Standard 10.7 – Industry recognition and licensing
Where course outcomes are recognised by a professional or industry body, you will need to include those details in Section B: 4.3 of the National course document template. For example, successful completion of the course may be recognised by admission to membership of a professional body.
You should also include evidence from the relevant body confirming the recognition.
Similarly, where course outcomes satisfy licensing or regulatory requirements, you will need to provide those details in Section B: 4.4 of the National course document template.
You should also include evidence that the relevant industry regulatory stakeholders have been engaged in both:
- consultation activities (to establish a need for the course)
- the course development process.
You will also need to provide evidence from the industry regulator confirming that the stated regulatory outcome can be achieved upon completion of the course.
