Be aware of fake online RSA training providers

Solutions to stay safe and alert

Online university qualifications and distance learning programmes are one of the best ways that have started giving people the necessary confidence, improve skills and to upgrade a career. It is thus so popular among the students and other professionals seeking help with special certifications. Flexibility in schedules for study, and saving money by curtailing the costs associated with accommodation and campus is the biggest advantage.

Sadly, the fame of online education has also led to a harmful side effect. Some online qualifications and courses out there can actually be a scam. These so-called certification experts are the most common type of internet education cheats. By carefully pretending as genuine training schools, some websites are able to cheat you by providing fundamentally insignificant online courses at an evident bargain.

Australia has now seen a number of fraudulent cases while RSA training is concerned. There are many websites which have been royally sending out wrong messages to people of getting an RSA certification for a cheaper rate than the legit ones. People fall prey to such attractive offers only to find out that these are fake and illegal.

Government of Australia has issued the license for the registered RSA training companies under which a person who trains him/herself to be the trained RSA certified professional is the only right choice for a trouble-free career in the F&B industry. The crowd who opt the easy yet non-advisable way tend to fall into the risk of proving guilty under the government radar.

What is that which makes these websites grow in numbers each day? What are those elements which go unnoticed while making the right choice of training companies? How does one differentiate between the fake and legit? Galaxy Training Australia – A 100% genuine RSA training organisation acts as an eye-opener for all those who wish to pursue RSA certification in an effective manner to brighten up their dream career.

Here are some of the points to be noticed that might go unnoticed by the attractive offers from the fakesters:


1. Government Registered:
The government registered organisations are accredited by, and regularly reviewed by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), which is a division of the Federal Government. Checking for the RTO [Registered Training Organisation] number and looking for the “Nationally Recognised Training” logo would be the first step towards safety. Using a proper education or government domain name, for e.g. www.genuine.edu.au or www.genuine.com.au would be the best test.


2. Too good to be true:
Do they sell offers which are too good to be true? RSA certification comes with a price, but here – are they offering something which is way too less or with an attractive scheme? The checkpoints would be tabs or signs which say “Pay now to get access” or “Last few slots available – Pay the full amount to get complete training/certificate”. Money-back guarantees could be there but preventing a loss instead of losing patience to get the money back is far better. Look out for the signs like “Pay later” or “Start free” that makes it more trustworthy.


3. 100% pass guarantee...really?
Some sites say things like “No-fail course” or “100% pass rate” or “Guaranteed Pass”. In such cases, you will need to find out exactly what they mean. This is against the VET training standards and is a typical example of the type of training website which appears and quickly gets shut down. The training provider website should make an assurance to you that they have skilled trainers who will work with you via phone or email if you have any problems and make sure that you learn what you need to learn and eventually pass the course only after you are eligible to take a test and come out successful with your own efforts.


4. Identification process:
RTOs are obligatory to make a practical effort to make sure that the person who is getting the certificate was the only contributor to the work during the instruction & evaluation. For a few courses, this is actually required, but for many, it is not. Make sure to read the identification procedure for the course you are doing. If you can, find a training provider who uses an online robotic identification checking solution. Most of them will ask for you actually to send an acceptable identification document. It is only the fake organisations that exclude these steps to avoid hassles. Beware of shortcuts.


5. Qualified Local Support:
Before you start your training or even payment, send a query to them by email and see how long they take to reply, or call them and see if they sound genuine. Ask if you can speak to a trainer when you call and ask what their qualification is. They should have a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or at least be in the process of accomplishing such a qualification. Check the support business hours and the time-zone of the website. Many provide support services well outside normal business hours. This is vital if you plan to complete any of your courses outside of standard business hours (mornings, evenings and weekends).
