The 22472VIC Certificate I in General Education for Adults focuses on the development of literacy skills to create and engage with a range of familiar and less familiar paper-based and web-based text types of limited complexity. The focus is on reading, interpreting and evaluating everyday texts and developing mathematical knowledge to apply numeracy skills in everyday familiar situations. Skills and knowledge are applied to develop and document a learning plan and prepare a portfolio.

Access Skills Training was the best experience for me, and the best thing that I could have done.

Course Participant Kylie

Thoroughly enjoyed completing my cert 3 and 4 in disability with AST, and am now working in a very rewarding career.

Course Participant Joanne

I wanted a change of careers and AST went above and beyond to find a course that suited my needs, the enrolment process was a breeze and I was supported through the process. Starting a course as an adult was very nerve racking, but the trainer I had ensured every single students needs were met and catered his teaching style to suit their needs, a very inclusive organisation and a very safe environment to be in.

Course participant Angie

Completed Cert IV in Disability with AST online, trainers were extremely helpful and the online portal was easy to navigate. Would highly recommend AST.
