We frequently get asked about accreditation and why we offer many non-nationally accredited courses.  On that note we thought we’d share our answer to one lady who simply asked, “Why would anyone do a non-accredited course?”

"There are many reasons for taking a non-nationally accredited course.  Many of our students choose to study with Careerline in a non-accredited course because they may not be able to find an accredited version, or they may not be able to access the accredited version due to travel times, enrolment requirements, expensive costs, times and schedules of courses delivery and student number restrictions.    Some subjects just don’t fit under nationally accreditation such as Carnivorous Plants or Self Sufficiency and many counselling courses. Others you would normally would have enrol in an advanced degree to learn, such as Criminal Psychology or Vertebrate Zoology.   Many people don’t want to enrol in a long committed course; they want a certain standard of education on the subject, certification as well, but don't necessarily require a University degree or Diploma.

The ability to study flexibly, at their own pace without needing to attend work placements is also very attractive. 

At Careerline we try to bring you the best of both worlds, we offer over three hundred 100 hour non-government accredited courses, all of which are self-paced courses.

The learning experience and outcome will be equal to that of nationally recognised or government recognised courses, and it is our experience that in most cases the employer  does not care where the certification comes from, [unless it is a legislated industry such as some medical trades or health and safety], only that the, [potential] ,employee 'knows their stuff' and can demonstrate a practical knowledge and application of the subject matter. This is the outcome the student can take away from studying with Careerline courses.

Additionally Careerline courses range is certified Internationally by the IARC, and international certification body for independent education providers

course accreditation.

IARC (International Accreditation & Recognition Council)

The premier non-government accreditation agency. The IARC does not affiliate with any particular governmental accreditation agency.    They provide accreditation and recognition for quality colleges and schools globally that provide professional development courses and other types of education and training that does not fit the scope of government systems.

At Careerline we find that many of the subjects we offer simply do not fit with any government quality scheme.  We therefore provide them as professional development and personal interest courses.  Our IARC accreditation is assurance for our students of our quality and standing.

approved training counselling.

IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapists)

The IICT has given Careeline approval as a training provider for a range of complementary therapy courses including all counselling courses, life coaching, and natural animal health care.  The benefit to our students is they may join the IICT and take advantage of their professional indemnity insurance options.
