Training Product Review

A ‘Training Product Review’ is an internal review of an RTO’s product offerings on scope, primarily against Standard 1.

AQTF Framework - Victoria only

Before the introduction of the Standards for RTOs 2015, the AQTF outlined compliance requirements for the registration and operation of RTOs in Australia. Now, the AQTF (in conjunction with the ‘2016 VRQA Guidelines for VET Providers’) is only used by RTOs under the jurisdiction of the VRQA.

Registration and Addition to Scope

Training providers must meet requirements specific to the relevant regulators in order to become registered to deliver VET in Australia.

Training Packages

Designed to be industry and sector skills specific, Training Packages are an integrated set of nationally endorsed Units of Competency, AQF qualifications and assessment guidelines that outline the expected outcomes of training.

Units of Competency

A Unit of Competency is the smallest component of a Training Package that can be assessed and recognised. It gives a description of the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively to a specific standard in a particular workplace role or function.

Validation

Assessment validation is a quality review process that should always be conducted against assessment tools prior to, during and after use.

Certification

Certification is formal confirmation of a person’s competency, this means there must be steps taken to maintain the integrity of an RTO’s processes for issuing this official documentation.
