Stage 3—Course development

During course development, it is essential that industry and other relevant stakeholders are consulted to ensure course details are validated, including:

  • intended skills and knowledge outcomes
  • training and assessment structures and pathways.

Endorsed training package units

A VET accredited course cannot be accredited if it duplicates existing training package content. You must investigate which endorsed units may be suitable for inclusion in your course. The content of all endorsed training package units can be found on training.gov.au

If a training package unit is not available, you can develop your own units (enterprise units) as part of the course. Enterprise units must be developed in collaboration with technical experts and practitioners, and comply with the requirements of the Standards for Training Packages 2015. A course will not be accredited with enterprise units if there are existing training package units available that address the same outcomes.
