About CHC30121 | Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

This qualification reflects the role of educators in early childhood education and care who work in regulated children’s education and care services in Australia. They support children’s wellbeing, and development in the context of an approved learning framework.


Flexible Delivery

Traxion Training currently delivers this qualification as assessment only via Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Students will be expected to complete a self assessment kit as a first step in completing the RPL kit. If gap training is required to attain this qualification, students will need to complete the gap training with another provider. This means that, in the event that gap training is identified, Traxion Training will only be able to offer students a Statement of Attainment.

RPL & Credit Transfer

Recognition of prior learning is all about the skills and knowledge you’ve collected through work and life experiences and then transferring them to current training course requirements. Credit transfer also recognises previous formal learning (e.g. other VET qualifications). It uses the copy of the qualification, record of results (which includes details of the issuing RTO and the date issued), statement of attainment previously issued to the student for each unit of competency, or authenticated VET transcripts downloaded from the USI (Unique Student Identifier) platform. All courses can be completed using an assessment only pathway through RPL in Traxion if the candidate possesses sufficient skills and experience as determined by the assessor.

Enrolment Conditions

Enrolments are processed upon receipt of a completed enrolment form. All policy information regarding conditions of enrolment, refunds and our guarantee to complete all training and assessment requirements once the enrolment has commenced, is contained in our Terms and Conditions.

For further information please refer to the Student Handbook.

The specific course entry requirements are:

  • Traxion Training will outline the RPL process clearly at course commencement and gather evidence from the student to demonstrate their capacity to manage the assessment requirements. If the student is not able to meet these requirements, then alternatives will be sought.  
  • Technology skills – basic level computer skills and access to a computer will be required. 
  • Student should have approximately 1 year of experience in the regulated children’s education and care service in Australia. If the student has less experience but believes that they have sufficient experience to be assessed through recognised prior learning, Traxion Training will assess these situations on a case by case basis. 
  • To achieve this qualification,  completed a total of least 160 hours of work in a regulated children’s education and care service in Australia as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of units of competency.

The RPL process was easy to navigate and achieve through Traxion training. Kristy was quick to respond to any questions and was very helpful throughout the process. I have extensive experience in my field and it was great for that to be acknowledged and the qualification to be issued because of that. Thank you.

I really didn’t want to do this as I dislike study. I thought it would be too hard trying to gather evidence etc but it was so easy and the girls were so helpful and answered queries promptly. I thoroughly recommend anyone at any age to do this. My piece of paper at the end opens up so many avenues and gives me job surety.

Kristy was fantastic from start to finish. Nothing was too much of a problem for her. I had a few personal hiccups along the way, and Kristy was always understanding, kind and patient.
