How do I apply for a credit transfer?


A credit transfer is the recognition of equivalence between a previously obtained unit and a unit that you are wishing to obtain. A credit transfer reduces the amount of learning required to achieve a qualification.

  • AOT will assess your credit transfer application to ensure it meets with the relevant training package rules of the course you are currently enrolled.
  • You will be required to provide a combination of the following information to support your credit transfer application:
    • Qualification certificate; both front page and transcript of results (list of each individual unit you completed)
    • Statement of Attainment / Transcript of Results
  • For a credit transfer to occur the application must be for the same unit, which usually has the same code or similar code. You can check this with AOT Support.
  • AOT will authenticate your provided documentation directly with the issuing training organisation (unless you completed the units with AOT),
    • If you have your course/s registered against your Unique Student Identifier (USI), please login into your USI account, click on 'Provide your USI’ and scroll down to the 'Set up access to your USI/Permissions' option. You will need to select 'Add Organisation' and search for Accredited Online Training, to give permission to us to view and verify your transcript.
    • If it is not registered against your USI please complete and attach the Consent for Verification of Information form with your request.
  • The credit transfer process cannot be finalised until AOT receive a positive response from the issuing training organisation.
  • You will be advised of your credit transfer outcome as soon as we can verify that your previous results are authentic.
