What is a National Qualification in Drilling?

The Australian Qualifications Framework

In all the Training Packages, competency standards are aligned to The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), which covers qualifications issued by the secondary schools sector, vocational education and training, training providers and higher education institutions (mainly universities). Certificates are formally named “Certificate I, II, III and IV”. The qualifications in the Framework are shown in the following table.

Under the AQF, qualifications issued in the vocational education and training sector - from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma, will be based on achieving competency standards.

What is a National Drilling Qualification?


A National Qualification is a Certificate in Drilling issued to a person who has been successfully assessed against the National Industry Competency Standards.


The process of assessment is either carried out on-the-job with a qualified industry assessor or through a Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) process involving the preparation of a portfolio outlining the participant's experience in drilling.

 

Once the assessment or portfolio has been audited by ADITC Ltd, a Certificate in Drilling is issued.  A National Qualification Card is also issued at the same time.


Most companies already have an assessment process set into place but both companies and individuals are welcome to contact us for further information and for assistance at any stage of the process.


Qualifications available in the Drilling Industry Training Package


Qualifications available are sector specific Certificates I, II, III and IV, and Diploma and an industry-wide Advanced Diploma.

If a person doesn't complete a qualification, they will receive a Statement of Attainment, or a record of units completed successfully. Training can continue at a later date until a full qualification is achieved.
