  • An Interview to identify your prior experience, existing knowledge, skills and suitability for the course.*

The Pre-training Review is used to determine the level of additional support and/or reasonable adjustment required for you to successfully complete the course.

All our classrooms have a maximum of 25 students. We believe in quality learning, so we will not compromise or overfill our classroom capacity as we believe it will jeopardise students learning.

All classrooms have a modern clean ergonomic setting , which includes quality furnishings along with a whiteboard and projector.

All our course trainers have undertaken the Australian issued TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification, which was undertaken by a highly qualified Training Organisation based in Australia. This makes our teachers amongst the few Trainers and Assessor’s (TAE40116 qualified) in Pakistan, and offers Pakistani local students the opportunity to really learn the Australian way.

APIT went through a rigorous selection process that involved interviewing over 140 lecturers.

APIT’s key selection criteria and mandatory requirements for the lecturer positions included a demonstration of strong character, exceptional communication skills, academic experience, practical workplace experience, and a real desire to produce quality students that can lead the next generation for Pakistan. Following this process, only 6 lectures were handpicked and selected to join APIT.

Students that Graduate from APiT and are looking for a pathway into Australian Bachelors, may receive advanced standing in a 3-year Australian Business Bachelor Program, as well as other Australia Bachelor Degrees.

All our course fees are structured on a fixed instalments basis throughout the duration of the course. We do not take full upfront fees for any of our courses.

APIT is all about providing the Australian way of learning, which means expect an open door policy to the entire faculty and a chill out / break out area to relax during classes.

While students are progressing through their course program, the Student Counsellor will be the main facilitator between the students and faculties.  Any performance related issues that have been identified will be managed by the Student Counsellor so our students are provided with every support mechanism in becoming a successful APIT Graduate..
