    Hello. I’m a 15 years old girl who is interested to join Certificate III in Music. I’m currently in grade10 and looking for a certificate that would bring up my QTAC level. Could you please send me some details about this course and how it will affects my OP level?

      No problem the Certificate III will certainly help your QTAC level and a Certificate IV can be done next year that is worth 8 QCE points. The Certificates have an OP equivalence though it is not a definitive number. I believe it is based on the relevance of your Certificate to your course that you apply for. “Certificate courses -
      A completed Certificate III can be given a rank of
      68 (similar to OP 15) and a completed Certificate
      IV a rank of 74 (similar to OP 12).” –
