CMA is an approved provider of VET Student Loans. This means eligible students can defer payment of their tuition fees by accessing a government loan. It forms part of the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP). Students repay their loan through the tax system, once they are earning the minimum threshold level for repayment, which is $45,881 for the 2019-20 income year.

A VET Student Loan remains a personal debt obligation until it is repaid to the Commonwealth. VET Student Loans will only be approved for students who meet the eligibility criteria. Only a limited number of high quality providers have been approved. This means you can be rest assured that CMA is a trusted, quality training provider and your learning is in good hands.


CMA’s online system provides students with access to all their course materials in a single place. This includes textbooks, presentations, images, videos, course notes and inspo sites as well as providing access to assignments and our easy upload system for assessment submission. This compliments your classroom learning and ensures you have all the information you need at your finger tips. Students need to have a tablet or laptop to access CMA’s learning management systems, a mobile phone is not an acceptable device.
