Online Courses Australia advises that it has ceased operations on 29 March 2017 following cancellation of the registration of Online Courses Australia Pty Ltd (OCA), as a registered training organisation, by the Australian Skills Quality Authority on that date.

It had been planned that OCA would voluntarily deregister at the end of 2017, allowing it to teach out existing students and assist in the transfer of some students to other teaching institutions to finish their courses.

The OCA team are very disappointed with this outcome. OCA have worked closely with industry body Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) to offer tuition assurance support under the Tuition Assurance Scheme, and to support the transfer of accredited students to alternative providers. Students needing information about this scheme should visit the ACPET Activations website.
