Cool

and you got that bit wrong as well. FEE-Help only attracts interest if it is used for under graduate purposes - when used for graduate purposes there is NO charge or interest.

Hi there,
Can anyone provide any accurate information on which training organisations will be able to provide Vet Fee Help for the Diploma of Aviation? I have been in touch with the people at Vet Fee Help but as no RTO's are approved as yet there is no information, and they won't provide details on which schools have applied etc.
It would be interesting to know what the delays are, this seems to have been dragging since early 08? I read somewhere unofficial that the govt was waiting for a number of schools to register to avoid giving any private organisation a competitive advantage.
Cheers

I've currently been looking around for courses that have Fee Help available and the only provider that i've been able to find, is the Swinburne University at Melbourne - they are offering Fee Help for their Diploma of aviation.

Swinburne- Diploma in Aviation

They are still waiting for FEE HELP as well, they are unsure if it will come through this year or not... like 80% sure it will... but yeah.. who knows.. they need to hurry it along so i can get full time study next year hopefully

also if you want to know which schools are RTO and have applied for FEE HELP, just send all RTO flying schools an email and ask them if they have submitted an application, because i have asked a few schools and only a few have.

Swinburne Vet Fee Help

Hey there,
Thanks for the info, before seeing your response I checked with Swinburne and they are not registered as a vet fee help provider for the diploma of aviation as yet. Where did you find the info on when they thought they would be registered, they didn't mention any of that to me in the email they sent - just wondering if you know someone on the inside?
Have you got any idea where I can find a list of RTO's? This is a bit of a quagmire, begining to think perhaps this whole vet fee help thing won't happen its been dragging for quite some time now.
Cheers
Will

Unfortunately they were unable to get FEE HELP for the Advanced diplomas. When I applied earlier in the year they said they would be offering it, however just last week they have said they are no longer able to get FEE HELP.

Any more news on this guys? The Swinburne site now states:

"Financial Assistance for Flying Training
Eligible students undertaking the Associate Degree of Aviation, combined Bachelor of Aviation / Graduate Certificate of Aviation (Piloting) , and combined Bachelor of Aviation / Bachelor of Commerce / Graduate Certificate of Aviation (Piloting) will be able to access Commonwealth assistance for fees for both the academic units of study and flight training. HECS-HELP is available in the Bachelor Degree. FEE-HELP will be available in the Associate Degree of Aviation and Graduate Certificate of Aviation (Piloting)"

Going to melbourne and/or uni again isn't an option though so if someone knows something new about Bankstown, let me know.

VET FEE-Help is currently only available for qualifications at a Diploma or higher level. The current legislation does not permit VET FEE Help for Certificate IV level courses.

Commercial Pilot Licence qualifications are a Certificate IV level course. Therefore, no provider will offer VET FEE-Help for a CPL unless there is a change in legislation.

Students studying just the ME CIR (Diploma), FIR (Advanced Diploma) and ATPL (Advanced Diploma) qualifications can be eligible for VET FEE-Help for the cost of those qualificaitons - but not the cost of achieving a CPL.

If you enrol in a provider that has VET FEE-Help for their Diploma course, you will not get a VET FEE-Help loan for the CPL level.

You can only get VET FEE-Help if you are studying at a provider registered for VET FEE-Help.
