Frequently Asked Questions

Can I do a course If I’m receiving Centerlink/Human Services payments?

Yes. Most courses are perfect for people on Centrelink. Apply for one of the courses to talk to a Course Advisor about it and get more info.

How long do the courses go for?

On average 12 months, but some can be shorter or longer, depending on the course.

What is the difference between a Certificate and Diploma?

Certificate Programs

A Certificate Program is specialised in one specific skill or area, which you’ll study and learn in one or two courses. These programs don’t offer a broad overview of a field or industry, and are often a good option for someone who already has a degree or work experience in the field.

Let’s say, for example, that you’re an accountant with a bachelor’s degree. You want to get into forensic accounting because it’s a hot new part of the industry, but don’t want to go back to school for another degree. A forensic accounting certification will build on the accounting skills you already have, and teach you the need-to-know basics of forensic accounting.

Diploma Programs

A Diploma program, is longer and more in-depth. They allow you to study a specific area of specialisation and get a good overview of the field, without earning an actual degree.

These comprehensive programs are a great option for someone who wants to make a career change and get into a new field. If you were interested, for example, in a graphic design career, a graphic design diploma program would consist of multiple classes that would teach you fundamentals of graphic design, as well as different computer programs and technologies utilised in that industry.

What qualification levels do you offer?

There are different course levels we have access to at Get Course. They are:

  • Certificate – I, II, III, or IV
  • Diploma
  • Double or Dual Diploma
  • Advanced Diploma
Are the courses really hard?

All of the courses are designed so that most people should be able to do them. Training Organisations will usually ask you to undertake a test to establish your ability to complete the course.

Do I need to have done any other courses before I do one of these courses?

Prerequisites are required for some courses, so it’s best to check what they are by referring to the course pages.

Can I do my course by distance or online?

You absolutely can!

Where are your campuses?

Get Course doesn’t have campuses, but the training providers we work with do! Depending on the course you decide to do, will determine where the campuses are. Many of the students do choose to do distance or online learning though – this is a feature available with most of the courses. Speak to a course advisor for more details.

How much time per week would I need to spend on doing my course?

From 15-20 hours per week is about what you would want to spend on it to ensure you complete it on time.

How much do the courses cost?

All the courses differ in price. Best bet is to talk to a course advisor or get more information on your particular course.

I’ve never heard of Get Course, can I trust you?

Yes you can trust us. We have helped over 2,500 students just like you get accepted into the course of their choice.

We try to make what education options are available to average Australians easy to understand, rather than making it complicated. This can be why our offers can sound too good to be true!

I searched for Get Course in the R.T.O data base, why cant I find you?

Get Course isn’t a registered training organisation (RTO), we are a marketing agent who works on behalf of multiple RTO’s. We help people find the perfect course for them based on their lifestyle, goals and passions plus we help people with the enrolment process so they have the highest chance of getting accepted by the RTO for the course they want.

We are always adding new RTO’s to our relationship lists so you can get access to more courses all the time!

How good are the courses you offer?


Get Course has relationships with a number of quality well known training providers who can get you certified.

Our job is to help get you into the course, we don’t deliver the course itself, but you can rest assured our training providers are pretty awesome.

If you are still worried that you will get into a course and not be happy with it, feel safe because you are entitled to what they call a “Census date”. This basically means that if you don’t feel the course is the right one for you, then you can back out before that date without incurring any debt. A “census date” is a little bit like a free trial for the course. These dates can vary between 7 days to months before the first census date after starting your course. Just remember that if you pass that date without telling the training provider you are cancelling then you must pay for that part of the course.

Why do you ask for so many personal details information from me?

We only ask for details that we need to get you into your course. Most of the details are required from the training provider and to get you the funding you need for your course. As simple as we try to make it, these are the details we need from you for an application into a government approved course.

Why do you use use simple and non-technical language unlike other education websites?

We believe that education is only any good if its understood. While traditional education can talk in technical speech, we like to keep it simple so that everybody can understand what options are available to them.
We like to think we make the complicated seem simple.

Casual and simple to understand is what we like. ?
