A web-based theory course is conducted online and lead by one of QAC’s qualified instructors (via the QAC Learning Management System and a Zoom link). Students are required to be present during the set course hours (generally between Mon-Fri 8.30am – 4.00pm AEST, but these times can vary depending on the course and the student time zone). Attendance is checked daily, and students must be present for 90% of the course to be eligible to pass the course.

Students require access to a reliable internet connection, a laptop or a tablet with a camera, and a suitable workspace located in a quiet area. Ideally, we suggest having access to two screens/or devices for the duration of the theory course – one, with a camera, for the instructor course presentation (Zoom program) and the other to display the corresponding course notes.

Yes, you are required to have a QAC approved Invigilator to supervise your exams.

Students are responsible for arranging their own invigilator to supervise their exams. Alternatively, students that live within Southeast Queensland have the option of sitting their exams at QAC Offices and utilising one of the QAC invigilators.


  • Who is a ‘suitable’ Invigilator? Ideally, QAC Invigilators should be a person within your organisation who is in a position of responsibility and not able to benefit from access to, or assist you in, your examination/s. Typically, this is, but is not limited to, Quality Managers, Administration/Accounts Team, Aviation Post Holders or, a Justice of the Peace.


  • OK, so what’s next? As your invigilator is supervising the examination for, and on behalf of QAC, your invigilator needs to hold a QAC ‘invigilator’ authorisation.


  • How is my Invigilator Authorised? There are no special qualifications required however, you need to organise for your nominated invigilator to provide their ‘resume’ and a ‘confirmation of employment letter’ (or similar) to our Training Team. After they have received these documents, they will liaise with your nominated invigilator to get them approved as soon as possible.

NB: this process needs to be finalised before the commencement of your course.

Certificates are issued a minimum of 15 business days following successful completion of the course, including examinations.
