The Commissioners decided to:
- Cancel, under the NVR Act s 36(2)(f) and s 39, AIBT-I’s registration
with effect 35 calendar days after the date the RTO is given written notice of the decision.
The provider has filed an appeal in the Federal Court of the AAT's decision to affirm ASQA's decision. As such, the stay order previously granted by the AAT continues for the duration of the appeal.
Note: On 2 December 2019, the AAT varied the stay order dated 30 September 2019 and orders that the decision is stayed subject to the following conditions:
- from 4 December 2019 not enrol or commence any student in a course or a part of a course under the ESOS Act or under the NVR Act. For the avoidance of doubt, students who are enrolled in, and have commenced a course (or a part of a course) with the Applicant on a date prior to the date of this order may continue to completion of that specific course only. However, such students may not enrol in any new or further course or commence any new or further course;
- not demand payment from any student already enrolled, but yet to commence his or her first course with the Applicant (‘subject students’), provide refunds to subject students when requested and advise subject students that they cannot commence a course or a part of a course with the Applicant until further order of the Tribunal.
