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 doesn't make you automatically eligible for the RMIT Graduate Certificate program but if you're eligible to enrol and do that, successful completion of the CCCA can count towards 25% of that program.
