What is an RTO?
A registered training organisation (RTO) is a provider registered by ASQA (or a state regulator) to deliver nationally recognised VET training and qualifications.
Registration by ASQA confirms that the provider is capable of meeting rigorous government standards and is permitted to issue nationally recognised qualifications.
There are currently around 4000 RTOs in Australia. The national register, training.gov.au, maintains a complete list of RTOs.
Registered providers can offer certain qualifications (per their scope of registration) at the following levels:
- Certificates I, II, III and IV
- Advanced Diploma
- Graduate Certificate
- Graduate Diploma.
