Last week, ASQA began its program of information sessions for registered training organisations. These 26 sessions are running in 16 metropolitan and regional centres across Australia.
The current RTO Information Sessions are targeted at the CEOs and training managers of currently registered RTOs, and due to limited places, each ASQA-registered RTO is limited to two attendees. These sessions are invite-only.
