You simply enrol when you buy your first Cluster. Then you tackle one cluster at a time on a pay-as-you-go basis. You are enrolled in the full qualification for twelve months from commencement of your first Cluster. If you complete one Cluster per month it will take you ten months to achieve the Diploma (Full fee $1,890).  If you choose to leave before you complete the qualification, then we shall issue you with a Statement of Attainment for any units completed successfully.

Already have CHC30113 Certificate lll in Early Childhood Education and Care?

You only have to complete the 6 Diploma clusters ($1,260) because we shall provide credit transfer for Certificate lll units. All you have to do is provide a verified copy of your Certificate lll and the Record of results. How easy is that! Unfortunately, this opportunity is not available if a Certificate lll has any other code, because the rules for units changed in 2013.
