is formal confirmation that the course:

  • Is nationally recognised
  • Meets an established industry, enterprise, educational, legislative or community need
  • Provides appropriate competency outcomes and satisfactory basis for assessment

    Is assigned appropriately to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) where it leads to a qualification.


TrainSmart Australia uses a competency based marking system which assesses whether a student can demonstrate the learning outcomes of the unit/question. Assessments are marked ‘Satisfactory’ and ‘Not Yet Satisfactory’. 

Being marked as Not Yet Satisfactory is not the end of your world! It just means you get another shot at submitting an answer.

All of our courses are offered through the ‘Trainer-Directed-Learning” model. In this format, trainers will be in direct contact with you to assist and direct you through your online assessments and workshops.

Your trainer will set the expectations and timeframes for our assessments based around your experience, life commitments and availability to complete your practical assessments.
