As part of their compliance obligations, a Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) provider must maintain a current scope of registration at all times. In accordance with ASQA’s General direction—Learner transition policy, a provider must manage their scope of registration to transition from:
- superseded training packages within 12 months of their publication on the national register
- superseded accredited courses
—so that they only deliver currently endorsed training packages and currently accredited courses.
As English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) courses do not have a definitive expiry date, it is expected ELICOS providers inform ASQA at renewal of registration and whenever changes occur via an Application to change CRICOS registration of changes to their scope of registration.
A provider must apply to ASQA to remove and have new training package qualifications, accredited courses and ELICOS courses added to its scope of registration by submitting an Application to change CRICOS registration, accompanied by the required fee.
