Yes, ASWA’s Diploma courses are nationally recognised with Australian accreditation so you can be sure that you will receive the highest standard of training available.

The ASWA Wellness Within personal wellness program is well respected and provides you with a certificate upon completion. Note that this course does not result in a nationally accredited qualification.

Our partnership with Southern Cross University provides you with up to 8 units of advanced standing/credit into the Bachelor of Business and the Bachelor of Business in Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Most Universities will give you credit for up to for up to 4 (elective) subjects into their Business degree or Management Degree programs. This is equivalent to approximately one term. This is up to the discretion of the University to which you apply.

Depending on your previous level of experience and which course you are enrolling into, a guideline of hours per week to allow for study are:

Accredited Diplomas – 1 to 2 hours per week (1 hour of research and reading plus 1 hour of activities)

Note: Assessment in Diploma courses consists of 12 projects over 12 months. These include highly relevant and interesting case studies, activities and practical projects. Many of our students use their current workplace as the basis for the projects in their learning program to practice their newfound skills.  The project hours are in addition to the 2 study hours per week and are dependent on your individual level of  work and study experience and the needs of your organisation. On average, aim to allocate 8 hours per week and to complete one project per month.

 

Wellness Within Individual Wellness program – 1 hour x 8 Principles of Wellness = 8 hours total

We provide both online and offline support with real people for all of our learning programs.

Your ASWA support team is just an email or phone call away Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm AEST. We will always endeavour to respond to your query the same day, however if that is not possible, it will always be within the next business day.
