Enrolling in a Qualification

The following information applies to students enrolling in accredited Vocational Education (VET) Qualifications with AIM.

Student Suitability

Students who are enrolling in a VET qualification with the Australian Institute of Management Education and Training (AIM) will undergo a suitability check as part of the enrolment process. This suitability check is to determine that each student has sufficient language, literacy and numeracy skills to enable them to successfully complete their course. If AIM has concerns about a student's academic ability, we will request that the student provide AIM with additional information to support any decision about the enrolment including any support for the student.

Please note that a student's enrolment with AIM is provisional until the entry criteria have been met. Students that meet the criteria will have their enrolment status with AIM confirmed. Students who do not meet the criteria will have their enrolment cancelled in accordance with AIM’s Withdrawal Deferral and Refunds Policy.

Please note that the minimum age for students enrolling in vocational courses by AIM is 18 years at the time of enrolment.
