Accreditation

This Career Coaching, Counselling and Assessment (CCCA) course is linked to the RMIT Graduate Certificate in Career Education and Development.

Upon successful completion of the CCCA course and the agreed assessment tasks, students will be eligible for recognition of prior learning towards the foundation course Practices in Career Design (HWSS2240).

Eligibility for the RMIT Graduate Certificate in Career Education and Development is assessed through the standard RMIT admissions process and students planning to progress towards this Graduate Certificate should check their eligibility and apply directly through RMIT.
 
In other words, doing the CCCA and its assessment tasks doesn't automatically make you eligible for the RMIT Graduate Certificate program but if you're eligible to enrol and you do enrol, successful completion of the CCCA and its assessment can count towards 25% of the RMIT program.
 
The assessment comprises two tasks and engagement in discussion during the hybrid live online or in-person CCCA. It attracts an administrative fee of $250.
