Study for a career that matters with IRT Academy

IRT Academy offers a wide range of nationally recognised full qualifications, short courses and skill set packages that have been developed by experts in the Aged Care industry.

Our market leading online learning community enhances traditional face-to-face classes and consists of engaging modules and videos, online assessments, and workplace simulations that can be accessed from a variety of devices. This online content is accessible from anywhere, and provides you complete flexibility when studying for your qualification.

A blended delivery approach means you can access our digital content anywhere, anytime. You will be supported by our dedicated educators who provide traditional learning, assessment support and follow-up in the workplace.

Please note: As IRT Academy is not CRICOS registered, overseas students who have a subclass visa 500 are not eligible to join our courses (this is a government requirement).

The Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) is an Australian government register that lists all Australian education providers offering courses to people studying in Australia on student visas and the courses offered.
