Credit in the VCE or VCAL
Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology: recognition of up to six units of credit at Units 1 and 2 level.
Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology : recognition of up to two units of credit at Units 1 and 2 level and a Units 3 and 4 sequence. Students who are able to undertake further training to complete the certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology qualification may be eligible for further credit at Units 3 and 4 level.
Note: Schools are advised that VCE VET programs are not designed as stand-alone studies. Students are strongly advised against undertaking the Units 3 and 4 sequence without first completing Units 1 and 2.
Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for the Units 3 and 4 sequence of VCE VET Information, Digital Media and Technology must undertake scored assessment for the purpose of achieving a study score. This study score can contribute directly to the ATAR, either as one of the student's best four studies (the primary four) or as a fifth or sixth study.
Where a student elects not to receive a study score for VCE VET Information, Digital Media and Technology, no contribution to the ATAR will be available.
Students who undertake additional training from certificate III and achieve a further Units 3 and 4 sequence may be eligible for an increment towards their ATAR (10% of the average of the primary four scaled studies).
Note: from 2019, increments for unscored VCE VET programs will be calculated using 10% of the lowest study score of the primary four. The policy change is outlined in the
VTAC Gazette Nov-Dec 2017
The increment is awarded by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Further information can be found on the VTAC website:
