Yes—you must submit two applications to add the items to your registered training organisation (RTO) registration and to your Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) registration.
ASQA advises providers to submit these applications simultaneously. (ASQA does not require you to wait for the RTO application to be approved before submitting the CRICOS application and providers who do so are not eligible for the fee exemption discussed below).
Fee exemptions for applicants submitting RTO/CRICOS change of scope applications.
Application fees apply to both of these applications; however, the ASQA schedule of fees 2015 allows ASQA to offer an exemption from the lower of the two application fees when the two applications are submitted simultaneously.
In practice, this means that the RTO application should be submitted using ASQAnet, and the CRICOS application should be emailed or faxed to ASQA within one business day of the RTO application being submitted. This allows ASQA to process the applications concurrently, and reduces the cost of processing the applications.
