How to Enrol
Once you have chosen your course, please ensure you read the enrolment conditions and complete the enrolment forms. Forms are available to download from our website, linked on our course pages or in person from our Kiama and Shoalhaven offices. If you need assistance, one of our friendly team can help you fill it out in person or over the telephone.
Once you have completed your enrolment forms, you can choose to submit them either via the enrolment links, email or drop them off in person. See our Contact page for details.
When to Enrol
Enrol as early as possible as courses require a minimum number of students to run and will be cancelled if this number is not reached.
Please Note: this does not apply to distance courses which have continuous enrolment for individuals.
Who can Enrol
Generally, no prior experience or qualifications are necessary, however, occasionally selection criteria may apply, in which case this will be specified in the course description. Anyone aged 15yrs and over may enrol. Persons under 15yrs may be eligible for enrolment where specified. Registered Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer are offered to all students enrolling in accredited courses.

We offer support and advocacy as required including LLN support and special requirements to meet the needs of people with disabilities where practicable. It is the participant's responsibility to notify the College of support needs.
