As part of the transition to the full implementation of the Standards from 1 April 2015, ASQA has commenced conducting all audits against the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.
These transition arrangements ensure no disadvantage where new requirements exist. The transition period ends on 30 June 2015.
As RTOs are now being audited against the revised Standards, a new ASQA audit report template is now being used by ASQA auditors. This replaces the previous audit tools and templates and can now be used by RTOs for self-assessment against the new Standards.
It is important to note that before 1 April 2015, ASQA will still make decisions relating to the compliance of most providers against the Standards for NVR RTOs 2012.
(The exception to this is any providers that applied for registration and had that registration granted after 1 January 2015).
