Units successfully completed during prior VCE of VCAL enrolments may be credited towards the certificate. Students who have previously completed VET courses at Certificate II level or higher may also apply for credit towards their VCE certificate, however these certificates will not contribute to an ATAR score.  Students may also complete VET courses at Certificate II level or higher at the same time as their VCE.  The VET course will contribute towards VCE units and some Scored VET courses also contribute to an ATAR score.  On completion of both courses the student will receive both the VET certificate and the VCE certificate. Students may also be able to enrol in units that will enable them to finish their VCAL certificate.

Applications for credit are made to the VCAA, through the VCE department.
