Can you complete a pre apprenticeship at tafe whilst on a tourist visa?

Hello All,

I'm asking if anyone has any idea if you can complete a pre apprenticeship course at a tafe in victoria whilst on a tourist visa. I am aware you are allowed to complete study for up to 3 months whilst in a tourist visa is it is requested when applying. My partner and i are planning to return to australia in 2013 permanently however we will visit family and friends for travel and to organise our documents in order to apply for a de facto visa. Although we will have the funds to not have a need to work, I plan to work and he plans to join a local cricket team to meet people and experience the lifestyle in Australia in preparation for our move in 2013. I appreciate all suggestions and information given. I do want to be totally honest with the immigration department about our visit however im worried if we mentioned this course they will think my partner is unlikely to leave australia after this visit. He has previously visited Australia for 3 months and didnt have any trouble getting a visa granted. Thanks for your help.

I imagine you would have to ask the TAFE whether they will enroll someone on a tourist visa. If they say it's fine, and he can get a letter of enrollement, then this might help if he got stopped by customs.
