APC Program: Credit Transfer

Credit Transfer is the recognition of previously completed formal training and/or qualifications. If you are eligible, applying for a Credit Transfer will enable you to fast track your certification journey.

Your previous postgraduate study may count towards credits for Units 1, 2 and/or 3 within the AHRI Practising Certification Program (APC).

Postgraduate courses accredited by AHRI

Postgraduates of an AHRI accredited course are automatically eligible for direct Credit Transfer for Units 1, 2 and 3 of the APC Program if you have completed your study within the past 10 years.

To be eligible, you will need to submit evidence that you have maintained involvement in the subject areas, to ensure currency of your knowledge and skills. 

AHRI has partnered with several educational institutions to offer this pathway to eligible students at no cost. View AHRI accredited course list.
