Sample forms of AQF certification documentation

This document contains sample documentation or templates1 for:

  • testamurs (issued by a registered training organisation [RTO] to learners who have met the requirements of a vocational education and training [VET] qualification)
  • records of results (issued by an RTO to accompany the testamur), and
  • statements of attainment (issued by an RTO to certify the completion of one or more units or modules from a VET qualification, or the completion of an accredited short course).

The samples are designed to support RTOs to meet the requirements of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

The AQF has also developed a guide—Certification documentation: an explanation. RTOs may consult this document for further support.

The order and placement of the required information on each document is dependent on an RTO’s own design and style guidelines. RTOs may customise certification documentation to meet their needs, provided all mandatory information is recorded.

Only the name of the issuing organisation (your RTO) can be included on testamurs/statements of attainment. Refer to the Fact sheet—third party arrangements for more information.

The Unique Student Identifier of the learner to whom a testamur or statement of attainment is being issued must not be included on the certification.
