The certificates are recognised for their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
There are many VETiS programs students can undertake while studying during year 10, 11 & 12 which can lead to employment or further education at TAFE, RTO or University.

VETiS in VCE:
On successful completion of a VETiS program students are eligible for credit of up to four units on the VCE Statement of Results. Two units are deemed to be at unit 1-2 level and two at 3-4 level. Students receive credit towards completion of their certificate as well as the nationally recognised certification (where available) and in some cases, they can complete further assessment to obtain a study score.
A Study Score is available for a number of VETiS programs. Students wishing to obtain a study score will need to:
- Achieve all competencies,
- Successfully complete all units of work
- Undertake further assessment in the examination period.
VETiS in VCAL:
Successful completion of a VETiS program allows VCAL students to gain credit in the VCAL certificate in either the Industry Specific Skills or the Work Related Skills strands. The credit may be at Foundation, Intermediate or Senior level.
It is important to note, VCAL students undertaking an Intermediate or Senior level certificate must undertake a VETiS program to meet the minimum VCAL course requirements of the Industry Specific Skills strand.
