Transition Arrangements

There are certain RTO activities that must be completed in set timeframes when a training product is superseded, removed or deleted from the national VET register.

Assessment Tools

An ‘assessment tool’ is defined as both “the instrument(s) and procedures used to gather and interpret evidence of competence”.

Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF)

Records Management

Records management is an important activity in an RTO as it ensures that records are created, stored securely and preserved for as long as they are needed.

Reasonable Adjustment

RTOs have an obligation to assist learners who may need some flexibility in training and assessment so that their individual needs can be met.

Informing Learners

Information for prospective learners must be clear, current and factual. Timing and methods of delivering this information should also be considered.

Fees and Refunds

All RTOs must be explicit about their policies for collecting fees from students, and the conditions under which refunds may be issued.

Funding Arrangements

Knowing what qualifications are listed for funding contracts, and what threshold amounts are, is vital when looking to secure this type of income stream for your RTO.

Jobs and Skills Councils (JSCs)

Jobs and Skills Councils (JSCs) have four broad functions and responsibilities, including: workforce planning; training product development; implementation, promotion and monitoring; and industry stewardship.


As one part of the endorsed component of a Training Package, qualifications are a group of Units of Competency ‘packaged’ together as the requirement for working in a particular industry role at a specific level. A qualification is also the official documentation recognising competency in all of the units specific to a particular grouping of units.
