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 Transition, ASQA will 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 qualifications listed above for all providers with scope for delivery, for continuing students only.

The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for this qualification ends on 31 January 2024

The decision to extend the transition end date for these qualifications and cohorts was supported by PwCs Skills for Australia, Government of South Australia, Department for Education and Victorian TAFE Accounting Network/VTAN Group.

ASQA consulted with the VRQA and TAC WA for this extended transition request.

These qualifications will remain on the provider’s scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period.
