New changes to training packages and courses

BSB training package update v7.0

The Australian Government has recently endorsed a new Business Services Training Package (Version 7.0). This means that one or more of the courses you may be studying may be updated or superseded with an updated or new course.
Some of these changes include updates for:

  • Course name
  • Course code
  • Course duration
  • Subjects
  • Entry requirements

Course change FAQ
If your course is affected by these changes, you will be contacted by APC and provided with more information.            
It is important that you pass all subjects in your current studies to ensure your eligibility for full qualification issuance before the course is superseded.

If your course has changed its name, course code, duration or entry requirements, don’t worry. You can finish your superseded course and graduate with your qualification during the teach-out period. The teach-out period for superseded courses runs until the end of Term 1, 2022 (3 April, 2022). 

Please feel free to contact Student Care on Live Chat, if you have any questions about these changes.
