ASQA approves extended transition period for 3 ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package qualifications until 1 April 2024

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to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.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 below qualifications for apprentice learners. The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for this qualification ends on 1 April 2024:

  • ICP31215 Certificate III in Printing
  • ICP31315 Certificate III in Print Manufacturing
  • ICP31415 Certificate III in Print Communications

It was demonstrated to ASQA that apprentice learners would be genuinely disadvantaged if they were required to transition to the replacement qualifications as the impact of non-equivalent changes to the qualifications would result in significant gap training for learners.

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.
