Change in how unit codes are allocated in VET accredited courses

The method for allocating codes to units of competency is changing and will apply to VET accredited course applications received from 1 September 2019.

You will need to assign codes as Unit 001, Unit 002 (etc.) for reference during course development. ASQA will allocate unique unit codes upon granting accreditation for the parent course.

Example code allocation


The ASQA accredited course document template will be amended to include explanatory advice. A new version of this template will be published closer to the implementation date.

For further information regarding the change to the allocation of units codes in VET accredited courses, contact the Course Accreditation Team by email at or call the ASQA Info Line on 1300 701 801.
