An accredited course has been assessed by ASQA (Australian Skills Quality Authority) as compliant with the Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012 and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Accreditation is formal confirmation that the course:
- is nationally recognised
- meets an established industry, enterprise, educational, legislative or community need
- provides appropriate competency outcomes and a satisfactory basis for assessment
- meets national quality assurance requirements
- is aligned appropriately to the AQF where it leads to a qualification.
Each VET accredited course is allocated a national code and is listed on the national register, training.gov.au. Upon successful completion of an accredited course, students will receive a Statement of Attainment. Non-accredited courses are not nationally recognised and do not require completion of a competency based assessment.
Non-accredited courses are designed to develop skills and knowledge without the need for a formal qualification. Upon successful completion of a non-accredited course, students receive a Certificate of Completion which can be used as evidence for ongoing professional development.
The Micro Brewing program has been developed for those wishing to pursue a career as a brewer and as such has brewery specific subjects. The Brew Pub course has been developed for those wishing to gain employment in a Micro/Craft Brewery in the front of house areas and contains customer service and other relevant hospitality subjects.
The Brew Pub, Micro Brewing and Hospitality courses are all delivered on site at our Brew Schools. These schools are all fully functional commercial breweries and allows for the training to be relevant and focused on real world requirements.
There are no pre-requisites for undertaking any of the Certificate programs. Those wishing to undertake the Home Brewing Advanced short course would need to have basic home brewing skills and knowledge prior to commencing.
Successful graduates in the Certificate programs could expect to gain employment in entry level positions within the micro/craft brewing and hospitality industries. Potential positions may include; assistant brewer, bar person and wait person.
Yes for the Certificate III Brew Pub and Micro Brewing courses. The Queensland Governments Certificate III Guarantee Funding is available to eligible participants.
Calibre Training & Development is an approved pre-qualified supplier of the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program.
The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports the Queensland Government’s Working Queensland jobs plan. The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III qualification. It also supports Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications.
The Certificate 3 Guarantee is targeted at Certificate III qualifications because they are considered the entry-level qualification most often needed to gain employment in many industry sectors.
Given the benefits that accrue to individuals from training, students undertaking Certificate III training and non-concessional students undertaking lower level training, will be required to contribute to the costs of their training through a co-contribution fee.
The fee may be paid on behalf of the student by the employer or a third party, but not by Brewery Training Australia or Calibre Training and Development.
