Extended transition period: ACM40321 - Certificate IV in Animal Behaviour and Training
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 Guidance for Providers – Learner Transitions, 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.
ASQA has recently approved an extended transition period for the qualification ACM40321 - Certificate IV in Animal Behaviour and Training for ASQA registered 5 RTOs with scope for delivery for new and continuing students.
The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for this qualification ends on 15 July 2024.
ASQA consulted Victorian Registration and Qualification Authority (VRQA) and Training Accreditation Council Western Australia (TAC WA) for this extended transition request.
The decision to extend the transition end date for this qualification was supported by Skills Service Organisation – Skills Impact and Animal Care and Management Industry Reference Committee.
ACM40321 - Certificate IV in Animal Behaviour and Training will remain on ASQA’s Registered RTOs scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period unless the RTO chooses to withdraw it from scope prior.
