General direction: Resourcing requirements—for applicants seeking initial registration or change to scope of registration

14 December 2018

ASQA has today issued a general direction about resourcing requirements for applicants who are seeking initial registration, or who wish to change the scope of their registration. The general direction comes into effect on 14 December 2018.

As a condition of registration, ASQA-registered training providers must comply with all general directions issued by ASQA.

The general direction provides guidance on the resource requirements organisations must meet at the time of lodging an application:

  • for initial registration as an RTO
  • for initial registration as a provider on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) to deliver VET courses
  • to change the scope of an existing RTO and/or CRICOS registration to deliver VET courses.

Applicants are expected to have access to all required resources for each training product included in the application at the time of submitting the application.

Resources include: trainers and assessors, educational and support services, learning resources, facilities, equipment, assessment systems and an Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS)-compliant student management system or data entry tool.

ASQA encourages all current and prospective RTOs to read the general direction, to ensure they are well prepared to fulfil the ongoing conditions of their registration.
