Standards for VET Accredited Courses
The Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012 apply to courses accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) from commencement of its operations on 1 July 2011. The purpose of standards is to formally identify the standards that apply to course design.
The Standards also apply to courses that were accredited by state and territory bodies prior to the referral of their VET regulation powers to the Commonwealth, and the states' transition to the national arrangements.
The Standards are a legislative instrument under subsection 188(1) of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.
