In Australia, courses are available at Government funded Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutes and a wide range of Registered Training Organisations and independent institutions.

VET qualifications are usually awarded up to Diploma level under the Australian Qualifications Framework. However, certain courses can be used as partial credit towards University Bachelor degree programs, and certain TAFE institutions can offer Bachelor degrees and post-graduate diploma courses to fill certain specialised industry requirements. Most VET institutes are closely aligned to Australian universities, and courses can guarantee university entrance when achieving the required grades.
