I phoned Centralink today to find out some answers but they were a bit...unspecific.
I want to know if I can claim child care rebate for my child while I am doing online course which is around 15 hours per week but 13 weeks only in duration.
I know that it has to be 15 hours per week study load but I won't get any certificate upon completion of this course but it is Australian registered provider and I know that the provider has to be registered in order to claim child care rebate during my study.
It is a part of the Bachelor degree if I decide to study further but offered as a separate online course at the university.
I also not sure if I can claim child care rebate once I am enrolled or once my study actually commenced as these dates are a few months apart.
Can someone help and let me know?

As long as its classed as full time then you should be able to. I did some subjects through Open University and when I enquired about full time hours they said that 2 subjects per study period are their equivalent to full time study

I am an online student too and get both CCB and CCR. For CCR, the number of hours that you are studying doesnt matter - you are eligible as long as you are studying. I dont think you are eligible until you start, but not 100% sure abotu this. The 15 hour rule is only for CCB and only if you want to claim for more than 24 hours a week
