ASQA approves extended transition period for 20 qualifications from the AUR Automotive Retail, Service and Repair Training Package

18 June 2021

In some cases, ASQA is empowered to approve transition periods longer than those detailed in Clauses 1.26 (a), (b) and (c) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.

In accordance with the General Direction – Learner transition, ASQA will only consider applications for a longer transition period where it can be demonstrated that there would be genuine disadvantage to a cohort of learners if such an extension was not approved.

Where ASQA has approved an extended transition period, that arrangement applies to all RTOs delivering the specific training product to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.

ASQA has recently approved an extended transition period for the following qualifications. The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for this qualification ends on 10 December 2022:

  • AUR10116 Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation
  • AUR20218 Certificate II in Automotive Air Conditioning Technology
  • AUR20416 Certificate II in Automotive Electrical Technology
  • AUR20516 Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology
  • AUR20716 Certificate II in Automotive Vocational Preparation
  • AUR20816 Certificate II in Outdoor Power Equipment Technology
  • AUR20916 Certificate II in Automotive Body Repair Technology
  • AUR30316 Certificate III in Automotive Electrical Technology
  • AUR30216 Certificate III in Bicycle Workshop Operations
  • AUR30416 Certificate III in Agricultural Mechanical Technology
  • AUR30516 Certificate III in Marine Mechanical Technology
  • AUR30616 Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology
  • AUR30716 Certificate III in Outdoor Power Equipment Technology
  • AUR30816 Certificate III in Motorcycle Mechanical Technology
  • AUR31016 Certificate III in Automotive Sales
  • AUR31116 Certificate III in Heavy Commercial Vehicle Mechanical Technology
  • AUR31216 Certificate III in Mobile Plant Technology
  • AUR32116 Certificate III in Automotive Body Repair Technology
  • AUR32316 Certificate III in Automotive and Marine Trimming Technology
  • AUR32416 Certificate III in Automotive Refinishing Technology

It was demonstrated to ASQA that learners would be genuinely disadvantaged if they were required to transition to the replacement qualifications.

The qualifications will remain on RTOs scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period, unless the RTO chooses to withdraw it from scope prior.
