Upgrade to
Certificate IV in Design


If you have successfully completed the Intensive Foundation Course and you need a qualification for your studies, we have the solution. Students who complete the Intensive Foundation Course are eligible to upgrade to the accredited CUA40715 Certificate IV in Design qualification.

The first step to upgrading to the CUA40715 Certificate IV in Design is a recognition process conducted by the school. Because you have submitted your work online, we have a record of your progress that we check off in our marking systems against the 15 units of competency in the CUA40715 Certificate IV in Design.

After you enrol in the accredited course, the work from your Modules 1—11 are carried over and assessed against the accredited qualification and its units of competency. So, you have a tonne of recognition of high quality work that flows into the CUA40715 Certificate IV in Design assessment records.

As part of the upgrade you will submit 5 extra assessments and these will complete the accredited qualification criteria. These assessments are industry related and will prepare you all the more for workplace expectations. Approximate time to complete the upgrade is 20—50 hours.

What assessments will I have to do?

  • The extra 5 assessments for the CUA40715 Certificate IV in Design upgrade course are as follows:
  • Refined Digital Portfolio
  • Resumé & Cover Letter
  • Industry Consultation on a past project
  • OHS assessment
  • Copyright questionnaire assessment

Students will also be given the opportunity to refine their portfolio according to feedback given in module 11 of the Intensive Foundation Course. The refined portfolio can then be submitted for review by tutors.

You have up to 3 months to complete the CUA40715 Certificate IV in Design Upgrade Course. Although approximate time to complete the five assessments is 50 hours, the course is still self paced.
