ASQA approves extended transition period for ACM30317 Certificate III in Captive Animals to 30 December 2022
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.
The decision was made with support from Skills Impact in their role as the Skills Service Organisation for the ACM Animal Care and Management Training Package. It was demonstrated to ASQA that learners would be genuinely disadvantage if they were required to transition to the replacement qualification.
The ACM30317 Certificate III in Captive Animals 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.
