Standards for RTOs 2015

On 26 September 2014, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Industry and Skills Council agreed to new regulatory standards for training providers and regulators—the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015. These replaced the Standards for NVR RTOs 2012.

ASQA uses the Standards to ensure nationally consistent, high-quality training and assessment across Australia's vocational education and training (VET) system. Compliance with the Standards is a requirement for:

  • all ASQA registered training organisations
