Getting Started: eCAF (Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form)

 Related Feature: eCAF

eCAF allows you to provide the department information for those Learners who have expressed interest in accessing HELP loan.

The eCAF system does not verify eligibility of a Learner to access HELP Loan – this remains the responsibility of the Provider.

 How does it work?

eCAF is a requirement of VET Student Loans. The eCAF system allows you to provide enrolment information to the government for Learners who have expressed an interest in accessing a HELP loan.

Wisenet’s eCAF integration allows RTOs  to send Course Enrolment information directly from Wisenet to eCAF and be informed when a Learner ‘completes’ this process; making eCAF easy and automated. This allows you to perform most or all of your eCAF requirements from Wisenet. The eCAF process can be separated into 3 main stages:

Send enrolment to eCAF

  • The information required for eCAF is generated from Wisenet. This means you save time by not entering this information into eCAF manually.
  • All you will need is your username and password specifically for API access (the format is ####ecafapi)
  • You can view the status either in eCAF or directly from Wisenet.
