Choosing a training provider

When deciding on a training provider, it’s important to shop around because costs, services and study options can vary considerably.​​ Here are some things to think about:​

Are they registered?

All training providers listed on this website are Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). This means they are registered by the Australian or Victorian Government and meet government quality standards.

How much will it cost?

The fees charged may vary as training providers are free to set their own fees.

Search for courses and see the tuition fees charged by different training providers for your preferred course and compare options.
