What is an appropriate volume of learning for a qualification type?

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) provides a guide to the volume of learning (see ‘AQF volume of learning indicators’ table), which describes how long a learner who does not hold any of the competencies identified in the relevant units of competency or modules would take to develop all the required skills and knowledge.

Your RTO is required to comply with the AQF in applying the volume of learning to your programs. You must therefore develop and implement strategies for training and assessment that are consistent with the AQF.
