As of 14 November 2013 the RII Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package superseded the RII09 edition. Accordingly under the national standards, a period of 12 months (ie. until 14 November 2014) applies for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to transition their operations across to RII.
SkillsDMC, as custodian of this training package, is reviewing Assessment Requirements across the RII training package. Further information regarding this review can be found on the SkillsDMC website.
To enable the completion of this review, the Department of Industry has determined that the period permitted for RTOs to transition from any RII09 Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package products be extended by six months.
ASQA will ensure that RII09 products on any NVR RTO’s scope of registration remain on the national register until 14 May 2015, unless voluntarily removed earlier through a no-fee application.
Please note that this action is being performed by ASQA to administer a decision by the Department of Industry, and should in no way be interpreted as a change to ASQA’s General Direction: Transition and teach-out, with which you must comply at all times.
If you require further clarification regarding the advice in this email e.g. how it will affect your scope and/or transition and teach-out queries, please contact ASQA Info line on 1300 701 801 or email enquiries [at] asqa.gov.au.
