The Australian Academy of Business - Experience the Difference

The Australian Academy of Business (RTO #32138) is a very successful and highly progressive Registered Training Organisation, registered by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), who is the national regulator for vocational education and training. We provide business courses geared for a more productive and results driven workforce.

 We invite you to read our Mission, Vision & Values Statement.

All Business courses are approved by ASQA and approval and content can be found on 

Our point of difference is the manner and enthusiasm in which we facilitate our learning: additional skills, knowledge and attitudinal coaching are woven into the core curricula of each course.


TAAB offers a range of Business, Business Administration, Management and Financial Services courses geared towards employment. A University Pathway is easy with TAAB: Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma Business courses are streamlined for Uni entry.

Life-long learning

We provide a partnership with our students that can last a lifetime. Our training and education is nationally accredited and thus provides for articulation from Certificates to Diplomas to Advanced Diplomas, and on to University under the Australian Qualifications Training framework. Through our various strategic alliances your education and training throughout your entire career is not limited to any particular geographical region. We see this as an important capacity for individuals who wish to explore a future from remote and regional areas.

Recognition of prior learning

TAAB recognises prior learning or current competencies and provides direct credits and assistance with applying for recognition of prior learning, where relevant.


Student Support Services

TAAB has established student support services to ensure that all aspects of the students’ educational life are supported when and if required. Some of the services are: Language, literacy and numeracy assistance • Pastoral care and Counselling • Academic study support • Safety and security


Business Courses With Real Flexibility

Our business courses are crafted to be learner centred. This means that courses are tailored to suit your learning style. Our course facilitators practice accelerated training techniques that enable the students who wish to push ahead to achieve the qualification in what might be a fraction of the time taken by other students.

 TAAB Executive team, trainers and assessors have a unique transition process that identifies each student’s inherent capacity. This process enables the design of an individual career progression plan, which leads to the development of that individual to their fullest potential. In each course, TAAB provide a boutique learning environment by restricting each class size to no more than 10 students.
