Transition Your Skills into Recognised Qualifications! 25% discount



DVA can fund your Qualification

Being competitive in the labour market is a key challenge veterans and injured service people can face during their transition into civilian life. While many skills are obtained during service, many are not recognised in the civilian space. This means your resume may not be considered by employers if you do not possess the right qualifications.

Under DVA funding, Veterans and injured service people can access education as part of their rehabilitation plan. This is because DVA understand that qualifications are key to achieving sustainable employment.

3CIR works in partnership with accredited Registered Training Organisation Asset College (RTO#31718) and can provide educational services eligible for DVA funding.


3CIR can work with DVA for:

Defence Force Transition Program (DFTP)

Part of this program involves career transition training to help you obtain gainful employment after discharge. If you are eligible, you’ll receive a contribution of up to $5,320 to help fund upskilling or training. You can find out more about it here

Defence Force Transition Program (DFTP)
Vocational Rehabilitation 3ICR & DVA
Vocational Rehabilitation

Retraining and further education may be part of your rehabilitation packaged if you’re injured and eligible for this program. DVA will assist in funding for any short course or qualification provided it is through a Registered Training Organisation. You can find out more information here.

Ready to take the next step?

Complete our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) assessment form to find out if you’re eligible for course credit or qualification based on your previous education, training, and experience. Our RPL assessment form is quick and easy to complete and provides you with an opportunity to fast track your learning and save time and money.


Upgrading students nationally and globally

There are so many reasons to consider undertaking the process and applying for Recognition of Prior Learning. Not only can it significantly reduce your time spent studying a course but it can also allow you to become eligible for courses you may not have the previous formal qualifications needed to meet the criteria. As a general rule, if you’ve undertaken a formal course, the AQF has created a guide that Registered Training Organisations can use to decide how much of your RPL course credit can count towards a qualification

The sooner you apply, the better! While RPL is much quicker than traditional study, just how quick depends a lot on you. In order to gauge what qualifications you will be able to obtain, our assessors need an idea of your previous experience and skills. This requires evidence and the more you provide the easier and quicker the process is. Usually if you provide enough supporting documents or information, your RPL qualification can take around 4 weeks to complete. Luckily there are plenty of different ways you can supply evidence of your skills and knowledge, see our comprehensive list below!

We know that education should never be a barrier to obtaining any qualification and we work hard at 3CIR to ensure our students can access the funds they need. That’s why we offer three payment plan options: 

  • AfterPay
  • Payright
  • ZeeFi

To reduce the costs of tuition, many universities allow you to count your past education and work experiences towards a degree. If approved, learning credits can help you complete your degree quicker, saving you money along the way.
