The International Skills Training (IST) Courses have been developed by the Australian Government for offshore delivery by approved Australian RTOs to support offshore skilling needs. The courses are not AQF qualifications and therefore are not accredited or regulated by ASQA. The Department of Education and Training manages the program and its associated compliance requirements. Information or queries relating to the regulation and oversight of the program should be referred to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not all Australian registered training organisations can deliver the IST courses. RTOs must apply for a licence to deliver the IST courses. A detailed list of eligibility criteria can be found in the Program Guidelines − available at www.education.gov.au/internationalskillstraining.
