3CIR Services FAQs

Yes! We’ve been operating for over 7 years and helping people get qualified through Online Study or RPL. 3CIR is an authorised third party of Asset College (RTO #31718), which makes us similar to a franchise. Because of this partnership, we only offer a selection of courses in our field of expertise.

OPTION 1 – Study Online
Study anywhere anytime. With just a computer and an internet connection, you can learn at a pace that suits you. Just work through the reading material, units and assessment activities whenever you are able.

OPTION 2 – Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
You can use your skills and current knowledge to gain a qualification through RPL. Depending on your level of experience, you may not require any additional study. RPL is best for those who have worked a number of years and do not have time to start a qualification from scratch.

OPTION 3 – Study Online at our Facilities
Complete the same course online at our training partner’s facilities using their resources and equipment for free! 3CIR or we’ll help you with any additional needs. Note: Subject to availability, bookings are essential

OPTION 4 – Study in Class
Depending on your course we may be able to arrange a face-to-face study option. Contact us today to find out more information.

If you already have work experience in a field similar to the qualification you would like, RPL is the faster and cheaper option.

however, if you are changing careers or studying a new subject with little previous experience, online study could be the best option. In either case, it’s worth conducting a free RPL assessment to see what you are already eligible for to potentially save time studying.

Made possible through the Australian Qualifications Framework, RPL is the process of having your previous experience converted to national qualifications. It saves time as you don’t have to study what you already know. With the right previous experience, you could receive a qualification in weeks, not months.

A qualification is a great way to verify your skills and knowledge. If you’re looking for a promotion or to switch roles in your industry, the right qualification can demonstrate to employers that you are committed to professional development!

Credit transfer is a great way to save money on your studies. If you’ve previously completed formal qualifications, for example at TAFE or another VET provider, then it’s possible that those units will count towards the same qualification as what we offer here – although not all courses allow this!

To have skills formally recognised, our assessors need to verify your experience. This can be done in a number of ways. The easiest is through documentation and evidence. Any previous position descriptions, performance appraisals etc can be used to for this, even photos of you doing your job can be of help. If no documentation is available, you may need to sit a short exam or complete a piece of assessment to verify your knowledge.
