Credit Transfer:

You are able to gain credit towards your TAFE studies through your VCE or VCAL subjects. In other words, TAFE will count some parts of your courses towards a TAFE course if the two are similar.

This can mean that you won't have to study certain modules of the TAFE course because TAFE deems that you have already completed it at school.

This can often shorten your TAFE course.
