Our History

We started out as an RTO in 1989 – VM Learning – founded on our core values of H.E.A.R.T. With the aim to enrich communities, organisations and individuals through personal and professional development, VM Learning needed to develop an end-to-end solution to manage all aspects of the student lifecycle. 

That’s when our Director Reay used his passion for technology to create and implement a cutting-edge, highly intuitive and agile digital student management system. Long story short, an RTO auditor loved the new system, and asked the question that truly kickstarted the aXcelerate journey: “Have you ever thought of commercialising it?”. 

Running an RTO, Reay and Julie knew first-hand the challenges and issues facing training organisations. Their ability to get input from trainers and other VET leaders was key to developing a highly responsive product, specifically for the industry. And, with a few modifications, Reay and Julie had something special that could help other training organisations, and released the first commercial version of aXcelerate in 2008.
