Extension to transition period for 13 High-risk work Units of Competency

13 August 2019

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to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.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 an extended transition period for the following 13 High-risk work Units of Competency:

  • TLILIC0012 - Licence to operate a vehicle loading crane (capacity 10 metre tonnes and above)
  • TLILIC2001 - Licence to operate a forklift truck
  • TLILIC2002 - Licence to operate an order picking forklift truck
  • TLILIC2005 - Licence to operate a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more)
  • TLILIC3003 - Licence to operate a bridge and gantry crane
  • TLILIC3004 - Licence to operate a derrick crane
  • TLILIC3006 - Licence to operate a non-slewing mobile crane (greater than 3 tonnes capacity)
  • TLILIC3007 - Licence to operate a portal boom crane
  • TLILIC3008 - Licence to operate a slewing mobile crane (up to 20 tonnes)
  • TLILIC4009 - Licence to operate a slewing mobile crane (up to 60 tonnes)
  • TLILIC4010 - Licence to operate a slewing mobile crane (up to 100 tonnes)
  • TLILIC4011 - Licence to operate a slewing mobile crane (over 100 tonnes)
  • TLILIC3019 - Licence to operate a reach stacker (greater than 3 tonnes capacity)

The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for these Units of Competency ends on 1 January 2020.

The 13 High-risk work Units of Competency 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.
