Entry Requirements

To participate in the program, you must provide a certified copy of your TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment certificate and transcripts at enrolment. 


To assist prospective students to determine whether a course is suitable and appropriate for the individual needs, Box Hill Institute will assess all students’ language, literacy and numeracy and digital literacy by asking you to undertake a self-assessment review prior to the enrolment.

A course advisor will discuss the outcomes of the review and make recommendations about whether the course is suitable for you, and identify additional support where required.
