Certificate 3 how quick can it be completed?

Post by MaceyH070 » Mon Jun 24, 2019 2:52 pm


I have recently started Cert 3 in Childcare, I am wanting to start in the industry ASAP & have recently taken some time off from my normal job to complete.
How quick could it be done?

Thank you

You are able to find a cert 3 job when you are currently studying since you will be actively working towards your qualification.

Here is some more information regarding this:

Certificate III
You are considered actively working towards an approved certificate III level qualification if you can provide documentary evidence from the course provider to your approved provider that you are:

enrolled in the course and have started study
making satisfactory progress towards completing the course
meeting the requirements to maintain enrolment.

Reference: Actively Working Towards A Qualification

Hope this helps!
