Our growth over the past twelve to eighteen months has necessitated adding campus locations to the main study hub in Thornbury. This campus location, which is ideally located in the Melbourne Central Business District, was chosen for its excellent teaching facilities.

The added attraction is its proximity to public transport as well as being a location that lends itself to the CBD’s vast variety of shopping, dining, touring and recreational activities.

It was added in April 2021to provide ACOT’s students with added flexibility in terms of the choice of campus location, especially for those students enrolled in courses with predominantly theory based study.

At both training locations, training and assessment facilities include:

  • Fully equipped classrooms with desks, chairs, projection equipment
  • Computer and printer facilities, free WIFI access
  • Resource Library
  • Recreation areas that have coffee & tea making facilities
