How long will it take ASQA to process my application for new TAE qualifications?
Reflecting the critical role the TAE training package plays in assuring quality in the VET sector, ASQA is implementing stronger evidence requirements for TAE Training Package training products from April 2016. The assessment of the evidence provided can take some time. ASQA is also likely to undertake further regulatory review—including audits—of RTOs that apply for these qualifications in some cases.
If an audit is required, an application to change scope of registration may take up to six months.
When undertaking business planning, please take into account the possibility that ASQA may undertake further regulatory review—including an audit—in relation to any application to add training products to your scope of registration.
