RTO Setup & Compliance

RTO Setup

Thinking of setting up an RTO?  Let our VET specialist consultants talk to you about the compliance and business requirements so you can decide if this is the best option for your business. We can then further assist if you decide to set up the RTO business.

Velg Training can guide you through the process of setting up the RTO from the beginning through to the final stage where your business is registered as an RTO.  We take the headache out of establishing what is required, how to present the documents and the steps to follow to be successful in the application. 

As we progress through the application process we will prepare you and your team, and train you so that once your business is registered as an RTO you will be ready to take enrolments.

The application for initial registration as an RTO is a two step process.  The initial step involves preparing the application, and all business and documentation for the operation of the business as an RTO including:

  • Financial viability pack
  • Templates
  • Policies and procedures
  • Human resources documents
  • Supporting documents such as business registration, insurances etc.
  • Assessment and training materials
  • Training and assessment strategies

Velg Training will prepare the majority of these documents with the exception of:

  • The business plan and financial viability pack.  We do provide templates for these but as it is your business we are unable to prepare these for you.
  • Trainer matrix
  • Assessment material – Velg Training will assist with the review of the assessments for a maximum of four (4) units of competence and make recommendations.

What our clients are saying

“We requested onsite consulting to ensure staff were aware of the Standards required to run a compliant RTO. Content was tailored to our needs and delivered in an easily understandable format. Staff knowledge varied greatly and all found the day to be highly informative and worth the time taken away from their usual duties.”
