Flexible study with OTEN allows you to complete your course faster, especially if you are applying for recognition, or to match your own personal needs. However, you must also remember that courses are updated and replaced If the course you are studying is being replaced your teachers will notify you and discuss your options for completing the most up to date qualification.
If you are receiving a Centrelink payment to study, you must comply with the time frame you have negotiated with Centrelink.
You may request a transcript of your studies at any time by contacting OTEN. For Nationally Recognised qualifications transcripts and testamurs can no longer be issued if you have not supplied a USI or have outstanding fees. If you have completed any HSC studies, you will receive your results from the NSW Board of Studies.
When you finish your course you will be notified and receive a testamur. The testamur acknowledges that you have met the requirements of the course.
If you have lost your testamur a replacement can be printed for an administration fee. To organise a reprint please contact OTEN.
If you would like to discuss your results please contact your teacher, Head Teacher or OTEN on 131 241.
