Further extension to the transition periods for three qualifications

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.

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to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.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 further extended transition periods for the following qualifications:

  • ACM40412 Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing until 21 July 2021
  • MSF30413 Certificate III in Glass and Glazing until 2 June 2021
  • MSL50116 Diploma of Laboratory Technology until 19 January 2021.

The relevant qualification(s) 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.
