Don't get overcharged when choosing a training program!
Since the advent of VET Fee Help there has been a huge variation of fees and services across providers. Many students, particularly young students, consider VET Fee Help as an option to follow a 'study now - pay later' pathway. While this is a good way to develop your skills or gain a first qualification, you also need to look at what a range of providers offer and whether you are truly getting value for money in the long term.

Our national reputation for quality:
- We employ only trainers and assessors who are highly qualified and have been in a vocation and the training industry for more than a decade to ensure that you are trained or mentored by the best of the best
- Our courses are written to provide a volume of learning that fully matches the requirements of the Training Packages and the Australian Qualifications Framework
- Whatever your needs, we do not cut you off from learning because you cannot meet a time frame - Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans (John Lennon)
- Our students appreciate that to get the best jobs, they need to put some effort into gaining their skills and knowledge
- Our business grows as satisfied students and employers recommend us to others
- Many of our students return more than once to gain other qualifications
Disclaimer: It has been brought to our attention that StudyNet Pty Ltd has been promoting that HBTA is an RPL partner with them. Please be advised that any offer to provide them with assessment services ceased on 13/5/14 and that we are not providing any RPL assessment services to any clients of that organisation.
Please also note also that we do not have any agreements with any marketing companies to promote to students on our behalf. Only our regional trainers and our training partners (see below) may recruit students into courses they deliver on behalf of HBTA.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)
This came into effect on January 1st 2015 and will give you a unique number to enable you to look up your training transcripts and qualifications registered after that date.
All students who enrolled from January 1 2015, and those who enrolled in prior years and whose enrolment has rolled over into this calendar year must obtain a USI or we cannot issue a certificate or statement of attainment.

Moving into a new era of training
We have one foot in the e-learning door with our product for TAE40110 and TAE Diplomas being gradually converted to interactive PDFs.
Along with our plans to offer e-learning in some of our popular courses, we are also trialling the use of webinars to deliver training in short courses such as Auditing and to support the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
Also, we have registered an e-learning domain and are in the process of developing an e-learning site using Moodle. The redesign and upload of training programs is progressing, so bear with us, we are dancing as fast as we can.
Life is so exciting, why would anyone not want to learn!
Our e-learning site has been hacked and used for phishing. If you get any emails from this site (hbta-elearning.edu.au) please report them as:
Google shut the site down and we lost all our uploads which were being readied for launch this semester.
Contact us directly on 07 5502 6662 if you get any unsolicited emails purporting to come from us. We do not conduct spam or viral advertising.
No matter how hard we try and no matter how many firewalls we construct, there is always some geek in his mother's basement that can crack any codes.
Want to do a TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment?
Live beyond the Black Stump and there are no local providers? Hate the thought of slogging through an online course with limited access to a trainer?
We have something for you! We are extending our outreach programs with regional trainers who take training to the bush. Watch the space below as we add more partner organisations or travelling trainers to our 'family'.

Look Mum! No eye candy!
This site is constantly under development and has been for some time because our original web designer got married, is now living in the Rockies and constantly hiking through the Canadian Wilderness shooting bears, babies and brides (with a camera). You can follow the amazing adventures of this intrepid Australian (and now also Canadian) on www.ginevre.com or FB: Photography by Ginevre, or www.untamedland.ca.
If you want to see what she is up to http://www.facebook.com/InTheEyesOfWildlife has the preview of her documentary on how wildlife lives alongside humans. Sadly many of the animals that appear in her photographs and short films have been killed by motor vehicles and trains, making Ginevre's work even more poignant.
We are expecting a new logo, a new look site and a few bells and whistles - sometime this millenium. Meanwhile Mum has to soldier on with Creative Suite Five (which got more complicated than previous incarnations) so we concentrated on the quality of information, rather than eye candy at the moment.
Meanwhile, we will keep the information updated even without the pretty pictures, flash animations or gizmos.
